Convict Site Could Be Problematic

from the spoof-into-reality dept

Well, we were just talking about spoof sites becoming real in a self-fulfilling prophecy kind of way so here’s another one. On Monday, I said I thought that the convicts reunited site was a hoax that was just a spoof of Friends Reunited. However, it turns out that the site was started as a hoax, but drew so much interest, that now it’s real. Of course, now that it’s real, people are saying the founders might run into legal problems – because they could be charged with defamation and “incitement to crime”. I wonder what that means for the Bullies Reunited site.
