In the latest of a series of recent cases where people are suing to identify anonymous folks who made immature, insulting or mean comments about them online, we have the case of Broadway actor Marty Thomas. An anonymous Twitter user, who apparently only had about 100 followers, apparently had posted a bunch of "blind item"-type Twitter messages, including accusing another Broadway actor of giving Thomas crabs. Now, of course, Thomas is suing to get Twitter to reveal who the anonymous Twitter user was. But, again, as we've noted in other cases, before this, very few people would have seen the claim, and even fewer likely would have taken it seriously. Yet, now, the story is being splashed across various NY tabloids, which seems like it only serves to call a lot more attention to the overall issue.
