I am still thinking about this issue, especially after discussing it with someone else, off ATS.
If these people were able to sue the posters after the judge demanding the anonymous people's identities be handed over ( and we still dont know exactly what was said) would a thread like this be something that could result in her suing those who responded with not so nice things?
Octuplet Mom Defends....
If she reads this thread, does she now have a case against us (I say us, because even I posted on it and wasnt so nice)?

Interesting how an ATS Forum Moderator or Site Owners have yet to make statements about this. How about a few words?

I think that everyone should understand that you cannot be tried in a court of law for expressing your opinions regardless of how tasteless or bizarre they might be.
God Bless America!
