The now defunct blog "Skanks in NYC" has been the subject of much controversy since a comment made by the blog’s owner became the subject of a legal dispute. The anonymous blog writer wrote that Canadian Vogue model Liskula Cohen deserves the first place award for being the biggest skank in NYC.
Liskula Cohen filed a suit against the blogger and the Google-owned blog was taken down. That, however, was not good enough for Cohen, who charged that she is a victim of cyberbullying and therefore is entitled to know the identity of the blogger in order to move on with her life.
A judge has granted Liskula Cohen’s request and this precedent-setting battle opens the door for any celebrity who feels they are the victim of cyberbullying to actively prosecute and unmask anonymous bloggers—even if the comments were only made in jest or taken out of their original context.
I wonder what Liskula Cohen plans on using her new found information for. Perhaps for revenge? Or something equally as immature as the anonymous blogger has done? Anonymous gossipy bloggers everywhere will be sleeping a little less soundly tonight, I suspect.
