joel_archer writes "The Delaware Supreme Court on Wednesday reversed a lower court decision requiring an Internet service provider to disclose the identity of an anonymous blogger who targeted a local elected official. Judge Steele described the Internet as a 'unique democratizing medium unlike anything that has come before,' and said anonymous speech in blogs and chat rooms in some instances can become the modern equivalent of political pamphleteering. 'We are concerned that setting the standard too low will chill potential posters from exercising their First Amendment right to speak anonymously,' Steele wrote."

Story so far...

Bachelor:

It was a crowded raliway platform. Manav looked around in apprehension at the other students bustling around him with their luggage in tow. He weaved around them and looked at anxious mothers kissing their children goodbye and worrying fathers giving out last minute advices. He dragged his torn suitcase behind him and searched for any empty seat. The train was to leave to in fifteen minutes. Finding an empty seat in a compartment, Manav tried to put his suitcase on it and occupy it, but one look at his tattered clothes and the girl sitting there moved to occupy the empty seat. Nobody would let him sit near them and Manav was left standing all alone struggling to stop the tears streaming down his face. And then he saw....

... a woman who looked like his mother! At a closer look, he found it was not his mother! His tears did not move any of the fellow passengers. They looked at him with disgust.

Just a month back, his life too was as cozy as theirs was! His family had gone on a vacation to Kashmir! And just when they were about to leave Uri, the earth quake struck! Everyone of his family was lost in it! He went to Delhi by an Army van. None of his relatives were ready to accomodate him. With no one to support him, whatever little wealth his family had, was split among the relatives! Finally, it was decided that he should stop his studies & get back to Delhi to work in his Uncle's kiraana dukhan!

So he is, in the station, on the way to Trivandrum,with his tattered clothes & torn suitcase, that he has been wearing since last week. He would go to the Sainik school in Trivandram and get back his belongings to join the prestigious job in his Uncle's petty shop!

Suddenly, something struck him! He hit the girl who did not give him the seat, snatched her gold chain, jumped out of the train and ran like a mad fellow, until he was stopped by....

Talking about the petition, I searched google for IIPM and found that Gaurav's blog ranks fifth. I read on places like desipundits and found myself that IIPM uses search engine spamming for higher rankings. If all the readers can just blogroll Gaurav [ or place a link to his blog in your blogs ] it would be a sweet revenge. One can hope to see his blog as the first result after googling. [ Search engine ranks also depend on the number of sites that link to your page ]

This entire saga has gone to a tremendously stupid level now with IIPM pursuing this matter still! I hope IIPM drops the matter and let everyone live peacefully!

Good luck to Gaurav on his future venture!
