You Are Not Anonymous

The Justice Department just took unsealing the details/IP addresses to another level by asking to give up who made comments that could be seen as threatening.

No surprise in the world of Oh-No-You're-Not-Anonymous YikYak.

What I do wonder about, however, is how this will align with the Supreme Court's ruling regarding the Anthony Elonis case?  If threatening bodily harm to your ex-wife can be taken as First Amendment free expression/parody . . . . then how can Justice ask for the info of jack asses making trolling comments?  Seems like the quick defense is Elonis' -- it was all a joke.

More to come, obviously . . .
