Craigslist revenge crowdsourcer strikes again
The Internet is dangerous in the hands of some deranged individuals. The law student who put my details into a Craigslist casual encounters ad struck again this month.
This time he lashed out against a female lawyer who refused to hire him. He created a fake website for her law office, hoping to wreak havoc on her Google results. Ironically, he labels her the Internet predator.
After I wrote about the fake website (but didn’t link it so as not to improve its page ranking) at Above the Law, the law school student took the site down (Yay for service journalism!), perhaps because of my pointing out that he was probably violating defamation and criminal harassment laws.
Apparently he wasn’t paying attention in his criminal law class.
