Anonymous Comments Have Same Value As Trash

Corbett not alone on anonymity

Paul Carpenter
Morning Call

Kindred spirits can be found in the oddest places. Republican gubernatorial nominee and state Attorney General Tom Corbett, for example, does not much care for people who spout off anonymously.

His office issued a subpoena, it was reported Friday, to force the Internet blabbing service '' Twitter'' to fess up and give Corbett the names of two critics who have said uncomplimentary things about him. More...

Isn't this old news? Wasn't it even reported here on Solomons that Corbett withdrew the subpoenas after Cott was jailed?

Either way, it's worth bringing to the attention of the People what this crook has done.

He has used the Grand Jury to intimidate political critics. Used the Grand Jury to try and force Twitter into divulging confidential information about online critics so that Corbett and his unjust "hit crew" could go after them next.

Craziest part about the entire mess is that Tom Corbett is doing exactly what he just convicted Brett Cott of doing.

Abosulutely insane, this man is the LAST person we want as Governor - unless of course you don't cherish your freedom of speech.

I disagree with Mr. Carpenter; anonymous comments are definitely not worthless! The source of the information doesn't justify or nullify the information itself; we should judge what is said on its own merits, not based on who said it. To issue a subpoena asking to divulge the identities of people who weren't doing anyone real harm (criticism isn't real harm) would definitely be abuse of the legal system. I am posting this anonymously, not because I would be ashamed to be credited for it, but on principle.
