i just found a news report on this. there's a damned good chance that this guy wasn't just being an internet tough guy, and so he gets what he deserves in this case.

the legal precedent is pretty terrible, however. "someone says **** on internet--PROSECUTE"

edit: apparently he had driven past one of the forum members on the street he sped on, who posted this:

“If I ever see you speeding down the neighbourhood again, the cops are going to be the least of your worries!!!”

why isn't that guy getting prosecuted for making threats? if the speeding claim counts, why doesnt this?
