Worse than Autoadmit?

Daniel Solove (George Washington) suggests a new site devoted to college gossip may well be worse than Autoadmit, that notorious cesspool of infantile morons, racists, and misogynistic freaks masquerading as a law school discussion board.  One must agree with Professor Solove:  until the disastrous Section 230 of the misnamed Communications Decency Act is repealed or revised, and regular libel law comes to Cyberspace, we are going to see more of these worthless sites.

UPDATE:  A timely indicator of the illusion of anonymity on the Internet, involving this very college gossip site.  (Recall that a similar indicent occurred with Autoadmit.)
