"Dog bites man never makes the newspaper. Man bites dog is news!"

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post, "Prickman explains defamation!"

"We're told Dr. McKee' ..... spent more than $7,000 to scrub the Internet of more than 100 vitriolic comments, many traced to a single computer (IP address) in Duluth."'

It seems the plaintiff stops short of claiming that single computer is the defendant's; although he leaves that impression in the article. Were it the defendant's computer, would he not be facing 100 amended charges?

The website http://www.medicaljustice.com/medical-malpractice-tort-reform-detail.asp?article-id=708180903 suggests a different scenario - The Barbara Streisand Effect - is responsible for the plaintiff's bad publicity.

Dear Anonymous:

Thank you very much for contacting CyberSmokeBlog. Our questions would be, "Exactly how much is more than 100 ..... 110, 120 ..... "more than" means different things to different folks. Also, "How many were not traced to a single computer IP address in Duluth?"
Another thank you for the link which is to a site called Medical Justice. Very well researched and written - highly recommended! Does an outstanding job explaining the ins and outs of doctors suing patients and vice versa.
