I couldn't be happier.
While enjoying my morning coffee, I read that two of the Yale Law women who were woefully abused by anonymous posts at AutoAdmit a few years ago settled their lawsuits against the posters (see the ABA Journal story here). Those anonymous posters weren't trotting out any of the usual excuses for hiding behind pseudonyms: fear of retaliation, fear of losing their jobs, etc. They were cowards and bullies, pure and simple. And now, at least one of them has been named--and publicly shamed.
