Lori Drew, the woman who created a fake MySpace profile to harass her daughter's friend, Megan Meier, is arguing, again, that she did nothing wrong. She's been indicted on computer fraud charges for violating MySpace's terms of service by creating a profile for the fake Josh Evans. Her lawyers are now arguing that if she can be prosecuted criminally under the laws which were originally designed to prosecute hackers, then anyone violating a website's Terms of Service agreement is a criminal. That seems bad for those of us with fake online identities, but everyone hates Lori Drew. Decisions, decisions. [Washington Post]
