Moms Behaving Badly
A dispute between two young girls escalated into an online fight between the mothers. The mother of one of the girls posted an ad on Craigslist offering sex with men, and listed the phone number of the other girl's mother as the contact. Twenty-two people called the number. The woman has now been charged with aggravated harrassment. [Newsday]

Ahh, can I get into a on-line fight with some-one?

Purely on the basis that they get an ad on Craigslist up for me?

Joel, it is so easy to get into an online fight these days. Take it from me; I don't even have to try that hard on some websites ( Though here it takes me having to think quite hard to question American foreign policy to do so ), I just have to do to another person what they did to me in an online game and they fly into a rage.
