Stookey went to work but discovered unmasking anonymous Internet posters wasn't easy. Then he learned of the one key piece of information he needed: the Internet Protocol (IP) address, a unique fingerprint left by every device that accesses the Internet.

"Once you get the IP address, you can go to your telephone companies and say, 'Give me the telephone number it comes back to, along with the name and address of the person who owns that telephone number,'" Stookey said.

Here is a petition to reform or end Topix abuse. The effect cyberbullying has had on our society has not been a good one. There have been many cases where people have ended up with mental health issues and even attempted suicide over it. It needs reformed or stopped. One would hope Topix would have the decency to police itself better, step up, and be an example in the online community and reform itself without the need for a petition or legal action. It would be the right thing to do.

This is just like what that North Georgia Newspaper Editor Norman Cooper did. He posted under so many names and called that mountain man a sex offender. Its a shame that man quit his fight in court. I understand he proved Mr Cooper did it but he should have fought for the money. Now Mr Cooper is targeting that man again and just because he is printing the truth about things. Such a shame.
