In 2006 internet troll Jason Fortuny conducted his infamous “Craigslist Experiment” by posting a fake Women Seeking Men ad on Seattle Craigslist. What makes this remarkable is that Mr. Fortuny decided to post every single response in full detail on Encyclopedia Dramatica, including names, photos or emails. Unsurprisingly, people sued and one of them won a default judgment ordering Mr. Fortnuy to pay almost $75,000 in damages [PDF].
UPDATE: 10 Zen Monkeys interviewed the guy who sued Jason Fortuny.
