(Court TV) — Mike Marlowe fully admits that he sometimes gave George Gillespie a hard time in that AOL chatroom.

But never in his wildest imagination did he expect to be sued in court for what he characterized as "razzing."

"We gave him crap," said Marlowe, a 33-year-old welder in Fayette, Ala. "I'm not going to deny it. I teased him and he teased me back. He gave it back better than he ever got it."

A generation ago, such petty personal beefs might have been settled with fists outside the corner bar, but now it's the Internet age — and Ohio resident George Gillespie instead filed a $25,000 lawsuit against two erstwhile cyber chums he met in the sprawling 900-room, mostly anonymous society that makes up AOL's chat universe.

Gillespie, 53, claims that Marlowe and Bob Charpentier, a 52-year-old Oregon resident, insulted him and harassed him in the AOL chatroom called "Romance — Older Men" to the point where it inflicted "severe emotional distress and physical injury that is of a nature no reasonable man could be expected to endure it."

The complaint, expected in court on Jan. 31 for a pretrial conference, also names AOL as a defendant for allowing the alleged harassment to take place.

Well there are plenty of people who like to f w/ other people via the internet, many of whom I'm sure would never have the "guts" to do so face to face. Some people really seem to enjoy it wholeheartedly.

At what point does it cross a line? I think it's an interesting question.

I think you would have to parallel the limited, yet established law regarding stalking. When does a fan (legal) become a stalker (illegal)? Probably based on an analysis of multiple factors - which does not always lead to the most consistent set of conclusions.

yeah, not appropriate, even if you are joking. In fact, even less appropriate in that case.

some people have not been around long enough to remember Joel's anti-nazi/hitler statement.

References like that aren't funny!

Well, I'm quite confident that financeguy isn't a nazi.

Where's Joel's statement?

I know he's not a nazi but here's the thread. Someone decided to derail it with prolife/prochoice arguements though.
