Crazed online vengeance in the extreme

Amazing how much damage one person can wreak. And that it was so hard to trace, so hard to prove, so hard to stop.

A Vast Web of Vengeance Outrageous lies destroyed Guy Babcockʼs online reputation.
When he went hunting for their source, what he discovered was worse than he could have imagined.


By Kashmir Hill

Mr. Babcock, 59, was not a thief, a fraudster or a pedophile. “I remember being in complete shock,” he said. “Why would someone do this? Who could it possibly be? Who would be so angry?” “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
