Virginia declares internet to have near omnipotent power

The Guys are all centered in the state of Virginia. Due to the state’s motto, this might make us lovers.

… That came out wrong.

Regardless, thanks to a new ruling by the state’s Supreme Court, Virginia now might also be for internet trolls. Thanks in part to a court case involving a homeowner and a contractor (as it was the Supreme Court that decided to reverse the original ruling), users of Yelp and other such websites can now post their reviews of businesses, no matter how factual they may or may not be … for now, at least. The burden of proof is currently on the impugned business, as they must prove that said review is libelous in order to have it censored rather than a little more truthful than they’d like.

Upset with the level of service you were given? To the internet machine!
