It is a criminal act to impersonate another online without their consent "for purposes of harming, intimidating, threatening, or defrauding" anyone--not just the person being impersonated. Doing so is punishable by a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail. You can also be sued for any harm you cause in the course of the impersonation. In short, make sure the identity you establish here is your own.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Identityhttp://daviswiki.org/Identity2010-12-01 14:18:12TomGarbersonSmall but important addition, IMO. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Identity<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 12: </td> <td> Line 12: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> When you choose not to use your offline identity, you make the choice ''not to be known''.
