Rosemary Port Who Blogged For Skanks in NYC Is Suing Google For Revealing Her Identity

Bad For Women? Online Name-Calling and Lawsuits

This is one of the most childish stories I've read in a while.

Rosemary Port, who used to blog anonymously for "Skanks in NYC," riled up a fellow fashionista, model Liskula Cohen, by calling her an "old hag," a "ho," a "skank," and a "lying psychotic whore." (You can't say Port doesn't know how to hurl insults!)

Why is there bad blood between the women? They hang out in the same fashion circles — Port is a Fashion Institute of Technology student, Liskula a model — and apparently Liskula badmouthed Port to an ex-boyfriend once. (How old are these people, you ask? Port is 29 and Liskula is 37.)

Cohen claims the site hurt her reputation and pressured Google to reveal the "Skanks in NYC" writer. (Now, Port is suing Google for $15 million for invasion of privacy.) "By going to the press," says Port, "she defamed herself. Before her suit, there were probably two hits on my Web site: One from me looking at it, and one from her looking at it."

I'm pretty embarrassed for both of them and order a time out during which they both should retreat to a corner and sit until they can behave. What do you think — are these two too old for this nonsense?

Skank is a subjective term. I mean some people think wearing certain lip colors can make one skanky.

I live in NYC. everyone here knows this is an issue between two pathetic women who have never heard anyone tell them "no", and are doing absurd things to be right.

Skanks in NYC ... mmm what a classy name. The 37-year-old should maybe look to herself first when calling someone a "lying psychotic whore".

If one girl wants to call another girl a skank then let her but its childish to create a blog about it. I could technically sue my boyfriend's ex-girlfriend for bad mouthing me in her online blog but I have more important things to do than worry about some delusional bitchy girl.

Actually, I'm all for it. If someone creates a website just to mock and insult another person, it's bullying and harassment. Pure and simple. Do both these women suck? sure. But if you look at a case like Megan Meier, one never knows the outcome, and it could be tragic. Liskula Cohen might be considered a fame whore; but if she was one of the more unstable types (and victims of bullies often are) who knows what else could have happened.

This whole incident is stupid. I hate the anonymity the internet breeds because as a society we obviously are not responsible enough to choose our words with integrity. I wish people could use the common sense they most likely came into this world with when deciding what to write online.

Everyone should be above this kind of behavior, no matter how old they are. It's just so unnecessary. There are many ways to get your point across without having to name call.
