    This decision could open the floodgates to everyone who makes a coment on the web. Lets say, online I called Tony Blair a murderer and deserves to die. He could then go to a court and ask a Judge to make my ISP to disclose my home details. Because he would say its a threat.

    People who trawl forums, even the Daily Mail one, think they are anonymous and can be as abusive as they like. Time they were brought to task. Hiding behind an IP is cowardly. Their victims have very little recourse.
