This is all real.  :)

Which makes for a fascinating discussion aboout "Performance Spaces". The digital arena is a legitimate performance space and many artists are exploring ways of utilising it. I'd get the lawyers onto that one.

That would be a very interesting discussion. I hadn't really thought of it that way. You might have discovered a nice loophole. Quick! Everyone call themselves performance artists, and we're straight!  :)

There is more than ample evidence that online personas and identification are often fabricated. You should set up decoys if you're doing dirt. Say, for instance, you are cheating on your wife. Set up mock accounts on forums, messengers and e-mail addresses. Interact with them as sexual partners, drug dealers, arms dealers, alien hybrid spies and cult leaders. When one is discovered, reveal the extent of your performance art.

That's what I used to do when I was the Surgeon General of the Mongolian Secret Service.

It's a legal gray area though, isn't it? I mean, you could do a performance in a public area that involves you screaming "FIRE!" and it would still be illegal, fabricated or not.

The specific exception refers to creating a situation in which it is likely that someone will be harmed. If the characters claim something catastrophic is about to happen... or make threats, that's a different situation. If I made a character on the internet, and that character spoke freely of drug deals and seedy sexual encounters, no one would have a legal leg to stand on in a divorce case or a narcotics case. We'd have to arrest half the rappers in America.

I was all ready to argue until the rappers comment. Now I'm stuck.

Why...why don't they do that. Summabitch.

I sold a kilo of heroin to five twelve year olds in a treehouse once. Four were boys. One was a girl. I killed and ate her.

The expected response would be "photos or it didn't happen."

If I wasn't absolutely photoshop illiterate, I would make that happen.
