'Letting off steam' on blogs could get you a criminal record

This is not a work-related area, but it's possible scenario, if the work blogger is far from careful.

As reported by the BBC yesterday:

A blogger who "let off steam" about the way he was treated by police has been convicted of posting a grossly offensive and menacing message.

Gavin Brent, 24, from Holywell, Flintshire, was fined £150 with £364 costs by magistrates at Mold.

The court heard Brent had been charged with theft offences - which have yet to be dealt with - and posted a message about a police officer's new-born baby.

Magistrates said any reasonable person would find the comments menacing.
