So you're saying that the indictment (which as described does not  
constitute a conviction and therefore is not case law) is relevant if  
someone creates an identity for the purpose of deluding others, uses  
it to inflict emotional distress, and the result is the suicide of a  
member of the discussion forum - and the bully lives in the City of  
Dardenne Prairie or more generally the State of Missouri, which have  
enacted statutes since the girl's death. Is that correct?

I don't plan to comment further in this thread. In fact, had you and  
Philip not replied, I would not have been aware of it. To my mind, my  
stance is a very appropriate one.
