Le Chat Chat Spat

A SYDNEY man lost his job after an argument about domestic cats in a web chat room drew a vicious response from an incensed lawyer.
News Limited reports that a Queensland lawyer by the name of Tony Smith tracked the IP address of the Sydney cat lover's PC to his workplace and dobbed him in to his employer.

Funnily enough he didn't much like it when he was tracked down by the reporter:

The Sunday Telegraph e-mailed Mr Smith for comment. Mr Smith replied that if the reporter made good on "his apparent threat" to track him down, he would "give him, and his employers, a guided tour of the Queensland anti-stalking legislation".
