Note from Trial Against The Pirate Bay:
“When did you meet [fellow defendant Gottfrid] for the first time IRL?” asked the Prosecutor.
“We do not use the expression IRL,” said Peter, “we use AFK.”
“IRL?” questioned the judge.
“In Real Life,” the Prosecutor explained to the judge.
“We do not use that expression,” Peter noted. “Everything is in real life. We use AFKâ€”Away From Keyboard.”
“Well,” said Roswall. “It seems I am a little bit out of date.”
While this may have been brought up as a way of building on the ignorances commonly shown by prosecutors against filesharers, I thought it was a poignant note about interactions on the web.
