+ - Japanese police charge 2channel founder over forum posts->

identity0 writes: According to Japan Probe, Hiroyuki Nishimura, the founder of 2ch.net, has been charged with drug offenses by Japanese police over a forum post made on 2ch in 2010. He is not even accused of making the post, but of failure to have moderators delete it. The post apparently discussed drugs. 2ch.net (also called 2channel) is Japan's biggest forum, with over a million posts a day, of which the post in question was one. The site inspired image board 2chan.net(but is not directly related to it), which spawned copycat English site 4chan.net. More info at Slashdot Japan if you can read Japanese.
