Google has complied with a court order to identify, to the best of the company's ability, a blogger who created a website Skanks in NYC devoted to insulting a former cover girl. The model, Liskula Cohen, obtained the IP address and the email address of her accuser yesterday and was able to deduce her enemy's identity. Appearing on Good Morning America today, Cohen said the blogger is a vague acquaintance: "Thank God it was her… she's an irrelevant person in my life. She's just somebody that, whenever I would go out to a restaurant, to a party in New York City… She was just that girl that was always there." Perhaps the pot has been calling the kettle skank all along?

She called the woman immediately, and Cohen actually apologized for anything she might have done to spark the skankusations, which included bilious descriptions of Cohen as a "psychotic, lying, whoring ... skank ... Desperation seeps from her soul, if she even has one." But the blogger denied any involvement in Skanks in NYC (which has since been taken down) and insisted they only speak to each other in the presence of their attorneys. The Post, for what it's worth, published her email address, and reports that " did not return an e-mail for comment."

Cohen's planning a defamation suit against the blogger and says the website damaged her career. But the lawsuit isn't "to make money. We're in it because something was done that was wrong." Her lawyer believes the court's decision sends a message that the Internet is no longer a safe harbor of defamatory language and predicts, "It will change the way some people will act on the Internet." Any thoughts on that, Gothamist commenters?
