What is more scary is a social media post can be legally binding. It would be very hard to defend against if this was not targeted high profile people as an organized attack, but instead targeted individual people in disorganized individual attacks.

I can't think of what could happen if this was used to blackmail, or worse to calumniate people. It is then quite possible to send someone to jail, or shut their voice down.
