Online Community

Recently in South Korea a woman let her dog do its business in the subway and didn't clean up after it. When confronted by other commuters, she apparently refused to do anything about it and got angry. So, the people around her took pictures and posted them on a popular web site. Details about her soon followed.

While this sort of publicly expressed disapproval will probably encourage others to pick up after their pooches, the Post rightly raises the question of how far this can go.
