Good heavens. This is a horrible decision. The court could very well find the original poster in contempt for having failed to remove the posting, while simultaneously finding that the poster cannot compel the site to remove it. If the poster is under order to take it down, I hope there's an appeal demanding that the site be compelled to do so, or in the alternative, that the poster be immune from liability from the site's failure.
