Let's hope it isn't fucked up yet.

The Internet Is Serious Business is a phrase used to remind those who have just been successfully trolled that being mocked on the Internet is, in fact, the end of the world. Common variations include, Internet... Serious Fucking Business, The Internet: Serious Business, Internet = Srs Business, SRS BIZNS and even just INTERNET!! Plural: The Internets Are Serious Businesses. The phrase is often used as the text of an image macro or to highlight the complexity of a heated debate in an internet forum.

James Robert Murphy, 38, of Columbia, South Carolina, was sentenced to 5 years of probation, 500 hours of community service, and more than $12,000 in restitution for two counts of Use of a Telecommunications Device (the internet) with Intent to Annoy, Abuse, Threaten or Harass.

Murphy was indicted in April 2004, for sending harassing emails to Seattle resident Joelle Ligon and to other employees of the City of Seattle. He pleaded guilty to two counts in June 2004. In sentencing Murphy, U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Zilly told Murphy he "...did not demonstrate the type of remorse he should under the circumstances."

In The Summer Of 2005, the internets was taken by storm by the serious business event known simply as "YOU FUCKING STOLE MY CLOUDSONG". This was an event in the game "Dark Age Of Camelot" where some nerd made numerous death-threats against a party of people who stole his rare item, a "Cloudsong". Was made popular by DeviantArt, but was mislabelled as "WOW is serious business".

On January 14, 2006, a new lawsuit came about when a "man" sued his internet buddies after he was made fun of in a chatroom. This is an excellent example that the internet is still SERIOUS FUCKING BUSINESS.

In July, 2007, US Navy Petty Officer Russell Tavares was sentenced to seven years in prison for driving 1,300 miles to burn down the trailer owned by someone who called him a "nerd" on the internets. SERIOUS BUSINESS INDEED!

She should not have been fucking around with Facebook.

On October 17, 2008 truck driver Wayne Forrester got jailed for life for stabbing his wife to death because she changed her Facebook status to single after they split up. SERIOUS AMOUNTS OF SERIOUS BUSINESS!!11oneoneone

Another example is Tracy Williams, a college lecturer who used a Yahoo group as a base for repeatedly hassling one Michael Keith Smith (a member of the UK Independence Party), discussing the Iraq War. He ended up suing her and winning £10,000, though whether or not this had something to do with Tracy's flagrant breaches of Godwin's Law remains unreported. Tracy obviously grossly underestimated the seriousness of the business in which she was engaging (or something). Likely originated on the General Mayhem forums.

Recently, Jake Brahm learned that the internet was still SERIOUS FUCKING BUSINESS after being arrested for copypasta, which is now apparently a criminal offense.
