While I think we have too many lawyers as legislators, you'd think that passing familiarity with consitution would be basic job requirement.

In 1997 the Supreme court in the Communication Decency Act (ACLU vs Reno) struck down the CDA. The last paragraph said it all

Quote:

We find this argument singularly unpersuasive. The dramatic expansion of this new marketplace of ideas contradicts the factual basis of this contention. The record demonstrates that the growth of the Internet has been and continues to be phenomenal. As a matter of constitutional tradition, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, we presume that governmental regulation of the content of speech is more likely to interfere with the free exchange of ideas than to encourage it. The interest in encouraging freedom of expression in a democratic society outweighs any theoretical but unproven benefit of censorship. For the foregoing reasons, the judgment of the district court is affirmed.

The guy says it's to discourage "online bullying." Instead I guess it's supposed to encourage stalking people you disagree with, since you know their name and address.

I wonder if this brainiac has thought about what this would do to online support groups for recovering addicts and sexual assault victims, among others. For folks like these, having an anonymous online support group can be a lifeline.

Or people who have or want to retire early....

My real name is Fred Smith. I am here in spirit only.

Sigh. Another moron legislator wanting to "make his point" with an impossible-to-enforce and constitutionally invalid law.
