YIKES! Anonymous Posting Illegeal?!?

Quote:

The bill would require anyone who contributes to a website to register their real name, address and e-mail address with that site.
Their full name would be used anytime a comment is posted.

If the bill becomes law, the website operator would have to pay if someone was allowed to post anonymously on their site.

The fine would be five-hundred dollars for a first offense and one-thousand dollars for each offense after that.

I am in deep disguise. In real life I am MUCH younger, more beautiful, and sexier than my avatar. I would tell you my name but my mother would ground me for life if I did.

With me, it's what you see, is what you get. No holding back. Full speed ahead. Take it or leave it. Laying it on the line.

Hey! That's not a sneaky Missoula joke is it? I'm really sensitive about that sort of thing. My lawyer will be in touch.



And this will make us all safer?

I think we're seeing the effects of big business finally figuring out they cant screw a customer like they did 15+ years ago and have them only tell ten people.

They're looking for someone to sue!

Or its an initial push to have a hard "net identity" to go along with your national ID card, implant, and tattooed barcode/skynet ID...

My guess is it won't matter what the US does to mandate identity ... we go anonymous from over seas sites.

I am certianly not interested in the solicitations - at best - or identity theft that would result from this bill.

The lawmaker was severely whipped in a net argument and wants to know who to hold a grudge against.

Sounds like that Kentucky lawmaker got trolled up on the internet for the first time, and the bill is his temper tantrum.
