    [SIZE="2"]Kentucky Lawmaker Wants to Make Anonymous Internet Posting Illegal[/SIZE]

    Wednesday, Mar 05, 2008 - 11:11 PM Updated: 12:40 PM

    Kentucky Representative Tim Couch filed a bill this week to make anonymous posting online illegal.

    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.

    Representative Couch says he filed the bill in hopes of cutting down on online bullying. He says that has especially been a problem in his Eastern Kentucky district.

    Action News 36 asked people what they thought about the bill.

    Some said they felt it was a violation of First Amendment rights. Others say it is a good tool toward eliminating online harassment.

    Represntative Couch says enforcing this bill if it became law would be a challenge.

    It's about time! Nothing like posting from the safety of your mom's basement.
    Btw, I am posting this from your mom's basement. (Not directed at anyone in particular.)

    There is no way this will happen. It would finish hundreds of websites if not thousands.

    And you think thats a consideration? I really doubt that lawmakers are overly concerned that some dorky gamer's blog is going to go out of business.

    If these politician jerkoffs wanted to really HELP anyone by trying to bend their
    obsolete ways of thinking and law around the 21st century, they'd go after the REAL problem on the internet - SPAM.

    SO you know why they don't?
    Hmmmmm?

    Little guess?

    Because the SPam industry is HUGE and puts money in their pockets.
    THAT'S why there's still spam.

    Message boards offer NOTHING to these politicians, so they don't care.
    Remember, folks. The politicians are NOT interested in helping YOU.

    Basically every website today offers a message board...I think gamer's blogs are insignificant compared to what is out there. I can't see people being anxious to provide the addresses everytime they speak on the internet. If this does in fact become law prepare for things to change drastically, and that will ruin a cash cow for many.

    If you ever want a wake up call, try having an ethnic name like mine and traveling anywhere in the States outside of NY metro area and California. I even had some scumbag NY State Trooper give me grief on my name when he stopped me in Upstate NY in my college days. There is just this insane level of prejudice and free speech violations that they mask under the banner of "conservatism".
