Anonymous Web Posting Illegal?

Mon Mar 10, 2008 4:56 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.

Would only affect Kentucky, but sure would have some interesting repercussions.

What possible benefit would this have? Way to stifle the 1st Amendment their a-hole.

Probably a stodgy old bastard who can't operate his computer or surf the 'Interweb' by himself....

Don't get too upset about this. 1st of all, there's a snowball's chance in hell of it actually becoming law. 2nd, how are you going to enforce a law like this in a practical sense? That's right, it's impossible. Just like the big scare over taxing e-mail's, there are just too many ways around it.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.
