Don't past Go, don't collect $200!

Yes my friends, in America it is now illegal to annoy online unless you disclose your personal information, the one thing most of us hide online.... our real names >:(

Of course, it is a stupid law.

QuoteAnnoying someone via the Internet is now a federal crime.

It's no joke. Last Thursday, President Bush signed into law a prohibition on posting annoying Web messages or sending annoying e-mail messages without disclosing your true identity.

In other words, it's OK to flame someone on a mailing list or in a blog as long as you do it under your real name. Thank Congress for small favors, I guess.,+go+to+jail/2010-1028_3-6022491.html


Wow, I'm sure we'll see some great lawsuits out of this one.  Let's face it, that's the American Way!


That's true, unfortunate, but true :(
