i'm voting yes on this one....good find!
this law potentially emperils every single member of ats. in our current society of frivolous lawsuits, this legislation assures that if one person
gets their panties in a wad over the comments of another, there is a legal basis for a lawsuit, and further action afterwards by the federal
authorities. now, of course, federal officials are going to tell you that it would never be used in this manner, but do you really trust our current
judicial system to make the distinction between genuinely dangerous acts of stalking on the net, and someone's personal opinions about how the
government is run? i certainly dont.
as much as i vehemtly disagree with the bush-bashers, bible-bashers, and 9/11 conspiracy theorists on this site, they have every right to voice their
opinions. this bill is saying that they dont, unless they add their real world name to the post. this is unconstitutional to the extreme. forget
the fact that the US government is attempting to regulate how people of other nations use the net.
