Annoying people on-line is now a crime...
Looks like the Americans amongst us are in for some interesting times on-line.
The US congress has just signed a bill that makes anonymously annoying people on-line illegal.
So better start posting under your real names (and addresses) or the thought police will send you to goal for two years.
I must warn you all that I have a very, very low threshold for annoyance...
and these stupid laws are really annoying me.
"Whoever...utilizes any device or software that can be used to originate telecommunications or other types of communications that are transmitted, in whole or in part, by the Internet... without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any person...who receives the communications...shall be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."
