Yep! Annoying someone via the Internet is now a federal crime.

How many posters here at Allstocks are now breaking the law?

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.

This ridiculous prohibition, which would likely imperil much of Usenet, is buried in the so-called Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act. Criminal penalties include stiff fines and two years in prison.

I guess since I always used my real name I can continue being annoying with no worries.

We have had more personal liberties taken away in the last 5 years then in the entire history of the US. And the sad thing about it is many people thinks it's for our on good.

All that says is that spending billions of dollars buying ads and "spokes persons" to make that claim, anyone can be "taught" to believe white is black and wrong is right and republicans tell the truth.

DWE should be getting a call soon for posting...

"If You're Looking For Chevrolet El Caminos in MINT CONDITION, Look Here!!!"

...sixty-nine times!

That would rank high on any sane person's list of annoying posts.
