Kentucky Lawmaker Wants to Make Anonymous Internet Posting Illegal
By Kellie Wilson
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.
Representative Couch says he filed the bill in hopes of cutting down on online bullying. He says that has especially been a problem in his Eastern Kentucky district.
Action News 36 asked people what they thought about the bill.
Some said they felt it was a violation of First Amendment rights. Others say it is a good tool toward eliminating online harassment.
Represntative Couch says enforcing this bill if it became law would be a challenge.
The excuse for creating this bill is "online bullying", but we all know who this bill is really aimed at...anyone who opposes the US Government!
And this comes at a time when the NSA just recently increased its efforts on domestic spying via phone and internet communications.
Screw the government, keep posting anonymously (its your right) and if they actually make this a law, I'll stop paying taxes and you should too!
