New York Legislation Would Ban Anonymous Online Speech

Wired: Did you hear the one about the New York state lawmakers who forgot about the First Amendment in the name of combating cyberbullying and “baseless political attacks”?

Proposed legislation in both chambers would require New York-based websites, such as blogs and newspapers, to “remove any comments posted on his or her website by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post.”

The story is too old to be commented.

I actually support cyberbullying. kids today are too soft and spoiled.
blocking this will cause them to ask for more reaching higher and higher to block more freedoms.

I was a victim of bullying and then I beat up my oppressors and counter bullied them
and learned how to control the witty humor that I have today.
