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.jah
Jah,Yes, I was going to post on this, but you beat me to it. As much as I dislike rude comments on my blog from anonymous posters, I think we can all handle this all by ourselves without the government dictating to us how we have to do it.Among other things, I am a lobbyist, and I happen to know that that bill isn't going anywhere.
Getting back to the original post, I think California should find a balance between ensuring the children are properly educated and the parents preferences, and the ISP programs seemed very reasonable (although I would prefer that the supervising body was a public school).
