Move to make anonymous posting illegal

In Kentucky


There
are moves in Kentucky, a state more famous for fried chicken, to make anonymous posting online illegal.

Kentucky Representative Tim Couch has filed a bill to make anyone who contributes to a Website to register their real name, address and e-mail address with that site. Everytime they post their full name will be used on a comment. Any Website website operator would have to pay if someone was allowed to post anonymously on their site.

The big idea is to cut down the amount of online bullying which occurs on the Internet. Of course, it only applies to sites based in Kentucky, which we would not have thought included that many.

Representative Couch admits enforcing this bill if it became law would be a bit tricky and we couldn't agree more.
