Being an online asshole is now a federal crime

The federal government wants to keep you safe from anonymous trolls...

Here's what they've been working on when they weren't pissing on the Constitution ...

"Whoever...utilizes any device or software that can be used to originate telecommunications or other types of communications that are transmitted, in whole or in part, by the Internet... without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any person...who receives the communications...shall be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."

I'm sure that this is how we will eventually catch Osama.

Just wanted to give Tony Collett his due for bringing this to my attention. Thanks, Tony!
