Anonymous Comments Illegal?

This would be bad news for the SPI Forum!!

Radley Balko reports

Kentucky Representative Tim Couch filed a bill this week to make anonymous posting online illegal.

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.
