Lawmaker Wants to Make Anonymous Internet Posting Illegal

A Kentucky lawmaker has proposed a bill that would make it illegal to post content anonymously on the internet. The law would require internet users to register their real names, addresses, and emails with a website, before they contribute. Full names would then be used to identify individual content. The lawmaker backing the bill said it would cut down on "online bullying."

This sounds like unnecessary hand holding to me. Responsible websites are free to set up rules for posting, and sensitive web surfers can avoid disrespectful forums. Plus, how exactly would Kentucky enforce the state's law, which would fine websites up to $1,000 for each offense? The internet doesn't exactly follow state boundaries. Do you think lawmakers should meddle in online etiquette?
