Post: new law against annoying internet messages?
Posted by Carol on 1/13/06
Does anyone know anything about a provision of HR 3402
(Violence Against Women Act)signed into law last week that
penalizes sending "annoying" e-mail messages without
disclosing the sender's true identity? I have read
references to it on other sites, but have no idea what the
provision actually says. I actually tried looking at the
bill but couldn't find it before my eyes glazed over.
Anyone know? I am wondering what the affect would be on
sites like this. Is everyone who engages in a flame war
now guilty of a federal crime? any thoughts? Who would
report? Who would prosecute? Or is it just a bunch of
mularky, there is no such provision?
