Very Interesting, thanks for posting Angel!
I'm not sure this is a great thing as it could be taken to extremes. Honestly, about half the posters on USMB could be charged for cyberbullying under this bill. Think about it; am I wrong?
a solution in search of a problem
No you're not... This is a direct attack on the 1st.
I agree with Angel, it's a direct attack on the 1st Amend.. Don't give them an inch on this, they will take a mile ... probably more.
As for "bullying" ... people don't have to be online, nor do they have to read everything online. Real bullying is where there is no perceptible escape route, such as in a school where the students have no choice but to be there. I believe it's in the actual definition to.
I read the link, maybe I missed it, but did this Bill pass?
no, it's in committee where hopefully it will die.
If is passes say Bye Bye to message boards!
I wonder if it is more like the hate crimes act where in and of itself, you don't charge people with it rather you add it on as an automatic 10 year sentence in very severe cases of cruelty to others but it has to be proven first to be a hate crime.
At least that is how I understood it.
