    I hope so. I don't see how you can bully an anonymous internet posting. I could see it on a site like Facebook where they taunt real people who use their own name, photos, address, email & other personal info. A sight like USMB is anonymous to protect posters from bullies.

    We must not lose our rights simply because a few people are so incapable of handling life that they commit suicide. That justification will never end and we will be nothing but serfs.

    If the idiot R who introduced this idiot bill would like to be held responsible for the inevitable fall out ...

    Never mind. I'm sure he would find some way to blame others.

    This won't happen but we really do need to keep the damn politicians out of the Internet.

    About the poor child, that is beyond sad but not related to this bill. You really can't compare the ignorant name calling and bullying done by seven year olds to the ignorant name calling and bullying done but adults on a message board.

    Nonetheless, we would all be better for it if we could remember there is a human being behind the posted words. That won't be happening anytime soon either because we are all just flawed human beings.
