    The "Cyberbullying Prevention Act", HR 1966, threatens Americans' 1st Amendment right to speak their opinions freely through e-mail, social networking sites, blogging, YouTube, on the airwaves, or other electronic means. If what you say has the has the potential to cause "emotional distress" (read: offends them in any way), you could face fines or jail, or both!

    Kiss USMB goodbye if this passes...

    Hopefully USMB's server is "out of the country" ... since the international laws have no threat of this yet. Even then, this is technically and "adults only" site, so luckily it will likely be untouched. But it's still a stupid and really bad idea, because even if we are untouched by this one ... the question becomes "when will they legislate some really stupid law that will?"

    The problem with amendments, they invoke change and can therefore be changed ... or even ignored. It doesn't matter, look at the FCC for a great example of ignoring the second.
