Maybe Let's Make It Illegal To Be Annoying Online
By Mary Beth Quirk on April 6, 2012 11:00 AM



If it annoys you to no end that people write LOL when they are doing no such thing or still insist on overusing exclamation points in emails, you might want to move to Arizona. The state is considering a bill that would make it a criminal offense to be annoying on the Internet.

The Associated Press says the bill is a bi-partisan one that is on its way to Governor Jan Brewer's desk, and is an update to telephone harassment and stalking laws. It adds in computer and smartphone technology, and would ostensibly protect victims of online stalking, harassment and likely, bullying. Many cases may have been dismissed because the law hasn't kept up with technology.

"There's a bona fide need to protect people from one-on-one harassment," said Rep. Vic Williams, a Republican, who has been a key supporter of the bill.

Of course, this whole situation could wheel wildly out of control pretty darn fast, say the bill's opponents. The thing about free speech is that it's not a crime to say what you want, even if it annoys or offends someone. The bill's sponsor Rep. Tim Vogt said, however, that the language in the bill would be updated to make sure that it's all copacetic.

"This is not meant to affect constitutionally protected free speech or activity or speech authorized by law," Vogt said.

If it's left as is, the bill would get you in trouble for speaking in satire, political debate or trash talking. That would not work for this site.

Somebody is butthurt.

They (local talk radio, WGN) were talking about ridiculous bans or attempted bans in the U.S. right now.

Some place in N.Y. is trying to ban ice cream trucks. They interviewed some of the people in support of it, and it basically went something like "Everytime the truck comes around my child throws a temper tantrum when I won't buy them ice cream. I shouldn't have to argue with my child every day of the summer just so someone can earn a living"



Wow... Just wow. Definition of the "ME!" culture. And parents who let their kids play boss.

Your post offended me. I agree with it, but it was not in keeping with the theme of flaming everyone marathon so you need to be banned from the interwebz. Calling the guberment now.

That's what you get for being unemployed or part of the 1% elitist assholes - please apply insult that is most appropriate.

Dont worry the bill has been stopped. Even if it was signed, the courts wouldn't put up with it for long.

don't worry, the courts said you can be strip-searched for posting that.

no kidding........talk about more stupidity from the SCOTUS.

Correct me if I'm wrong, since I've been away for a while, but isn't the strip-search ruling only for people who get taken into incarceration?

Granted, that isn't comforting to me.......since you can go to jail for just about anything these days. One of the litmus test examples, for this decision, was a guy who got taken to jail after his wife was speeding, because he had an unpaid parking ticket (which they later found out he paid). Another was for a guy who violated a leash law violation, had a warrant, and got hauled into jail and strip searched.

Scary times.......scary times indeed.

This country is devolving into a mass of fascist shit way too quickly.

I don't know why, but I feel Blue78 fully supports this law. Meanwhile Questor and Napir would end up doing time for trolling and re-trolling giving them a chance to shank each other in prison.... which would not happen because I am certain doing time for internet trolling earns you a sign that says "Can I be your bitch" the second you hit gen-pop.

In my experience, most people are aspiring authoritarian tyrants.

Either socially, economically, or both.........

There is a very valid reason for our current level of entitlement mindset in this country/world. It is everywhere we look because it is supported by everything that the government does. It is supported by everything that our government does, because it is exactly what our electorate so desperately desires.

The average person (not just American) really does believe, with all of their heart, that they are somewhat owed, in some form or another, to something you have, something you know, your time, or at the very least want to control and constrain your individualistic ability to make conscious choices.

It's apparently who we are as a species and is all but ingrained into our DNA. The second our ancestors and ancient hominids obtained the ability to transcend beyond basic instinctual reactions, into having conscious thought, and an ability to think........most of us have chosen to only use these newfound powers of deductive reasoning to force our influence and control over everyone else around us.

That's why if people often seem to be self absorbed, sanctimonious and selfish.......it is because they are.

People have to occasionally learn to look outside of them self in order to ever obtain a perspective that involves something more than just their immediate, self gratifying, belief system.

But most will never bother to make the time for that........

Same here.......If I couldn't use satire, ridicule, and incessant irritation to lambaste imbeciles into confronting their blatant intellectual shortcomings I wouldn't even need to own a keyboard.

What a bunch of dangerous, jackboot, dipshits these politicians are.
