A new federal law states that when you annoy someone on the Internet, you must disclose your identity. Here’s the relevant language.
“Whoever…utilizes any device or software that can be used to originate telecommunications or other types of communications that are transmitted, in whole or in part, by the Internet… without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any person…who receives the communications…shall be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”
Hmm… I wonder how enforceable this is, and how it’ll change the face of the internet? Telephone use? Talk Radio?
The answer to my ESP poll was Wavy Lines. I suspect there may’ve been some circle after image bleed over due to the moon-talk and icon. Very interesting… most people knew that I’d go with wavy lines. Fully 40% of people answering got it right, as well as 33% getting the circle vibe. Spiffy that folks know me that well, give a one in five chance to get it right.
Let’s try it again – I’m looking at an image, and focusing on it… which one is it?
The problem with LJ:
We all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about.
Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don’t know about you.
Thanks Ilene for the two icons!
