Kentucky Lawmaker Wants to Make Anonymous Internet Posting Illegal

By Kellie Wilson

Kentucky Representative Tim Couch filed a bill this week to make anonymous posting online illegal. The bill would require anyone who contributes to a website to register their real name, address and e-mail address with that site.   Their full name would be used anytime a comment is posted.

If the bill becomes law, the website operator would have to pay if someone was allowed to post anonymously on their site. The fine would be five-hundred dollars for a first offense and one-thousand dollars for each offense after that.

Representative Couch says he filed the bill in hopes of cutting down on online bullying. He says that has especially been a problem in his Eastern Kentucky district.

“Plus, I fucking hate that Dr. Gonzo bastard, and all the other dicks who post at a certain Bolivia-based website currently polluting the series of tubes

Representative Couch says enforcing this bill if it became law would be a challenge, due to the fact that the First Amendment has not yet been formally suspended by the fascist in chief, Dick “Dick” Cheney.
