    Cyberbullying? That is so 3 weeks ago. I'm onto cyber flashing now. I've already hit 23 other sites with the pics, now wait here guys while I upload a picture of my taint and nuts for you all to view and cherish as well.

    However, if this law passes in the New York State Legislaure [sic] (not New York City as someone suggested), I will become unanonymous.
    If you agree with this proposed law, why do you not, in good faith, act in accordance with it even without any such law in effect?

    How can anyone take you seriously in supporting a law compelling from others against their will what you will not willingly do?


    And for the record, “Bob Blaylock” is my actual name. Well, to be pedantic, my true, full, legal name is “Robert Wells Blaylock”, but everyone who knows me knows me as “Bob Blaylock”.

    I wonder that as well. In a similar vein, I have always wondered how countries like France could put pressure on companies like eBay for selling Nazi memorabilia and essentially force them not to within France only. I presumed at the time that eBay did not have a literal physical in France, though maybe they do.

    I suspect the answer for France/eBay would be similar in this case.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I'm certainly not in favor of this bill simply because the fact that you are anonymous on the internet is one of the major pulls and forces of it. On the Internet you can be anyone you want to be, for good or bad reasons.

    With all these new internet regulation bills that are coming forward im rather worried about what the state of the internet will become if many of these succed in passing.

    So what?

    I have no problem with anyone knowing such things about me. I'll prove it right now.

    Really? Where? The only recollection I have of any such threats being made on this forum, in which you were involved, you were the one making the threats. I guess that's easier to do when you think you're doing so anonymously.

    I think the proposed law is a very bad idea, and I think if it passes, it will be struck down in the courts as blatantly unconstitutional. But I'm not afraid or ashamed to let my opinions and views be associated with my true identity, and don't feel a need to express them anonymously.

    If you think that the proposed law is a good idea, then it is hypocritical of you not to voluntarily comply with what it would require, if enacted.

    so what? I don't want some psychopath hunting me down and shooting me dead. That's why I don't reveal my name, address, photo, or phone number.

    I already once had some obsessive asshole with a hard-on for me, stalk me on the internet, looking through to see which forums I participate in, and then post very personal stuff about me...along with two photos of me.

    And now that I have had suggestions of deadly violence be done against me, I have NO intention of letting folks know who I am or where I am, unless the law requires it.

    It seems to me that you've made some good arguments against the proposed law that you support. But I think my point stands. You support a proposed law that would compel others to do that which you will not voluntarily do. This is hypocritical. If you think that you have good reasons for remaining anonymous, and if you think you should be allowed to do so, then where do you get off suggesting that others not be allowed this?
