    Looking back at this thread, it's amazing how little of what you said actual addresses whether you support this proposed law or not. This is the first you've said that indicates that you do not. Your previous comments indicated that you supported, if not this specific proposal, at least the principles upon which it is based.

    all internet forums or websites where folks become members and post comments, must get a copy of ones driver's license, that can be verified.

    that way, if a member actually does engage in stalking/threats, that forum can be contacted by the police to get the person's name & address.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    an argument can be made for both anonymous & unanonymous posting.

    i think as long as the police have a reliable way to track down criminals/stalkers, basic anonymity while posting should be ok.

    Devil's Advocate proposition:

    What if real ID-required confirmation were required to sign up for posting, but once done you were publicly allowed to post anonymously?
    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.

    Equally stupid.

    Not to mention ****ing impossible. Do New York lawmakers even know how the internet works?

    (hint: no. no they don't)

    It's barely even possible to regulate the internet at a Federal level. It's impossible to do it at a state level.

    Terrible idea. Also a losing battle, constitutionally speaking.

    They aren't the first, nor will they be the last. The problem is that they're mostly old people with little to no real computer knowledge. Sure, they can probably surf the internet and send out emails, write up memos, etc, but they haven't the foggiest idea how the whole deal actually works.
