    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.

    Bad idea. Free speech and all that. Speaking anonymously is part of that freedom.

    New York is a hot competitor with California to see who can make the biggest Nanny State society. I assume that that's what the people want.

    Cradle to grave security - that's the American way.

    Cyberbullying. Which can be a problem, sure, but it's like trying to swat a fly with a hammer. It's way overkill.

    I suppose. Maybe I just don't see cyberbullying as a serious problem. Barely even a small one.

    It's the currently trendy problem. And, by God, our politicians have to "save" us from all our problems, real or imagined.
