proposed Kentucky law would make anonymous posting illegal

Kentucky legislature member Tim Couch recently proposed Kentucky House Bill 775 which would make it illegal for Kentucky hosted websites to allow anonymous posting. If you’re bored, read the bill. It’s short. It pretends as though by forcing Kentucky-based websites to collect this information, the world will be a safer place.

Ludicrous. I wrote to Tim Couch (tim.couch@lrc.ky.gov) and let him know how badly this bill reflected on his understanding of the internet. I doubt he’ll ever read it, but at least I spoke my piece.

  1. But how will the tubes work if we can’t track people?!?!?

  2. Honestly, I pay very little attention to the state government. I get shouted down at the polls, anyway.
