Issue: Create an e-annoyance, go to jail: Annoying someone via the Internet is now a federal crime/Declan McCullagh, MSN Tech & Gadgets

Reporter Declan McCullagh: "It's no joke. Last Thursday, President Bush signed into law a prohibition on posting annoying Web messages or sending annoying e-mail messages without disclosing your true identity. In other words, it's OK to flame someone on a mailing list or in a blog as long as you do it under your real name. Thank Congress for small favors, I guess."

DFO: Scary.

Question: Would this affect the way you blog or comment?

Hat Tip: Family Phil
