    The bill would require a web administrator to ?upon request remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate.? By ?web site,? the bill means just what it seems to: Any New York-based website, including ?social networks, blogs forums, message boards or any other discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. What's your views on this anyone think it could happen?

    This will never happen. It is also impossible to ever enforce, and would bring all commenting to an end at once. Not to mention, it would bring legitimate threats to peoples doorsteps for interacting online. It just goes to show how tyrannical the government is attempting to become. This idea however, is 100% impossible.

    The average age of the dinosaurs who draft these internet bills is like 65 years old. They don't understand shit about how the internet works, luckily the more light these proposals see the faster tech savvy people in gov't shut them down because of sheer impracticality.
