    Wow, that`s really bad. Why would I want people to know my full name and ADDRESS? What about the people under 18? Some pedophile could find out where a kid lives or something.

    No!

    This may be superficially about online bullying, but in reality it`s just a way of destroying privacy. Who would say anything if their full name was given out each time? Stating a view would put the person at risk of a physical attack, from anyone, with their name and address posted. That increases the danger, if anything, not decreases it.

    This is just one more way for the government to keep tabs on it`s citizens.

    THen we would have to deal with all the stalkers and murders finding us a lot easyer to. Besides what about privacy and I said already it could lead to less internet attacks but more physical ones.

    I`m totally down with not being able to post unless you give the website your info, as if you don`t trust the website, you just don`t post there. However, I am not ok with using my full name online.

    Heh.

    It`s only a breach of your first amendment rights if you`re too scared to say what you say publicly. ;)

    For those of you not paying attention: Only your name is public information, the rest is registered information. It`s not the same thing. Just like how you can give your Email address now on most sites but choose to hide it from others.

    The real problem with this is how bad websites are at it. "Please insert your address".
    Choose country: <Drop down menu> United Kingdom.
    State: Erm... I suppose... England?
    Enter your zip code: ..... well... I guess my postal address is closest to a zip code...
    "That is not a valid US zip code".


    I once tried to buy something off a website that let the delivery address be in Italy (yay), but then I couldn`t select Italy as the address on my card.

    Effectively "only people outside Italy may send things there".

    Yeah, real smart, government, just post our addresses and full names. Why don`t you just send the killers/rapists/et cetera right to our front doors?

    If someone can`t stand "internet bullying," get over it and get the hell off the internet if you`re that much of a pansy.

    Since they can`t enforce this bill ( no matter how hard they would try, they would just fail ) it will never pass.

    I can only picture how people would create fake accounts and hack other peoples profile just to learn where they live.

    Risk outweight the benefits.

    No, they can`t do that! Why should some guy in Kentucky get to decide I can`t post anonymously here in Scotland, just `cos I`m on an American website.

    And anonymity is a good thing, `cos if people know your name and stuff, online bullying could just get a whole lot worse, and you might end up with a stalker. Nobody wants everyone to know who they are!

    You can`t make laws like that about the internet, since so many countries are involved. Even if it becomes a law in Kentucky, it will never become a worldwide law, and Kentucky does not own the internet.

    It might stop Internet bullying but it would not help stopping identity theft and that sort of thing.

    :O But then everyone on World of Warcraft (or similar fantasy RP games) will have to give up their tough-sounding nicknames "Org Eater of Children" and admit their much less frightening real names "Myron B. Pennybottom" or whatever >.> that, it seems, would lead to more bullying.


    Awful jokes aside, I`d like to see this Kentucky bloke find my country on a map, never mind banning me from posting anonymously at home.

    I have been puting off creating an account here just because I was too lazy to click the few buttons, but I felt obliged to comment on this... This is just rediculous, this infringes on our 1st amendment, and is therefore unconstitutional. Which pretty much means it cant happen. And even if by some freak way it did, as stated above, people will just move their servers to overseas servers, thus eliminating the necessity of personal info. Which would still mean, internets-1,000,000,000 Gov`t-0

    lol, Phantom7 that`s such a stupid statement: "i do not do anything wrong so i don`t really mind".

    It`s not about be able to do wrong and get away with it, ti`s the fact that your name and address would be publicly available for anyone to find. Privacy is already a problem, this would make it even worst.

    Already did, unfortunately it died withing a minute.

    Also it wouldn`t effect the world, just servers in the U.S. Also companies would go bankrupt from having to having to have better servers. It takes up more memory, more bandwidth, all that.

    Haha! 1984, here we come!

    But seriously, folks. Everyone on here, with the exception of MAYBE Aric is an anonymous poster. Unless you give out your full name and identity that`s just what you are. This is what makes the internet so beautiful and useless. You can be anyone you want to be on the internet, from a 15 year old girl to a burly viking man and no one would ever be able to tell the difference. Even if this law goes through and we`re forced to have names online, there`s no reason we couldn`t just lie about it. They can`t change the way the internet works (especially not in other countries), and if they did they would have to create a special brand new internet for the US and it`s totalitarian gov`t. Maybe call it... Freedom-net, since the word freedom has somehow become synonymous with the destruction of personal liberties. The truth is, even if they made it where a victim of "internet bullying" were to phone in an attack, how would they know who did it? cont.

    With the advent of proxies and other such anonymous connection services, they would have no way of tracing the attack. But forget that. Even if they did, how would they deal with them? There are plenty of ways to misconstrue a comment on the internet as a personal attack, and there are plenty of crazy people on the internet who would make up false charges. And just how would we deal with the sheer number of people filling our jails just because they called someone a faggot in a chatroom? I mean, good lord, half of these people would be kids. The fact is, there`s no way this law would pass. No way in hell, in fact, because any self-respecting judge would see the implications of this idiocy and cut it at the bud.

    I guess those people warning children not to use their personal information are just going against the government, then.
