Would it affect sock puppets or shills posting from warehouse locations?

Re: Proposed legislation in NY would remove anonymous postings on websites.
after careful reading

i would like to clarify what this bill means.

it does not ban or prevent anonymous postings.

but if the website administrator is based in NY then they will have to remove specific anonymous posts on request from their website.

nice to know
 Quoting: WindyMind


it gets worse the post will always be classed as anonymous postser unless you provide IP ADDRESS, LEGAL NAME, AND HOME ADDRESS to the isp and attaching your name to the post itself at the time of posting.

but again only where site admins are mebers of THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2577409


If that's the case. those NY sites will be online ghost towns.

Proposed legislation in both chambers would require New York-based websites, such as blogs and newspapers, to "remove any comments posted on his or her website by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post."

Republican Assemblyman Jim Conte said the legislation would cut down on "mean-spirited and baseless political attacks"

NYS is going after those big bag cyber bullies

Heres the bill:

Re: Proposed legislation in NY would remove anonymous postings on websites.
Dumbasses that propose these things have no clue how difficult it would be to enforce.

You gonna make every website that comes through a new york isp server to a ny customer install special software to prevent it?

Or are they going to form an internet police force to track down anonymous posters and cite them for posting anonymously? Fine them? Make them appear in court?

Can you imagine what sort of infrastructure of software and personnel would be required to enforce such a law?

So how would glp or any other website be required to appear and function differently in ny state without them having to be somehow modified to comply?

The dumbshits that come up with this shit obviously don't use the internet themselves.

Think of the bureaucracy Andrew Cuomo would get to implement "for our own good" if he can get this.

Ever since he became governor there has been a series of these "surprise attacks" against the non-NWO aspects of NY State. Gay marriage was the first, then making our divorce laws the same as everyone else's, now this. Great catch by OP, maybe it will help STOP this one. I'm writing my NY legislators telling them to vote against it.

Thanks, OP!

This shit started when Cuomo became governor. We had no choice. His Republican opponent self-destructed and so it was unavoidable. He talks of great things, and behind our backs he does things like this.

Think how this will help Cuomo get reelected! The opposition would be primarily in-state, and those opponents would be constrained in their speech.

If someone says something offensive, you need verified ID next to the post, or it'll be deleted.

Which means political opinions in NY would be effectively squashed.

Edit: doesn't even need to be offensive...

Maybe it's a "partnership" with Joe Lieberman of Connecticut. CT is losing jobs since so many hedge funds blew up and their taxes are as high as ours. This seems tailor-made to send IT jobs across the state line into CT (and NJ).
