I think I’d be all for this.
The bill, called the Internet Posting Removal Act, is sponsored by Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein. It states that a “web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless the 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.”
I don’t know how many times, mostly on YouTube and/or Twitter, have I been bitched out by some anonymous punk or even tween hiding behind an alias. While many will call this an invasion of privacy and possible squelching of free speech, I still believe if you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, shut the fuck up.
