SayUncle � The end of blogs?

I've posted before about the annoying habits of some people who indulge in blog-spamming.

This is something different.

As of last week, if you write an annoying, ANONYMOUS comment, you're subject to fines and who-knows-what-else.

That's right, it's a federal crime to write annoying anonymous comments with the intent to . . . well, annoy someone.

Three questions:
  1. What's "annoying", and is it possible to write Anything that won't be Annoying to Somebody?
  2. Who's going to turn in an "annoying" commenter to the feds?
  3. If they're anonymous, how ya gonna catch 'em?
Just one more justification for Congress Control.
