I was reading around on news sites, and aparantly our lord and savior president bush signed a bill into law that makes it illegal to cuss out people on the internet, without them knowing your true idenity. I forget exactly where that link was as it was a few days ago. Anyone else heard anything about this?


From now on, I'm putting “Matthew Bojangles” on everything I do on the internet (its my real name), that way I'll cover all my bases.

Your real name is Mr. Bojangles? No way.

I had it legally changed in 2003, my id, my criminal record, and the place I used to rent videos all recognize the changed me as Mr Bojangles. I'll still occasionally be called my old name by people I knew before, but most people now call me Jangles or Matt. I'd encourage everyone to pick their own name, I picked mine because it was funny.

Sounds like a load of bull to me (the signed bill). If President Bush suddenly signed laws to regulate the internet, we would have heard about it and been outraged.

Horsepucky! George Bush can't read, let alone write! :P

Besides, the internet ain't just for Americans.

DUN DUN DUN! The man is trying to crack down on rogue flame wars starters, making only those who reveal their identities when they flame legal! We must form a resistance! I'M WITH CAPTAIN AMERICA!

sounds like some twisting of the Net Neutrality Bill, it keeps failing time and time again. And if it passes, you will definitely hear us complaining about it.

You might not be far off though, I think that it is actually because of the emergence of net tv, which IS a concern of the bill. Unlike regular television, I don't believe the FCC has control over as much of interenet-tv content. I think that the cursing thing came out of a need to try and regulate the new generation of TV.

For the last few months, I've watched almost everything I wanted to watch on You Tube. Its easily one of the best websites I've ever been to. In less then a year, its become something worth using. Unlike Myspace, which became something of a cess pool within the first fifteen minutes. It'll probably take you tube another two years to start sucking.

the IT crowd you mean? there should be Six episodes, that's all there is.

Also America is broken, flee the country now, before it becomes the new nazi germany.
Of course you will. All intelligent beings dream. Nobody knows why.

Also, tell random people they are awsome! it helps!
