Post Subject: Erasing Anymous posting
Posted on: Mar 10, 2008

This is something that a kentucky lawmacker is hoping to become a bill. He wants Anymous posting to be illegal. Site operators would need to require members to issue their full name and address with the site, and every time they posted on the site, the pwersons full name would appear. This is in hopes of eliminating bullying.

To me this is ludicris. I say this as a site owner and human being, I'd never in my lifetime go for something like this. I pass out my full name more then most people due to the nature of this site, but if it's not realted to this site, I never giv eout more then my first name, and I'll be honest, my first name is among the most common in the US, so I feel safe doing it.

But imagine a flame war, now someone has your full name. Any talented hacker will crack the database and bam, all your personal info is right there for them. So to me, this isn't in the least bit a safer move. I hope this one fails, but knowing our government, they'll probably like it so they can keep tabs on people better...

Heres the full article, feel free to voice some anger:

This guy has no idea of anything to do with the internet or technical aspects of servers or ISP's , or for that fact the Patriot Act. As we all know the government has programs such as Carnivore and now a seperate agency set up to trace almost anything concerning the internet. As you stated Faceless
This is not only a bad idea but totally unnecessary, the only ones this would benefit as you said would be identity thieves and hackers.

lol the topics on digg right now and I'm even suprised how quickly it's being dugg, though they are definitely catering to the right audience on this topic.

It's just a general security risk in all aspects that I can see it in, and as far as a crime/prevention model, I think it'll actually create more crime then stopping it. Additionally it'll put site owners at a far greater liability. I know I wouldn't want all that info stored in this site. The only personal info that I store on this site that is human readable is the emails. User passwords aren't even stored in a human readable fashion on this site just because even though I feel I have some decent coding, I wouldn't want to risk it.
