    With a certain new law in place, posting something on the internet that might offend someone is a crime. Since what might not annoy one person might annoy another person, I've decided not to post anything on the internet until either the law is repealed, or I'm 75. Then I'll be too old to care. Take care of yourselves. Thanks for all the help, the laughs, the advice & fun. In the words of the late & great Edward R. Murrow, "Good night & Good Luck. :( :(

    I can't imagine that Tshirthell or somethingawful or rotten will survive this new brand if abject retardery for very long. -.-

    "This brand of abject retardery" refers to that new law, not this thread.

    I guess I haven't been watching the news closely enough because I don't know what law this is in reference to.

    Can somebody give me a heads up.....do I need to don the tin foil helmut and throw on a flak vest?

    Hell, I offend people in real life and survive it, so I'll be fornicated if I worry 'bout the net. It's just another law and one of many. They got us by the short and curlies anyway, so we might as well fart in their general direction.:evil:

    Most people are reading WAY too much into this law.
    It has always been against the law to harass another person.
    All this law says is you can't get around that by being anonymous on the Internet.

    It is specifically aimed at those who INTENTIONALLY harass someone else, it has nothing to do with airing valid opinions that HAPPEN to annoy someone.

    I can still say .45 is better than 9mm, even though that annoys 1/2 of the people on this board.

    The law recognizes that they are here by choice, and must expect to be exposed to opinions they will not like. They have no legal recourse, just because they do not know who I am. That is totally immaterial.

    There is a difference between the letter of the law & the spirit of the law. I forgot to state above that I will respond to PM's.

    Can someone please help this article make sense? Who's in support of this new law? Arlen Sphincter?, American Communist Liar's Union?, Who??

    If this is indeed a law, does this mean anyone who sends me spam mail is now a criminal?

    And forget about Bush ever rising up to any occasion. The rock he's under is just too heavy.

    I'm not sure if the amount of posts that say "I hope you are joking" are referring to my decision not to post anything or because you don't want anyone to give in or because you don't think that there is a actual law about annoying someone. I don't want to give in. I won't give up. They haven't broken my spirit. Within each one of us there is a inch of integrity, of hope, of will. We must NEVER lose that inch. Within it, we are free.

    "Hey, I'm 53 and already don't care!"

    I've still got 35 years left till then.

    Could someone post the friggin' law? What laws say and what people say of laws is usually two rather different things.

    One has to do what they have to do.

    I find it interesting how "the more things change - the more they remain the same", how history has the ability to repeat itself.

    In reading the above article - please note :
    Society just keeps "allowing" themselves to give away Liberties to gain Freedom.
    I wonder if TPTB just did not assist in driving folks nuts with telephone harrassment to get legislation passed so easy to open the door to such laws as this Internet Harrassment law.

    What next? Books? I recall in various histories books were burned, media censored, travel limited, ID papers required for most anything.

    I have a number of favorite books I read again from time to time. These are special to me for various reasons. I'll just name four.

    Civil Disobedience-Thoreau
    1984 and Animal Farm-Orwell
    Atlas Shrugged-Ayn Rand

    Perhaps if a person were to send a copy of favorite works to TPTB this flooding of mail might send a message. Then again they would not understand these works anymore than the COTUS and BoR.

    Well there could be worse ways to be become a felon I suppose.


    Post 'em if ya got 'em


    Forefathers did. Many since have continued to fight Tyranny all these decades.
    All over the world folks have fought to keep Freedoms and fight Tyranny, I respect this, I respect the fallen in the process of fighting.

    People are still fighting in various ways.

    Two pieces of works penned by our very own come to mind:

    "Metal and Wood"
    by Dennis Bateman

    http://www.thefiringline.com/Misc/library/Metal_and_Wood.html

    and

    A Declaration of Civil Disobedience
    by Marko Kloos

    http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34976&highlight=Civil+Disobedience

    Substitute "Internet" if you wish.

    There is more to Responsible Firearm Ownership than Firearms

    Regards,

    Steve.
