Well no matter anyone's take on it, it won't stand up once challenged in any court. Annoying can be defined in many ways. And Slapping on a screenname doesn't really make anyone any less anomyous.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Don't forget that it's entirely unenforcable though...

That doesn't make it a bad law though, and even though it won't deter a lot of people, it WILL deter some people believe you me.

You forget that we're talking about the government. They have experienced hackers working for them. Even then, it's not too hard to figure ot the IP address of a computer.

Behold the power of the Government!

They're watching you, and only you, excluding everyone else.

One is 'fake', the other is not, guess which!

In other news, Congress recently passed a law under which trees can be prosecuted for falling silently when noone is around to hear it.

And I'm sure trolling the internet searching for annoyances is the best use of there time.

Not to mention IP adress isn't the same as actual adress. Sure they could try to get info you may have given to the site by demanding it had over such info, but that would be an invasion of privacy, and breaking so many constitutional rights that the case and law would be brought and destroyed before the supreme court in a matter of seconds.

Why do they keep passing laws that are going to get struck down as unconstitutional?
