    It's now a crime to annoy someone over the internet.

    Even if it's yet another violation of the Bill Of Rights, I can see some uses for this.

    If the literal text has such a vague standard as "annoy"
    then the courts will overturn it as unconstitutionally
    vague and overbroad in a ny second--

    I see validity, yet like and dislike the idea at the same time.

    There's got to be more to the law. I can't see the Senate passing this unanimously. Not one Senator voted against it?

    Trying not to get political since this thread was intended to be funny, but just an FYI incase you aren't very familiar with the system; this provision was added to a bill. A lot of times, including with the patriot act, many if not most senators don't actually read what they vote on. When they vote on a "must pass" bill when few senators are around, it's not that unusual to have a sweeping, idiotic vote.

    It's too sad to be funny.

    I think it's time for Arlen Specter to start receiving annoying emails.

    Yeah, that's what I meant. That it must be part of a bigger bill with just this little extra line. Probably some kind of bill that no one would vote against, especially in an election year. Like the No killing of Orphan's puppies using little cute kittens or babies act of 2008, otherwise you'd figure someone would vote against it.

    I think it's a subtle hint to the P & R regulars--the problem is that most of the hardcore P & R folks don't visit Foo .
