    And how do they plan to enforce that?

    I would it would presume it would only apply to servers/sites that are hosted in the NY state limits?

    Which means that all it will do is drive servers/sites out of NY state.

    Election times generate tons of proposals that everyone knows won't go anywhere but gives good ad bait for spin.

    Oppose this bill and "X opposes a bill that allows bullying of anonymous people on the internet" "X opposes a bill limited at reducing child abuse online"

    Support the bill and it's the opposite. Then the other side comes out with how they want to remove your free speech and big brother crap.
