Introduced by New York State Sen. Thomas F. O'Mara (R-Big Flats), S6779 would require that any anonymous post online is subject to removal if the poster refuses to post - and verify - their legal name, their IP address, and their home address. From the (likely well intentioned) bill:

"A web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate. All web site administrators shall have a contact number or e-mail address posted for such removal requests, clearly visible in any sections where comments are posted."

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?

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.
