"The bill, called the Internet Posting Removal Act, is sponsored by Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein. It states that a 'web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless the 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.' This could be the death of Slashdot: No more ACs.

Mainstream media spends years advertising the horrors of the religious Jihad, and mainstream politicians embrace it.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.
