Default Arizona bill could criminalize Internet trolling

What is with Arizona law makers after all?!? Seriously.

Arizona bill could criminalize Internet trolling


Bolded for stupidity:

It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use ANY ELECTRONIC OR DIGITAL DEVICE and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person.

That might be a problem. Sometimes, there is a fine line between being a troll, and being highly opinionated (truly opinionated, not just posting to piss people off)

Once people get in office they go crazy. They think new laws are the answer to everything.

The line is only as fine as the reader allows it to be, most cases of " trolling" are very obvious. On this forum the label is frequently used to discredit differing opinions

I think the AND in the middle should be bolded as well. I can say
"your ideas are bad and you should feel bad, my dog is smarter than you"
but I can't say
"your an ass!"
/Not saying that to anyone in particular just offering an example

"you all are dumbasses"
/Saying that in particular to the geniuses who thought this up

We do. They're called mods, and they each carry a big ban stick.
