The two are sponsoring a bill that would ban any New York-based websites from allowing comments (or well, anything) to be posted unless the person posting it attaches their name to it. But the bill also goes further, saying New York-based websites, such as blogs and newspapers, must 'remove any comments posted on his or her website by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post.'"

Would be nice if New York voters would at least try to get rid of legislators who seek to control the voters lives.

New York is commonly on the news for various civil right violations. It seems many of the leaders there are clueless, as are those that elect them.

Doctors, dentists, politicians, anyone with money that does a lousy job and gets called out (rightly or wrongly) for it on the Internet. This is the first step towards being able to more easily identify the person they want to sue for libel.

What's amazing about this bill is it has no identification requirement for those who request the takedown of anonymous content.
