25 years for trolling? That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. What happened to freedom of speech, one of America's most glorious rights?

And doesn't Arizona's state government have better things to do with their time? As in, don't they have more important stupid laws to enforce?

Hah, I was actually considering moving to Arizona... now I'm not so sure! I don't plan to do any trolling any time soon, but if they take crap like this seriously enough to actually put people in PRISON for it, that's definitely not a state I'd feel safe living in!

First of all, there is a difference between trolling and bullying. I've seen the fiference, trollers have seen it, and non-trollers seen it. Trolling is something that us more of folling around with a person. Bullying is saying hurtful words. See the difference?

and bullying is worth 25 years?
murder is 25 years in the usa. and if you just speak the truth and tell them you might just get 10 year.

Wow, I feel like this would be very hard to inforce. So many people would be in trouble. Time could be better spent on other things. Filling prisons with people who "troll" just seems ridiculous. Sometimes people say troll-ish things as a joke or sarcastically and then people will be thrown in prison? Trolling may be a problem sometimes but I think this is taking things a step too far.

I think if they actually tried to enforce this law, it would be prohibitively expensive, and if it does pass, one has to wonder how long into the next set of politicians the law would last.

ex. Back up in Washington there was a tax created for any non-flour or other such thing based food, like candy. This lasted a year before being repealed, I am guessing this will be the same.

p.s. If they made it illegal to troll on sites like the governor's official site, that would make sense.

Doesn't this make politicians illegal in Arizona? They commonly use electronic devices to sling mud at each other, especially around election time on TV.
And most people find those ADs extremely annoying.

IF it will put an end to those damm annoyin' political ads, I WANT IT PASSED!... Of course then 2 things would happen: A- they'll use a legal loophole to get around it/just ignore the law alltogether and B-Oh, yeah, there's that thing about it violating my rights as a ****ING HUMAN BEING!
