Has anyone else heard of this new law? Seriously i wish, even through this is never gonna happen, that politicians actually started learning about the internet. Maybe from us "nerds" as they stated during SOPA.

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 This lasted a year before being repealed, I am guessing this will be the same.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!

I laughed so hard when i saw that, it made me imagine two people with derpy faces and cop uniforms, with the words I.P (internet police) and ask "is this the location of the armorgames user wflag10"? I would've put on my trollface on and told them it was my neighbor.

But did anybody else read the law? It basically states that you can't curse, or be "annoying".

Not everything served in caferteria's is healthy food, have you seen the fries they give us here.


wflag, if you tell them it was me I would show them my account and they could go through my computer and they would be able to tell I have never logged on under that name, then they would go back to your house and arrest you.
