A bill in the New York State Senate could limit anonymous comments on websites.
The "Internet Protection Act" would require the web administrator of any New York-based site, including blogs, social networks, online publications and message boards, to "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," upon request.
Two of the bill's sponsors, Assemb. Dean Murray and Sen. Thomas O'Mara, say the goal is to fight cyberbullying.
What do you think? Does the right to express an opinion anonymously outweigh the rights of others not to feel abused?
Please tell us in the comments. Politely, of course.
