    So that the person who's annoyed by you, can travel to your place and kill you or paying you back in a way s/he prefers! ( disclosing your address and phone number is necessary as well)

    This thread annoys me. Mods, please delete it, so I don't have to resort to a lawsuit.

    I think its pretty funny that if no one in the media caught this... no one would be arrested on this. It's probably that someone wasn't thinking when they wrote the bill and someone caught it and is blowing it out of proportion to sell newspapers.

    Ahh yes I forgot he is under-age. However, if you look at the "How tall are you thread" you will notice that he is 6' or taller, so maybe we could pass him as an adult?

    The only time he really annoyed me, was that. Why a 13 year old boy should be taller than me? :grumpy:

    can I call the police and ask them to arrest my jealousy? it usually annoys me!

    :rofl:

    Unfortunately, this news is already making the circuit on internet forums, mostly by the trolls trying to see if they can threaten to use it (no Perennial, I'm not calling you a troll...I meant on the other forums I've seen people posting it). As it's written, it'll never hold up to challenge if anyone tries to use it. It seems to be part of an anti-spam or anti-cyber-stalking law, but the problem is that it requires demonstrating intent, and I don't think that's going to be very easy to prove or enforce.

    The intent is probably good, but inclusion of the word "annoy" along with the obviously unacceptable intentions behind "abuse, threaten, or harrass" seems ill advised. There's often a thin line between teasing someone and annoying them. I wonder what kind of "annoyance" prompted them to include this in the law.

    :rofl: yep, just shaved so it probably doesn't fit any longer.

    From the original link:
    Starting to sound like a "no brainer" in more ways than one.

    Wow! does this mean that I will finally see an end to the dozen anoying spam emails I get everyday? :rolleyes:

    That's the thing. It doesn't outlaw things that annoy you, only things that intend to annoy you.
