Introduced by New York State Sen. Thomas F. O'Mara (R—Big Flats), S6779 would require that any anonymous post online is subject to removal if the poster refuses to post — and verify — their legal name, their IP address, and their home address. From the (likely well intentioned) bill:
"A web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate. All web site administrators shall have a contact number or e-mail address posted for such removal requests, clearly visible in any sections where comments are posted."
"The big question for me is why there isn't more transparency about what's going on?" asks Jennifer Lynch, a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a civil liberties group in San Francisco. "We should know more about the program and what the FBI is doing. Which carriers they're working with -- which carriers they're having problems with. They're doing the best they can to avoid being transparent."
On this forum there has been mention of the US government developing "bugs" as small as insects, with the capability to fly, crawl and report data back to an operator.
We were walking by La Moneda the other day and noticed a higher density of "dogs" which were "sleeping" next to La Moneda than any other building we passed in Santiago Central. Perhaps they are tailoring of the same capability for the Chilean environment. Perhaps Piñera should be careful not to disclose too much information within earshot of any unknown visitors (dogs).
