Who Are You?


Kentucky state Rep. Tim Couch, a Republican, has proposed legislation that would ban anonymous posting on the Internet. The bill would require anyone who wants to post something on the Web to register their name, address and email address with the state, and they would have to use their real name whenever they post. Web site operators who allow people who haven't registered to post on their sites would be fined $500 for the first offense and $1,000 for each additional offense.
