Perspective: Create an e-annoyance, go to jail – CNET News
It’s no joke. Last Thursday, President Bush signed into law a prohibition on posting annoying Web messages or sending annoying e-mail messages without disclosing your true identity.

PS – I have a great $500/hour attorney who would be happy to take on anyone’s cases in regard to this area!
