More on anonymous annoyances

Many of the blogs I follow were abuzz yesterday with discussion of the Declan McCullagh column on CNet News entitled "Create an e-annoyance, go to jail". (I wrote about it here: "Anonymous 'net annoyers headed to jail".)

There are widely divergent opinions all over the 'net on what this poorly drafted provision actually means. Some suggest that it attacks all anonymous speech that is annyoing, including blog postings and comments. Others suggest that it is very restricted and might not even cover e-mail. Some discussions worth checking out:

The original McCullagh article is also followed by a bunch of reader comments, so check that out too.
