One thought on “Illinois senator Ira Silverstein calls for online anti-anonymity bill

  1. I find it hilarious how the United States of America’s constitution applies to those who are not American citizens, but yet it appears that you lose your constitutional rights as soon as you sit behind a computer screen. Illinois is by far the most oppressive state there is in my opinion. Just look at their firearms laws and wiretapping laws compared to the rest of the states.
