    • On February 20, 2009, by Sparhawk2k - I don't know too much about this but it seems to go way too far. "A provider of an electronic communication service or remote computing service shall retain for a period of at least two years all records or other information pertaining to the identity of a user of a temporarily assigned network address the service assigns to that user." That's insane. Especially since that refers to individuals and their home WiFi as far as I can tell. I'm all for "protecting the children" but what about privacy? And allowing people to have WiFi without ridiculous restrictions on it that make it unfeasible?

    • On February 20, 2009, by bickelj - What about the fact that it's none of the government's business, it's totally outside the bounds of the Constitution, and protecting the children is a worthless screen to hide behind?
