Arizona Attempts To Make Trolling Illegal

Though unlikely to pass any First Amendment test. Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer has a bill on her desk that would in essence make trolling illegal. The law states It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use any electronic or digital device and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person.

This did indeed manage to pass through both houses of legislature and only needs a signature to become law — via Slashdot
