Yea, good luck with that CA.

So what relative of a CA politician owns a patent on "deleting shiat off the intwebz" and will now expect the ISPs to figure out how to do it and then pay him for it?

Young people do stupid things on the internet?  Last night I saw a girl (woman?) who's been 18 for a whole two weeks naked on a public cam site.  If its not bad enough that she's still in high school, she pulled out a bottle of vodka and started downing it.  She ended up saying her real name and the high school she goes to and talked about some of her teachers in an inappropriate way.  If anyone got a recording of that there could be serious consequences.  I think rather than than laws, we really need to teach cause and effect, responsibility, and consequences.

gaspode: Facebook and Twitter absolutely will have to comply with it though. They are both based in Cali. Of course it will be laughably ineffective but they will have to do something to appear to comply.

That's an interesting theory but let's consider that if  the Syrian Electronic Army has an account on Twitter; ergo, Twitter maintains the accounts of a known terrorist group...thus...wait for it....

...any stockholder or any one generating revenue for Twitter would be materially supporting a company that provides material support for a terrorist group.

just sayin...

Everyone knows posting stupid shiat on the internet is like pissing in the pool: to get rid of it, you gotta drain the entire thing.

Huh.  I've never seen a state so desperate to get one of their major industries to leave.

To bring an enlightened and conscise opinion how this works on the Internet, I throw it to our expert commentator, Morbo.

God-is-a-Taco: This ranks up there with "series of tubes". These people are in no position to dictate rules on something they cannot understand.

This is why we need term limits and younger blood in office.

seems like it would be easier to just ban minors from the internet.

California will be shocked to discover large parts of the Internet don't care about California laws.
