Did you hear? It is now illegal to be annoying

No joke. Last Thursday, President Bush signed into law a prohibition on posting annoying Web messages or sending annoying e-mail messages without disclosing your true identity...

Consider this civil disobedience, then.

UPDATE: Once again, Caesar and the boys over at ars technica have shown us the way with all things technomalogical. The law is essentially a paraphrase of crank-call laws already on the books: Thou shalt not email that which would be damnable if spoken over the telephone.
