Arizona to make trolling illegal. This is going to be fun

Arizona House Bill 2549 has already passed both of the state’s legislative bodies and is currently sitting on the desk of Governor Jan Brewer. While there’s a lot in there that doesn’t concern trolling, here’s the line that has people worried:

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.

Man, its like painting a big target on themselves for some international trolling.

    The people voting this in have the minds of 15 year olds. I mean please can someone explain to me how grown up men and women actually can think this is okay behavior? I mean what example does this set to the next generation? If someone is annoying have them arrested? What the fuck!?

    "Lawmakers" are paid quite well to think this shit up.
