Electronic communications intended “to annoy” with “no legitimate purpose”

by Walter Olson on December 27, 2012

With a new law, Vernon County, Wisconsin has put itself at the forefront of attempts to regulate disparaging email, online chat, blogs, Facebook posts (specifically cited by one advocate at a hearing), and Twitter. The law seems to be a product of the media hype over “cyberbullying.” [Popehat, Volokh]

Dear Vernon County (hey I have to get in on this fun too!!)

“I fart in your general direction…”

“Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries”

“Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of silly persons! ..”

And that’s just from one movie!
