This bill definitely needs work.
People who use fake names to bully others online could face criminal penalties under a bill passed Monday by the House of Delegates.
Delegates approved the proposal (HB4207) by a vote of 92-3, saying they want to target cyberbullies who anonymously make threats from behind the computer screen. But civil liberties advocates say the bill is written so broadly, it could criminalize constitutionally protected speech.
Sticks and stones can break your bones.
But words will never harm you.
Tell that to the guy who just heard the judge say, "I sentence you to death by lethal injection".
