Intent to Annoy

I understand that some of the trolls over at Bitch's and Twisty's are getting obnoxious, and that we all hate getting spam, but please, folks, don't help. CNET reports that early in January, Bush signed a law (the Violence against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act) which includes a prohibition against sending annoying material over the Internet without disclosing one's identity.

The FAQ offered is pretty comprehensive, including the the question of whether this should be the province of state or federal regulation. The law does state that one must intend to annoy the target, which means that a few of the people I'd really most like to shackle would be untouched. Sigh.
