    Some sites are reporting this with fear, but from reading this article and the relation with early laws it looks like this is an effort to combat serious trolling. I'm not talking "Sony copies everything" trolling, I'm talking the kind of trolling where people will mail girls images of mutilated kittens and people go and spam-post images of mutilated penises on forums. Mods everywhere have to deal with this crap, so many users don't even know it happens, but I've seen enough of it, and it can be pretty damn disturbing.

    This law looks like an attempt to make that kind of trolling illegal, and I welcome it if it'll be proven that it's just for things that are intended as harmful... but from the wording of the article it seems this latest one is too vague and open for abuse.

    I can't seem to find the resolution anywhere on the site.

    edit: I found something close to it here But It's different than the final edition that is here.

    There are actually some gore sites out there that I would not even want to post here even if I was still trolling the temps... (I mean... if I was the person who did anyway :3 Costello I plead the fifth)

    [​IMG] But seriously, make sure you stay away from gore sites. Goro anime pics are fine but the real thing and descriptions are nothing short of downright scary. And I have seen everything from tubgirl to goatse before that. There are far, far worse photographs to see than those.

    Oh come on. I mean yes there's lots of stuff that isn't right out there, but I can't think of anything that bad that wouldn't be covered by normal obscenity laws. A lot of people need to realise they have a duty to be quietly offended as well as a right to offend. And "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress" is a bit broad and a lot of people are very over sensitive about anything aimed at them but fully prepared to be as offensive as possible while trying to intimidate others into silence.
