Kentucky lawmaker proposes to ban anonymous online posts

A state representative in Kentucky has filed a bill that would require website publishers to collect the real name, street and e-mail address of each person who posts to their sites. Publishers would be fined $500 for the first anonymous comment and $1,000 each subsequent violation.

If this motion came to pass it would effectively see the end, in Kentucky at least, of the current trends in  interactive news that have become popular. In reality it will most likely see a blanket ban on Kentucky-based IPs from many webmasters.
