More Banning

MarketingVox tells us about a Republican-sponsored bill to restrict access to social networking sites. The bill, as it's written, has implications for sites that offer interactivity like bulletin boards or chat, as well. Looks like the equivalent of using a bazooka to swat a fly. It severely limits interactivity or expression for American kids under 18. Why we can't just get parents to pay more attention to their kids is beyond me.

In any case, it ought to be fun (NOT) to watch website operators scramble to figure out a way to kick off all under-18 participants in their open-access forums and such.
