3. Really? You're blaming a whole state? Aside from smearing

millions of people regardless of their ideology, don't you think it should be illegal to post people's (forget that it's family's!) contact information and addresses on Facebook and incite the scum of the earth to attack and threaten them?

Seems to me "Mississippi's" problem is that they need to rewrite the statute. Intent and ability to harm others should be enough without also requiring a post be lewd or lascivious. And if they word it well enough, hopefully particularlyi egregious offenses can be subject to felony charges, as well as misdemeanors for less vicious crimes or first offenses that didn't cause much harm.

Under Mississippi law, “any comment, request, suggestion or proposal by means of telecommunication or electronic communication which is obscene, lewd or lascivious with intent to abuse, threaten or harass any party to a telephone conversation, telecommunication or electronic communication” is unlawful.
