Tenn. law bans posting images that "cause emotional distress"
#1
A new Tennessee law makes it a crime to "transmit or display an image" online that is likely to "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress" to someone who sees it. Violations can get you almost a year in jail time or up to $2500 in fines.

Someone better tell our congress representatives, so they don't transmit images of their schmeckel into Tennessee. Oh wait, congress always exempts themselves from these sort of things.....

yeah! that "schmeckel" frightened me!

someone should sell a tennessee screen cover that would turn opaque when an image was flagged by the tennessee distress filter.
I'm sure Jayne would add obama to the list.
Nobody would ever have to see something they disagreed with. what a fantasy life we could live.

teasing is usually acceptable.
personal attacks are rarely good form.
hopefully we both can tell the difference....

I don't think you have to be in tennessee; you just have to show that an electron passed thru tennessee on it's way to distress you that counts. so you should be good to file.

Well, I guess its a good thing I don't live there. I could wind up serving life.

Now that is a thought. If someone is dealing with WC and doesn't like thier medical care. They could try the federal system.
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.
