Everyone except lawmakers knew this

The states of Utah and Michigan passed laws creating “don’t-spam-this-kid” lists, and everyone had to shrug and ask why? Besides the fact that the whole thing would be an administrative nightmare and tough to police, a few thought it might actually provide a backdoor for all kinds of scumbags to gain access to children.

Of course, high and mighty politicians don’t think of these things. They just pass laws and presume everyone will obey.

How to win jail time, quickly

If you send an email to a child in Utah or Michigan, beginning this week you could wind up in jail.
