    Thank you, Danielle! You are right – this is a Cyber Civil Rights Movement. You could not have described it any more perfectly. Thank you for your support. We are so blessed to have you as an advocate!

    As you describe it, 18 U.S.C.A. 2261A(2) is an obviously unconstitutional dragnet. Just for example, anyone who posted information (from FOIA requests, say) on a website to discredit a politician could be charged with pursuing a course of conduct intended to cause said politician emotional distress.

    I realize that some people mistreat other people, but victims of cyber-harassment should find their remedies in the civil courts. To give prosecutors such a blunderbuss as you describe 18 U.S.C.A. 2261A(2) to be is a dangerous error. I predict that if Federal prosecutors start to charge under that section frequently, political defendants will outnumber private harassers ten-to-one or worse. Federal prosecutors don’t give a damn about private grievances but are always eager to slap down political troublemakers.

  3. Thank YOU Danielle. Your work has inspired much of our efforts. These are tricky issues, with serious real life harms. I look forward to your book and further working with you on these issues!
