Annoying anonymous blogging already illegal?

There's been some discussion about the move in Kentucky to make anonymous blogging illegal, yet most people don't seem to remember what happened in 2006, US President George W Bush ratified a in January of 2006 that makes it illegal for people in the United States to post anything to a blog that could be deemed “annoying” anonymously.

The law, which was buried in the Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act, titled “Preventing Cyberstalking” rewrites existing telephone harassment law to prohibit anyone from using the Internet “without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy.”
