The law seems to be a product of the media hype over “cyberbullying.” [Popehat, Volokh]

    “I fart in your general direction…”

    “Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries”

    “Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of silly persons! ..”

    And that’s just from one movie!
