Submission + - Anniston, AL to censor employees' Facebook pages (

ISurfTooMuch writes: Id you're a city employee in Anniston, AL, you'd better watch what you say on Facebook. Under a proposal being considered by the City Council, employees would be banned from posting anything "negative" or "embarrassing" about the city. Note that they aren't talking about official city pages here, but employees' personal pages. Anyone care to educate these clowns on the existence of the First Amendment?
