Comment: The point is... (Score 1) 331

by myom (#17205956) Attached to: Sex Offenders to Register Emails in Virginia
The purpose might not to be prevent specific email addresses and nicks to access the websites, since they can be easily circumvented by just getting another email address.

Instead, the purpose could (or should) be to deter the use of the services in wrong ways. If a sex offender is caught (search warrant, data traffic logging or whatever) to be using an unregistered ID, severe penalties would apply.

In reality the traffic will not get logged.

In reality sex offenders' drive will make them repeat their offences despite attempts like these.

Badges? We don't need no stinking badges.
