File this one in the ever-burgeoning category of: how insane can legislators get?

Congress is now debating an update to the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Turns out it’s already a misdemeanor to “exceed authorized use” of a computer, but the DOJ wants to make it a felony.

Of course, what does “exceeds authorized use” mean? Well, it means, for instance, an employee sending emails to pals while he’s at the office—because his employer has a rule against that.

In other words, the feds want to back up employers’ rules and turn them into felonies. Splendid.

When society reaches the point where we all behave so well and real violent crime is so rare that sending a non-work email to a friend while at work is worth prosecuting, then things are dog-gone good. \:\) How anybody can think we have attained that measure of "goodness" is beyond me.
