A mod should know to look for one before posting, there was one already, quite lengthy as well. If memory serves it got closed.

Wow ...

I'm fine with the abuse, threaten or harass, but annoy? Seriously, just annoying someone and getting a jail term is going abit overboard. If really look at it, whether someone is annoying or not is simply an opinion.
How could they implement such a thing? For example, this post could be annoying but what they're saying is that i could be landed 2 years in jail for it.

If anybody goes to jail for this, they'll be a celebrity.

What a stupid law, how can they police it?

It's the most stupid law ever. how can they even police it? And how can they decide what's "annoying" and what's not? Pathetic I say...
