Was This A Duh Moment?

I do have to wonder if someone up at the Capitol had a "duh" moment when House Bill 300 was being considered:

Instead of mere communication with another person in an inappropriate way, you can be deemed a criminal for posting an image that someone deems "emotionally stressful" on your website or Facebook page. This new provision could be especially dangerous to bloggers and online political reporters who use the internet as a means to share commentary, and include words and pictures which are definately going to be emotionally stressful to their political opponents. The so-called "cyber-bullying" law has the potential to lead to government bullying of citizens who are exercising freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
