anonymous Internet harassment is now a federal crime.

The Communications Act of 1934 criminalizes anonymous harassment by a telecommunications device. Congress recently amended the law to criminalize anonymous harassment via the Internet. Some argue that the law curtails freedom of speech. Perhaps. If someone is blogging or commenting anonymously about a private citizen in an obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, or indecent manner with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass, it is actionable, according to the new law. But should someone have the freedom to do that? Apparently Congress doesnt think so. What do you think?

I can't really comment on this not having seen the law itself. From my research I can't seem to find it. I know there has been talk about implementing such a law, but where have you read this? Perhaps it's just a bill.
