This is the 1000th reply on this thread. I think we can safely say we’re going too far.

- Not a Purim joke: New Jersey state senator has proposed a bill that would ban the sale of non-flushable baby wipes throughout the state -- and would punish anyone who violates the ban with a fine of as much as $20,000. Earlier this week, Democratic lawmaker Joseph Cryan, introduced the bill, which notes that non-flushable baby wipes can mistakenly get flushed down a toilet leading to problems for municipal septic systems. If the bill is approved, anyone who sells non-flushable baby wipes in New Jersey could face a $10,000 on first offense and a $20,000 fine on any subsequent offenses.
All wipes are non-flushable. I've had to pull "flushable" wipes from a clogged sewer pump 4 times already, and, no, I am not a plumber. They should ban the marketing of "flushable" wipes, and call them all non-flushable.

But that would mean all wipes would be banned. Banning all wipes would be a bit much. One might even say it's going too far.

Mistakenly flush wipes down the toilet? If this bill is being proposed because ppl do this by mistake, Joseph Cryan needs a new job. I wonder how many wipes get flushed down a toilet by mistake.
There are probably more menchies getting flushed down accidentally. Will the senator ban the sale of menchies too?

Garbage bin has enough space for that diaper change.

Ah, so you don't want to ban the wipes, just it should be placed in the trash bin and not flushed down, great! Now look at the bill again and make sure you still support it.

I'm using flushable wipes for years already with no issues, I make sure never to flush more than two at a time. Perhaps basement sewer pumps are different?

Probably because there is no way to enforce everybody's flushing habits

Instead, the politician will do something that won't solve anything to make it look like he's working.

We have outrage from the right saying she was serious, even a member here.  ;)

The outrage should be for saying it at all, even jokingly. This type of talk only pours fuel on the fire as Jan 6 has shown us.
