    I joined hoping to be able to discuss current events about "the internet" and censorship. Example, the current attack on bloggers by the Govt. to make them put ads saying they are recieving compensation.

    Would that be considered talking "politics" if it is a current event related to the internet?

    Who would be the person to ask to find out if they would consider letting us discuss issues if they were DIRECTLY related to the black hat world, blogging, SPAM and internet censorshiip?

    Do not take my word for it but I am sure admin and mods would be okay with this. Reason being, some of the issues you referenced WILL have a direct effect on some members lively hood.

    I will say that when I first heard about what your talking about in regards to review style sites they said it was more geared towards "BIG PLAYERS" and not the little guy bloggers.
    I saw this on CNBC Street Signs about 2 weeks or so ago.

    Also there is the Issue of internet neutrality. I have heard all kinds of things.
    For example, They intend to make it so you would have to pay for access to a certain number of sites. Much like cable and their "tier" packages.

    Example: For $30 You get google, yahoo, msn, some other authority sites ect...
    For $50 you would get the above plus some others.
    Well you get the idea.

    I have heard this would take place in 2012.

    Again, I have heard all kinds of horror stories in regards to the internet and censorship. I have NOT jumped into the subject enough to put my REP on the line and back some of this stuff.
    BUT I plan to.
    Needless to say, It does worry me. Good Bye IM if this shit happens.

    I have almost posted several times in regards to both of the things I mentioned. So thanks and good post.

    If any other B-hatters are well informed about any of the above I encourage you to post.

    YES! Thank God one person is out there other than me! This is SO important. All of you people on here... Your lives could be directly affected in a serious way. I feel like Noah standing next to the Ark saying a flood is coming and no one is listening. I have no intention of preaching sheep partisanship but this bill could change all of your lives and severe loss of Liberties are upon you.

    I think I found a feedback section I may be able to ask if we can discuss this particular issue more freely.
