    Could we pretty please discuss the new bills that are coming up the pipelines that will be censoring the internet and will affect our lives and liberties? A huge storm is brewing and if we don't rally the troops your livelyhoods could be severely affected.

    Thanks!

    what bill are you talking about? I heard about one in Canada that will let ISPs go into your computer, install spyware and and delete files without your permission/knowledge. Are there any others?

    Doing a quick, I repeat QUICK search...I am seeing this: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-10320096-38.html

    Is that what you are referring to? If not, then what are you talking about exactly? Do you have any links to articles or any information regarding this bill? I'm interested in finding out what I can now..surprises of this nature are no fun.

    why don't you stop being so fucking cryptic and say what you want to say. most of us are working and don't have time to research the fucking bill.

    I was going to write a very long response to this, but im going to lay it out simple for you: Its because of people with mentalities like yours, that government passes things like the patriot act, and this new "net neutrality" bill, with the least of effort. You show any lack of concern for your future and well being by making statements like those. When your kids are being put in juvenile detention for watching copyrighted material or downloading a song 15 years down the line, or copy/pasting something from the internet, you will probably have a different mentality. If you dont want to put down the effort to research something that will affect you now and in the future in terms of taking away some of your rights, you might as well give them all away now.

    If you want to take responsibility and ownership for this country (USA) please subscribe to campaignforliberty .com (It's not my site but RON PAUL is an angel to save the United States)

    Also Read and comment on the uprise of ChuckyPita .com (Not mine either)

    I can't believe I wear the uniform at times cuz the constitution has been 80% erased from our lives.... We are turing into a socialist/commnist country... Shit is going to hit the fan...

    My blood is starting to BOIL.... Seriously... Everything is shit... We are already stripped of our rights and are economical slaves financially and our freedoms are tarnished by spoiled people... I'm in the military so I can't say too much...

    As far as I know we are not allowed to discuss any politics EVEN if it is about a bill that directly affects our livelyhood.

    I was asking permission to discuss this issue (as long as it doesn't get hijacked)

    I am a member of CFL too and donate to Ron Paul ;)


    I'm hoping someone will let us know.... If we sit on our hands and do nothing then we deserve everything we get!

    I've read those links, and I don't understand what this is all about at all.

    I know big corps. rarely have the little peoples interests at heart. I see a lot of generalities, but no specifics. How will this affect us?

    IF you don't know what we are talking about then why are you throwing out opinions??

    This and the football statement is what is called "hijacking a thread"

    The discussion is about

    ( Can we discuss a bill about internet censorship and Govt. control of the internet)

    but thanks for the bump

    Erm, I didn't express an opinion at all.

    For what it is worth I have been following the 'net neutrality deal for a good few years. I understand what 'net neutrality is. What I don't understand is how it will affect IM.

    EDIT: Forget I spoke. I have only just realised this thread was in the suggestions forum.
