    old news... but yeah it's bad and should be fought. It's good to keep people aware of this! This could be TERRIBLE for the internet. YouTube, TPB, and even BHW could be blocked! I don't think this will possibly pass, but it doesn't hurt to writeto your state's representative and tell him/her that they better fckin vote 'no' on this bill.

    Heard about this.

    This part interests me:



    "Because the bill targets domain names and not specific materials, an entire Web site can be shut down"



    So does that mean the same site can go back up with a different domain name? :cool:


    Sounds like a stupid bill with many loop holes.
