    Nothing will stop blackhatters, small businesses, and others from doing what they do--not even the SOPA bill.

    What it will do however is fuck up the market and make it a lot more difficult for you and me.

    I'm not sure if we've already seen this enough on this forum, but I figure for the cause it doesn't matter.

    If everyone could please take a measly 60 seconds out of their day to simply submit an e-mail to any US congressman so we can stop this piece of shit bill.

    https://action.eff.org/o/9042/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8173

    Alot of you outside of the U.S. don't understand that the same DNS blocking that goes on in various countries such as CHINA is going to go on here. Everyone's US traffic will be affected. Everyone's pockets will be affected.

    Better safe than sorry.

    Also there should be some sticky note for stop SOPA, I mean damn, after all, this is where it's needed...

    EVERYONE - This IS a big deal. Just to give you an idea how big it is. Some Internet companies are 'shutting' down to protest this.

    I have hope that the Internet will pull through! SOPA is the greatest threat we've seen so far and the future of the internet would be unimaginable if it was passed :(

    Where have you been for the past few days, DNS blocking has been taken out of the SOPA bill by its Author.

    SOPA is starting to fall apart so much it seems as more and more opposition to it increases and companies drop support.

    Which why we need to be militant about it. Blog against it, leave comments on other blogs about it. take surveys and denounce it, don't do like most people and get all ass-in-the-sky about it, then do nothing.

    WE NEED TO BE ACTIVISTS ABOUT THIS.

    WRITE, EMAIL, CALL, AND TELEGRAPH YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATOR ABOUT THIS.















    What are you still reading here for, DON'T YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO GO DO?

    Stay eternally vigilant. The tornado of protest kicked up over this has caused politicians to back away from it---FOR NOW. They may say they've seen the light, but as soon as you turn your back, they'll slip SOPA provisions into the back end of an appropriations bill or something, and we end up with it anyway. Also watch out for any international treaties that contain SOPA like language, for once the pols pass it, we get the SOPA without anybody in DC even writing a bill. Eternal vigilance, folks, short term, long term, and forever.

    I highly doubt this bill is going to pass. I think it's obvious that very few people support it.

    Zebrahat is exactly right...they did it with NDAA....there used to be a bill called the Enemy Combatants act that Mccain wrote and sponsored and the opposition was soo great that they shelved the bill...only to add it into a defense budget bill as a rider last month! They do this sneaky crap all the time....

    that bill is a fucking joke and a half. I love how companies who support it don't even know what it stands for.

    on 2006 us government brings up the UIGEEA , everything changed after that . 2012 SOPA it's the time to make another huge step into evolution I think . I don't know how you guys elect your representatives . I know my home country it's crappy and I don't give a damn shit about it , voted only once like 10 years ago first and only time , but on US things are bit different . How the society allow to happens such things I`ll never understand .

    F** SOPA!! And f** all this censorship they try to bring upon us.
    When they promote us to buy crappy music / movies but advertise them as great / amazing / movie of the year, it is very logical that people will pirate music, movies or stream online instead of wasting money.
