    Maddox put it best in his article over at: http://maddox.xmission.com/

    For those of you who don't know Maddox already, he tends to use harsh language and a ton of sarcasm, but don't let that distract you from the brilliant point he's making here.

    i dont know if this is relevant, but because of this Sopa thing, my internet company no longer allows Piratebay.

    Error comes up wen i try access it and it says your internet company no longer allows it due to orders from the court.

    sucks!

    Well I hate SOPA and everything it stands for. However, I believe something like SOPA or SOPA itself will be passed. It's just how the governments are. They want power. Also, I do have to admit that pirating is a little out of control at times. I understand both sides of the story. If I pirate a game and enjoy it, I will buy the game to support the developers. I think the internet will end up being policed to some extent. I mean it already is in some places and some sites are already being censored. So it's really not that far to go.

    SOPA is an octopus and we don't even know the names of all of the tentacles.
    One thing Black Hatters know is when they close a door in our face two more
    open for us to exploit. THIS IS SPARTA beyotch!

    There are 11 types of internet users:
    1. Those who don't know shit and are affected by SOPA, PIPA, SUCKA, LICKA, MOFUCKA, etc. because they're too dumb to take the time to learn how to use the internet or a computer for that matter.
    2. Those who don't give a shit because there's always a way. Just as a sidenote, lots of years ago I had my internet on a 56kbps (that's 5.6 KB/s maximum) dial-up modem and I payed per minute the phone company. Dial-up accounts would cost an arm and a leg too. Guess what, I just did social engineering on IRC (didn't even knew it had a name or somebody else did it before) having a girly name and making stupid horny guys install Sub7 thinking is my .zip self extracting archive with photos from a wet t-shirt party or something like that => free dial up accounts. High cost of phone use /minute => learned to get the job done fast and not fuck around. That as useless though because now i spend hours watching moronic cute kitten vids on that abomination of a site called youtube.
    3. Those who know binary.

    Those are all 11 types of people on the internet.

    Something similar will pass someday. There's nothing we can do about it.
