    Err... little late, we had a small victory yesterday in that SOPA did not get passed to the floor. It looks like it may be down and out for a while

    that's what we thought, but they're quietly doing this again on the 21st.

    I watched some debates on SOPA in Congress and it was possibly the most hilarious thing I've seen so far this month. They are completely clueless about the Internet. It is like building a bridge without consulting with engineers!

    Anyways, it definitely won't be passed now - they aren't even going to be voting apparently.

    To the best of my knowledge they are going to be voting on it, Wednesday, the 21st.

    Let's hope not, I'm afraid to say that BHW would probably get blocked and that would be a bad day for most of us.

    With that being said there is already a known workaround but let's hope we don't have to resort to it.

    The more people that know about this and talk about (hopefully) the less of a chance it will have to pass.

    SOPA is so bad for the free press.
