PostSubject: SOPA! It's not just a discussion.   18.01.12 11:52

It's a real thing, many companies, many websites, and our very homeland is in danger!

https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/

The vote for SOPA and PIPA will be January 24th. Cross your fingers and hope to god our homeland will not be wiped out from the face of the interwebs because of this unconstitutional bill!

These companies have all openly spoken out against the bill. Join their cause!

The internet is no longer just a land of videos and forums.
I have observed the great idiots of America from all over the internet.
I have lived among the Bronies, Redditers, Furry Clan, Tumblers, and Whovians.
I have watched virtual cities rise and fall, both because of strife, or because of trends.
I have wandered to many great forums across the internet and observed many different places.
I am the Wanderer and I have traveled through the many planes of existence that is the Internet.
I have learned a lot about this world and realize I know nothing about it at all. Thus I will continue to wander.

E3 Supports SOPA/PIPA, boycott E3 this year as well! (for real boycott it, and encourage any gaming news sources you enjoy to do so as well, do not support or attend E3.)

Thank you Sam. ^_^

I'm not going to worry about this thing because it's obvious that it won't pass. If it did, the U.S.A. would have a lot of riots on its hands.

If SOPA would pass it would be very anti-democratic.

Which wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Yes but these days nothing but Republicans rule this country these days, making sure Obama can't do shit by holding long meetings in the Senate.

I seriously hope you're joking. It had bipartisan support, idiot. Plus a good amount of Republicans spoke out about it. Obama is a horrible president, deal with it.

- (noun) As one of the most beautiful words in the English language, susurrus is defined as a soft, murmuring sound. It resembles the rustling symphony of the leaves moving across the pavement or the whisper created by the branches of the trees on a windy, autumnday. Uttering susurrus out loud also simulates the acoustics of nature’s effect; this is one of those rare words where its aesthetic, sound and feel coincide beautifully.

If Sopa passes, I'm ditching to Canada.

Also, Obama isn't that bad of a President. We could have much worse, like Herman Cain. I'm not saying I fully support Obama, I'm just glad we got him over McCain and Palin. I honestly don't care if it's a Elephant or a Donkey in the office, just someone who won't fuck up too much.

I agree with sai on the government thing. But, I'm afraid fleeing won't help much... It'll still kill any american based site, like youtube... or google...

Youtube's too backed to be knocked down, but it can be pushed back. If SOPA passes, I really don't think anyone who has common sense under the age of 40 will ever live the same lives ever again. Or a life worth living if we're constantly being pressured into all this censorship, lawsuits over ridiculous crap that has no real harm. If SOPA passes all that's going to happen is a large gateway for unlawful and immoral total control over the "free" people to pass. People will go to jail for saying "Fuck" in the streets, church and state no longer separated as much as it is now, people being dragged from their homes, soilent green makes a big debut...

I know what I'm saying might seem unrelated or exaggerated, but this will be the future we are moving towards.

I think your forgetting one thing... if they ignore the people and pass this shit... do you think the government will really survive even a month after this takes effect?... I'd predict rioting and REBELLION on a scale never seen before. The Government would crumble and the people would hit the reset button on the entire deal... This may be slightly exaggerated, but it's hard to control your people when half the people who are meant to enforce their control are with them in their rioting.

Colin, I tell my friends and teachers this all the time: If we could bring the Founding Father's back from the void, you'd see George Washington breaking down the door of the White House with his white steed and killing everyone inside, then moving into the other governmental buildings with the other Father's killing them all. And then they'll try to bring back the United States as it SHOULD BE :3 They've already rolled over in their graves, now their just pissed.... And dust >.>....

Going to Canada would fix nothing, lol. Canada licks up the USA's semen like it is candy. Also, I don't think SOPA alone is enough to induce rioting. However, the NDAA and SOPA/PIPA together would certainly anger people to no end.

Also, to clarify:

SOPA is intended to block our access to foreign websites.

PIPA is intended to block our access to websites hosted in the US of A.

NDAA lets the military indefinitely detain anyone they deem as being a terrorist, lol.

Also, Sam, Republicans and Democrats have nothing to do with it. It's the fact that our federal government is too weak to control anything - essentially, it is what the Confederate States of America intended to be. SOPA and PIPA are, naturally, about lobbyists wanting to save the already overly huge amounts of money they have obtained that they do nothing with, despite all the poor and starving. I'd imagine the NDAA is the federal government trying to compensate for its lack of balls.

^agreed on political views.

But even then if you move to Canada, you still won't have any to none access to any website; a lot of of websites come from the USA like Youtube, Facebook etc. so you're still fucked when trying to access the web at all.

Plus, don't forget about the PROTECTIP Act too, it's the same thing but it's a "less extreme" according to the supporters. So even then we stop SOPA, we gotta stop this act too.

Just watched the SC Debate. All of them took the position that SOPA was wrong, blasted the people who drafted it, and stated that the party had taken the wrong position on it. I especially liked Gringrich's point.
