Stop Online Piracy Act

In order to take a stand against SOPA (hurray!) and PIPA (hurray!), the English version of Wikipedia has been blacked out for 24 hours.

Reddit will also be down for 24 hours so millions of people are going to have a very, very productive day and get lots of work done.

“A so-called ‘blackout’ is yet another gimmick, albeit a dangerous one, designed to punish elected and administration officials who are working diligently to protect American jobs from foreign criminals


If they want to save American jobs, simple stop the huge companies from producing their crap in Chinese factories. There you have it, 300,000 jobs available. But we all know that's not what that guy meant, he meant the jobs of the people who do nothing but buy patents and copyrights in order to sue people.

Only twelve hours. The second 8PM hits, all of my productivity will vanish.

I can't even begin to conceive a mindset where that quote would make any sort of sense, Spinal. What utter fucktard said that?!?

The media companies in the US are trying to pressure the US government in to giving them unbelievable power to police the internet. Fuck that. They already abuse the DMCA so they've proven they cannot handle more power. Millions of Americans are taking a firm stance against it. We're not going to put up with their crap.
