Its best to ignore sites like that. many times people get half facts. The internet is public and world wide domain.

Sadly, the proposed SOPA legislation is a real bummer. If passed it will make your ISP liable for your posting and they in turn will have to begin censoring what you send and receive in order to avoid financial and possible criminal penalties. The whole notion is rather over the top - utterly in favor of BIG CORPORATIONS as they merely need to accuse to get a site or isp blocked (added to the blacklist). Personally, I see this as very damaging to the www which was intended to be a sort of public commons - sadly, big corporations seem to want it to be a sort of yellow pages with only their listings in it.

Take the time to read up on this one (it hit my favorite nerd news outlet some several days ago) - and is a serious issue for anyone serious about keeping your freedoms on the internet.

Be well. Game on.

This topic pops up on my favorite source for 'Nerd News' - and it showed there again today...

Worth a read and a chuckle.

And also from the EU on this matter...
