Right, so I take it most people have heard about this now, but for the hell of it, let's discuss this thing called S.O.P.A.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhwuX...Q&feature=plcp

Now I don't know a lot about law or stuff like that in general, so I'll cut my bit short...

The video is pretty explanatory and my guess is that Lyncheh and Sanyu already know a lot more about this and will post a wall of text here which will explain things far better than I could hope to.

With that, you have the floor.

I don't know that much about it, actually. I know of it, though. I only knew that Obama was supposed to have a "kill switch" for the internet, which pissed me off because I'm not American, why should my internet use be hindered because of "national threats" >.>

Or was that something else entirely? I didn't know about the DNS blocking for pirating. I would've thought thepiratebay would be the first go-to for blocking, but tpb is too awesome for that.

I don't know if it was international or not, but here they tried to ban tpb's ip... They even tried to prosecute the owners ot tpb but that failed miserably because of some legal issues.

An internet kill switch would make sense in the sense that the US made the internet during the cold war for military use and such... I have no way of knowing if any of the kill switch legend holds any truth however, especially now that it's a pretty much free nation of it's own.

Honestly, I had hoped you and/or lyncheh and her merry band of mods had some more lights to shine on this subject, not only for my own interest but perhaps to spark some kind of awareness among k.net users. I know there must still be somel urking around...

The Lynch doesn't really visit K-net anymore. Last activity was a month ago heh, but she would be the one who's up on world issues. I stay out of the media. For example: I only found out about Kim Joon Il dying because of Know Your Meme's post on Facebook :|

I dunno, news makes me either cry or rage and I like neither of those emotions, so I don't bother with the news. The vid you posted was really interesting though, I just can't really wrap my head around writing a reply for it XD

I liked that he compared these people who know zilch about the internet being given control to toddlers piloting all the jets in the world. Awesome illustration of just how bad an idea it really is.

I remember they tried to take down tpb, that's why I say they're so bad ass :P they have a billion domains and one lone legislation can't touch all of them. Or something. ♥tpb

Well you're close to the Lynch, are you not? Make her come back here and spill all the news she has! Make her enlighten the poor stupid people of which I am a part. Make her shoo the toddler pilots away and all that.

lol I linked her, she said she couldn't be bothered typing her password. Hina and the Lynch have the right idea to avoid Kupi-anything, I admire their discipline lol I'm gluttons for punishment coming back here >_<

they both just up and left anything kupi-related?

thats a bit harsh considering hina's the one who everyone turns to

and if its punishment you seek, there's plenty to be had

Eh, not officially, but if something pisses you off it's natural to avoid it.
