    So there are at least two representatives that actually care about their voters.

    There are quite a few, actually. Most of Congress didn't support this from the beginning. And to their credit, the regime pretty much said they'd veto it.

    Damn,


    This will bode well for me.
    Last year I did some time at a Supermax jail because I was uploading Peter paul and Mary CDs, Shell Silverstein e-books and potatoe gun blueprints.
    Those fagits caught me because i was randomly generating IPs and proxies and it just so happened that I landed on my own IP address. I'm definitely playing those numbers at mohegan next time.

    :haha7:

    I'm not buying it and I can still see them signing the bill into law late on a Friday or something. Even if they can't do it...something will get done. I just cannot trust them, the RIAA, or the Chris Dodd-led MPAA. Even Joe Biden has notoriously been the RIAA's biggest ally in the past.

    Not only that, but the Obama administration stocked the Justice Dept with RIAA lawyers. And don't forget, just two months ago, AG Eric Holder was urging citizens to snitch on their neighbors if they suspect they're stealing music, movies, watching illegal feeds or aiding in the distribution of illegal merchandise.

    I just have trouble believing the regime over this.

    I just think they'll add what was going to be SOPA in to page 1,391 of some military spending bill.

    It's certainly not split down party lines...that's for sure. But more repubs flopped back to against after shit hit the fan the other day. Looks like only 2 Dems decided there's just too much pressure to be for it.

    Before: 43 D's and 37 R's for. 17 D's against and 14 R's against.
    After: 41 D's and 24 R's for. 45 D's and 56 R's against.

    I'm sure the ones against it include the ones that only want to "tweak" both bills though, when they really need to toss both bills out. No matter what, they're going to try and pass something that puts legal pressure on US websites to filter out the copyrighted material...and have some 800 page winding explanation that has a bunch of words scribbled out and written over. And no one will read it...and it'll still be something completely ridiculous, yet do absolutely nothing to stop these illegal foreign websites (for example, connecting to piratebay via it's IP address, which is http://67.55.108.167 instead of the actual thepiratebay address.

    I just learned that my cunt senator (Hagan) co-sponsored PIPA with Leahy introducing that abortion. I'm sure that earned him some big time RIAA dollars and a high five from Dodd.

    This is exactly what will happen, just like the anti-poker bill they tacked onto something else.

    Say what you will about Democrats, but at least they don't take shit from their constituents and can be counted on to stand up for corporations. :icon_cool

    That's nice to know. The public wifi I'm on blocks sites like that.

    Yeah, I'd guess at least some public wi-fi spaces would block access to http://67.55.108.167 because I'm sure they wouldn't want people downloading torrents. Though I'm sure the download speeds would be pretty slow anyway. I dunno it works for me on my home router...as does typing in thepiratebay...whatever it is, in the address field. Interesting though.

    The real question is why on earth you are using TPB in the first place.

    If you can maintain a ratio there are a lot better places....

    I just used TPB as an example...the media, when mentioning these illegal pirated sites...usually brings up TPB, I've noticed. So I just looked up that specific IP address above.
