      I love how when Omnis disputes something it actually improves the statistical odds of it being right.

      What did I dispute? I just think anyone with the balls to say they're rarely wrong needs a good dose of humility. You more than anyone. I'm still waiting to see how you respond to the evidence I posted in the EM field thread. Or are you finally willing to admit you were wrong about something?

      What you call "evidence", the scientific world calls pseudo-scientific nonsense.

      You're probably the most arrogant poster on this forum. Either you or Xei.

      Yeah I just read that a minute ago. They said that it was written irresponsibly and would undermine the infrastructure of cybersecurity on the internet. Something about their reasoning makes it sound like SOPA would interfere with their plans for internet security.

      The White House statement went on to say, however, that the Obama Administration believes "online piracy is a real problem that harms the American economy" and that 2012 should see the passage of narrower legislation that targets the source of foreign copyright infringement.
      That is why the Administration calls on all sides to work together to pass sound legislation this year that provides prosecutors and rights holders new legal tools to combat online piracy originating beyond U.S. borders
      This is still horrible news.
      Why the fuck do they think they can pass legislation in one country and somehow fucking apply it to the rest of the world?
      That's not how it works. Die now please thankyou.

      Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-California) said that the hearing will be postponed for the time being and that the focus now should be placed on the Senate's PIPA bill, which Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has committed to moving forward in the next two weeks.
      No one saw that coming.... right?

      I see Huff Post on there. They are only somewhat credible, sort of like a left wing version of Fox News. Got a CNN or NY Times article saying the same thing? I've actually seen very little from the white house regarding SOPA.

      EDIT: Oh, it's a brand new release, read it now. Yay white house. They finally did something right.

      It pissed of Rupert Murdoch so bad he unleashed a string of tweets. One of which was something like "I just googled mission impossible and found several sites offering it for free, so blah blah blah." I lolzed. Click those links and see what happens dumbass.

      Rupert Murdock can go cry into his seven billion dollar bank account. He is just asking to be attacked again by hackers.

      Google's totally copping out, every search result should be about Sopa. Blacking out their logo doesn't mean shit. Wikipedia gives you the contact info for your senator and representative.

      Yes, Google putting political activism on their front page is totally copping out.

      I was right about most of the sites people thought would shut down, and the ones that did shut down are only doing it for a day.

      Nobody thought they were going to go down. Most of the sites have put related links and text on their frontpage though. Google is running a petition. Google is doing political activism. This is huge.

It will be interesting to watch, that is for sure. If only the airlines stood up for themselves this way when TSA was first created.

      Oh, so now we're going with the "nobody REALLY thought it would happen" story. Revisionism is easier than admitting you were wrong I guess.

      cmind, those websites threatened black out if the bill passed. Nothing has passed yet. Why are you always so confrontational? Not everything has to be a fight.

      Yes, I was wrong when I told Xaq and ThePreserver that Google and Amazon would close down, and I told them to tell you.

      On top of the fact that they didn't actually mean today, these two people do not represent all opinions apart from yours on DreamViews.
