Why SOPA is dangerous, an explanation of the bill

Why SOPA is dangerous
To Sum Up
  • Gives the government the right to unilaterally censor foreign websites.
  • Gives copyright holders the right to issue economic takedowns and bring lawsuits against website owners and operators, if those websites have features that make it possible to post infringing content. [A comment feature is enough.]
  • Makes it a felony offense to post a copyrighted song or video.

This bill turns us all into criminals. If it passes, then you either stop using the Internet, or you simply hope that you never end up in the crosshairs, because if you’re targeted, you will be destroyed by this bill. You don’t have to be a big, mean, nasty criminal — common Internet usage is effectively criminalized under this law. This bill will kill American innovation and development of the Internet, as it will become too risky to do anything of value. It is toxic and dangerous, and should not, under any circumstances, be supported.

Semi-coherent venting...

Gee, thanks for all your support, everyone. I really feel the enthusiasm you all have for this project.

You all suck. If I could reach through the Internet to slap people, I'd do it to the lot of you in a heartbeat. As of right now, I hate each and every one of you. It'll pass; but if I don't get a satisfactory - i.e. non-stupid - response to the message I posted, not only am I going to leave the forum for a week, thus avoiding saying things I'm not likely to be able to take back.

You broke my heart, you jackasses.

Let us now speak of talentless, overrated hacks.

No, not Stephanie Meyer; I've had more than enough of that moronic, pathetic, boring, overstuffed, pompous, thoroughly unpleasant little twerp to last me three lifetimes.

No, what we are discussing here is James Cameron, and his derivative heap of bullshit that he had the supreme gall to call Avatar. Now, it's not the title itself that annoys me - it fits with the premise, stupid and hopelessly overdone as it is, and at least let's the viewer know what they're in for - what pisses me off is the fact that Jamie-boy and his studio fucks tried to copyright the title of the movie.

They tried to copyright a title. Legally, this should have been impossible; the judge and jury should have laughed this case out of court, publicly mocked whatever dumbass brought the case before them in the first place, and spit in James Ca-moron's face for good measure. But, somehow they actually managed to win; from this, I can only conclude that one of them had some serious blackmail material on various members of the jury or possibly even the judge, or Jamie-boy sucked a lot of dicks before the proceedings.

Now, far be it from me to actually say that someone deserves to be violently gang-raped by distempered bulls, then repeatedly sodomized with Samehada; but... well, there you go.

Jamie-boy, you are a stupid, worthless, talentless, overrated cretin, and I am personally mortified that I ever enjoyed any of your work.

(no subject)

I swear to fucking God, if I see one more of those insipid "Get Ripped Quick" or "I'm Crazy Ripped" ads, I'm going to find a way to leap into the computer, travel down the wired like Servo, and into the home of whatever moronic, annoying retard thought that those were a good idea in any way. Then I shall proceed to rip out their intestines and lynch the little cretin with them.
