As an avided eve online player I would like to bring somthing to your attention that has me very troubled.

The US Congress is currently considering passing two bills into law that would effectively censor the internet in the US, makeing it possible to block sites via there domain names without trial or even telling the owners of the website that they're being blocked or as to why. This is supposedly to combat piracy, witch i'd potentially be in favor of if the methodology actually worked, but pirates can easily get around such measures.

You may be asking your self how dose the pertain to me. Well just a few "infringing" links would be enough to block a site full of legal material, and sites become liable for user-posted content. so say someone post's a "infringing" link onto your fourm this would be more then enough to block all of the offending site to the US.

We CAN'T let this happen we need to stop this bill at all costs but we can't do it alone we need your help.
please I beg of you to help spread the word and stop this bill form passing. Not in the us? Petition the state department, The US state department constantly speaks out against internet censorship in other countries. Pressure them to speak out against America’s new domestic censorship system. ( to Petition the state department use this link )

I have put some links for the STOP SOPA movement.

thank you for your time.

Fewer Americans online would improve the lag situation when they all login to UK servers. I would support SOPA just for that alone Twisted

Seriously though, censorship of any kind or description should be fought at all costs.

Come on my American cousins, lobby your politicians to defeat these laws.
