If SOPA passes, the following sites could be blocked for US users:
- The Pirate Bay
- Almost any forum site
Even if you aren’t from the United States, it would be amazing if you would reblog this to let the followers you have that are from here what’s going on.
You guys this is pretty fucking serious. Please all of my followers reblog this link and spread it around as much as you possibly can. The tl;dr of that link is that this is essentially a US Bill that is being proposed that could essentially give the government the ability to shut down all of our social networking in an effort to ‘stop piracy’. This is a very horrible horrible thing, please if you can sign the petitions, send emails, make phone calls, write letters please if you live in the United States, do something. If this bill somehow manages to pass by next year it’s possible that tumblr, 4chan, facebook, twitter, formspring anything that you hold dear on the internet that has the possibility of sharing files or information can and will be shut down completely. There’s no way to proxy around it either.
If anything else PLEASE REBLOG this at LEAST. Thank you for your time…
So yeah all those nice little “Download Masterposts” on Tumblr?
This bill would give the government the ability to take Tumblr down over it.
I’ve known about this for a while now, and the horror doesn’t really go away. At all. We need to take this shit down. Now.
Please, just get out of there!
As U.S. prepares to leave Iraq, Iran’s shadow looms large: As the last U.S. troops pack up to leave Iraq by the end of next month, Pentagon officials and senior military commanders are warning that Iran will rush to fill a power vacuum created by the American exit unless Washington limits its pullback from the region. They are recommending several moves in response, including shifting some of those troops to Kuwait.
