    Hey guys,

    Enjoying the blackout as much as I do?

    I hear 'ya. Mad

    Here's what all the fuss is about...




    Look it up...this thing is real. It's a great threat to all public information portals (like our forum, Wikipedia, hell even Google...). So guys...get on the Interwebs and make your voices heard!

    >>>FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE!<<<

    Thanks for helping to spread the word about these terriable bills before congress. Of course it meant I actully had to get some work done instead of perusing this site but a small price to pay. I better stop now before this turns in to a long rant.

    All these bills are written by politicians who are all lawyers who know nothing but how to sue people. I have lawyer friends and I can assure you that I wouldn't want them running this country. All lawyers know is how to take from one to give to another, whether it be money, taxes, or rights. Ask any lawyer what they know about crossbows or anything else for that matter. I breed hedgehogs here on Long Island and they are illegal in NYC. Maybe lawyer/polititians seem to think that they may be a threat to the safety of the public. Thank the teachers union and the leftists for this nanny state mentality we are heading toward. Well, that's my rant for tonight.

    Hey guys,

    Yep, we were supporting! Very Happy ...As well as the Russian forums, they spread the word in their parts too and protests went down in "MATHA RASHA!!!" same as in US. Smile

    Same here, I knew about this from the very beginning, but only acted when I saw that it actually needed our help. Normally I'm trying to keep as much political stuff off the forum as possible, but there are laws going out right now that are absolutely ridiculous. These Bills that we went against are just scratching the surface of whats going down right now, so definitely do your homework and stay on guard. Thanks for participating! cheers Aaaand to those who quit the Arbalist guild because we were participating in this thing...well lets just say - "Have a Good Day". Razz

    Spot on man!



    There were, however, Lawyers who opposed and fought against these bills, so we've got to give them credit too - not all lawyers are "same"...still though...do your homework and don't "trust" them. Laughing

    Again, thanks for participating and I hope your situation with hedgehogs changes in time...with right support it will happen, so make your voice heard man. Wink

    Regards,

    Ivo

    PS: Democracy is a great thing...I love it with all my heart...but it is
    also dangerously close to anarchy if we let it be...so again I stress
    that everybody do their homework before supporting or fighting against
    anything that's on the lips of the people or the government. Ivo OUT. SOPA & PIPA Protest  84490
