    This doesn't belong in Site Discussion instead of World News because:

    Even if SOPA does get past the Senate on the 21st...
    Even if SOPA does get past the House of Representatives...
    Even if SOPA does get past the White House without veto...
    Even if SOPA does get exercised aggressively...

    Hive isn't the kind of site to have their DNS entry blocked in the first place.

    Hive won't be affected, only silly websites like YouTube, 4chan, maybe social networking sites - the ones nobody ever uses and doesn't care about.

    Because it's not going to be blocked...?

    Look, have you read the actual bill at all?

    I'm not saying the bill should be passed; it shouldn't, but the amount of FUD everyone is spreading about it is counter-productive.

    Heres the thing. Youtube and most of the sites will move to other countries and the US will be screwed.

    I don't think the bill will pass because over 1.07 million people and counting (me include) sign a petition against it.
    TB meant to said "EA" not Activision.

    Dumping the American porn industry? I think most of us can live without the BBW porn.

    Why are you linking a bunch of YouTube videos when you could as well link one of the many online forms one can use to contact their representative in congress?

    http://www.reddit.com/r/sopa - a really good website to research about SOPA and keep updated with the news.

    I think we should keep this thread opened either way.

    Due to supporting SOPA (and PIPA I think), Go Daddy had lost over 72,000 domains.

    Also I starting to think that openly opposing SOPA and PIPA on the hive is a bad idea, i should probably stop doing that.

    ^ I understood that, but I still don't understand why people wouldn't like you doing that.
