Whats your view on the discussion of SOPA and PIPA to censor the internet?
Writing your name can lead to writing sentences. And then the next thing you'll be doing is writing paragraphs, and then books. And then you'll be in as much trouble as I am!

I guess I land on the popular side of the fence. The current language is not acceptable, even IF there's good intentions.
For what it's worth I took Wikipedia's suggestion to contact my senator, despite that doing nil in the past.

This pretty much summarizes my thoughts.

I don't think you'll get much debate on this one. XD Most people here are against both.

What Pup said.
However, if this (SOPA/PIPA) had been introduced when the internet was first becoming popular and all, I might be more in agreement and there probably wouldn't have been so much controversy over it. People wouldn't have known better.
Now, though, I think it's much to late to have introduced these things. The internet is so huge and part of most people's daily lives that it would be silly to remove certain things that are really popular (like Wikipedia, Reddit, YouTube etc) from the cyber-world. It's too late now. And if you want to think of it money-wise, many people are paid for their work with Wikipedia and/or YouTube and so it could potentially take away jobs for some people.
Anyway. My thoughts.

A kid in my journalism class actually dressed up as a pirate for two weeks in protest. The entire group cheered him on. I think that sums it up perfectly.
