got this in an email bout the censoring thing -_-.. i still cannot believe this is happening.. hell is wrong with the US?
it pretty much reads
"Last week there was a small meeting at Mozilla to discuss SOPA, the Internet Censorship Bill.
It was eerie. The DC groups were practically screaming “this bill is the worst we’ve seen, and we can’t stop it” — while everyone else barely heard it. The consensus? We needed to wake people up.
Well, this week the internet woke up. *You* woke the internet up.
Tumbler Users called their representatives. SOPA was trending tweet in the U.S. and between the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Avazz, and Demand Progress (groups that are just now working together!) we sent Congress over 1,000,000 emails.
The scary part? We still might lose. Though growing fast, our coalition still isnt strong enough.
The bill is backed by an unholy alliance of Hollywood, its unions, drug companies, and the Chamber of Commerce. They are pouring money into it and they’ve been working on this for years. Yesterday, big players like Tumblr, Mozilla, Reddit, BoingBoing, and even 4chan came out strong on our side. Now its your turn.
We’ve got to dig in and go viral”
Smh.. this is crazy
