    Watch the above quoted video. If you can comprehend that and still tell me there's nothing wrong with SOPA or PIPA, your moral compass needs to be seriously adjusted.

    Not a major requirement? Are you computer literate? If you own software that's been activated too many times, it's MANDITORY you call them unless you wanna go spend another 200 bucks for another license. Seeing as we're in a recession, not too many Americans can just spare 200 bucks whenever.

    It's one persons interpretation. I've had my kids force me to watch this same sort of video created by those who claim that the U.S. was behind 9-11.

    Yes, it's a phone call. That is not a major requirement.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No it's not just one person's interpretation, he was referring directly to the bill itself. It doesn't matter who interprets wording that loose, you'll get a hundred different interpretations all equally evil. Some libertarian you are; you're perfectly fine with the gov. ruining small businesses.

    OH! Looks like ALL of debate politics has to come down now because ONE person linked to a "piracy facilitating site". Genius.

    The sky didn't fall Y2K either. As we've seen, the government can already shut down sites if they wanted to.

    Tell you what, then. Why don't you sit down, carve out a block of time from your schedule (better make it be at least an hour or so), and give ol microsoft a phone call, eh? When's the last time you tried calling any business of a certain size, and actually got ahold of a human, 1, and then, resolved your issue in a timely, NOT put on hold for 30 minutes a time...?

    Because, man, I have not.

    And this bill would substantially lower the bar for them to do so, and also shifts the burden of proof from the prosecutor to the accused.
