    Home - PubMed - NCBI

    This is an online library that can link people to primary sources. I use Pubmed all the time. I wouldn't trust anything reported by any of the MSM outlets related to medicine or molecular biology without reading the primary publication. Most of them don't understand the science and drastically exaggerate things.

    Actually, its hard to say and I wouldn't be surprised personally if Vauge ended up wanting to bring the site down.

    There's no way we mods can check every link that gets posted to DP, let alone the links that may be linked in said links. I think any website owner would have to examine how much they want to risk the potential for some kind of legal problem if this passes.

    I cannot help but to think about the "what are you listening to" thread. Not just current posts would need to be policed, but past posts would need to be purged. One disgruntled poster and an email to a recording label, and bye bye DP!

    edit: well perhaps not, most of the videos posted there are on youtube, and youtube would likely have closed shop before it came down on DP's head.. but the point still stands (I hope)

    VERY happy to see Paul Ryan and Rand Paul on the "no" list. Expected to see Ron Paul there as he is. I'll give credit to Bachmann as well being on the right side of this. Happy to see one of my senators in Virginia also opposed to it.

    I would seriously miss this site if it had to close because of SOPA. I <3 the site's premise, it's content, and (most) if it's posters. And who the heck else is going to "listen" to me rant about politics and other crap all the time?!

    My rep is "unknown", Cornyn supports it (and loses my vote if he votes for it) and Hutchison is "unknown". All of them received calls and letters from me.

    It appears both of my senators and my representative support SOPA

    Re: Wow! Wiki really is shut down!

    I am putting a letter together for my representative and senators. I haven't sent them yet, and I'm trying to keep it short since no one wants to read a lengthy discussion on the topic. Here's what I have so far:

    Dear ---:


    I am very concerned about my liberty as an American. The current legislation (SOPA), being considered by those who supposedly represent me, is a threat to the First Amendment. Please do not sign SOPA into law. It is a blatant threat to liberty and commerce. Those who support this legislation wish to control information and censor the internet. They wish to do this for their own personal gain. This is not in the interest of the people. Please do not support this law. I also plan to write my representative, Congressman ----, as well as my other senator Lemar Alexander. I truly hope that they will also understand the importance of liberty.


    Thank you,


    Michelle ---
