I thought yesterday was interesting. 1) All the "censoring" of the internet yesterday. I thought the internet was an open platform and yet I find out I was not allowed to gain information I needed. 2) The main OWS page was also censored with a SOPA message. This was really all about copyright issues. On the right side of the screen was a link to the SOPA info site. The site was Powerd By: some company. When you clicked on the link, at the bottom of the page, the company clearly had their name and a "copyright" notice. So,,,, if they arent wanting to monitor the internet for copyright violations, why would they want to post their own "copyright" notice? 3) Those darn Republicans for introducing the original SOPA Bill. Dont you just hate those stupid republicans for doing that? (((( OOOoppppps sorry, I was just informed it was two of your very famous Liberal Democrats in congress that wanted to cause YOU all the problems.))) Interesting on how all that works,,, doesnt it? OWS censored 1/18/2012

You're being deliberately obtuse; the point of the blackouts yesterday was to give everyone a taste of what can happen when you decide that anybody and their mother can force access to a site or page to be barred without any sort of due process (which is basically how SOPA would wind up working). Didn't like it much, now did you?

Today your FBI made the biggest bust in history, the world feel anger towards your nation, and I cant even read it on your national newschannels. Maybe they don´t know how to bring you the news yet.

Imagine a World Without Free Knowledge

For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia. Learn more.

SOPA is all about govt control of the intenet. It's about the govt controlling what information you can and cannot have.

What? Government control? I thought you all wanted to raise the debt, grow the government and support democrats in congress like the Leahy and Dodd? Seems like SOPA would be another perfect government example of personal intrusion.

HELP! Protect our movie stars in Hollywood. Help them so people will not pirate their movies. We need rich liberal movie stars to look down at us and pat us on the head. Support SOPA and save a movie star.

Oddly, they want no governmental control over the internet, yet more governmental control over private property.

I was not thinking about me I was thinking about you. I know how much "The Man" censors you OWS folks and yesterday all I saw was censorship at a level I have never seen before and it seems like YOU LOVED the censorship. Kinda strange how you people think.

Yesterday was all about Solidarity and NOT "censorship". Your mischievous and wilful confusion is unbecoming if Not revealing !! Try the link above &/or http://occupywallst.org/forum/sopa-will-take-us-back-to-the-dark-ages-by-lance-u/ !

I could have sworn many sites were censored and down. I must have been mistaken. What did you post on the OWS, "non-censored" site yesterday? My OWS didnt allow me to READ posts, but yours did? Tell me.

i had the same situtation regarding posts.

[+] -5 points by shadz66 (17822) 2 years ago

I did not post or read anything other than the SOPA information nor do I think that it was even possible to do anything else on this forum yesterday & so I've no idea what you're talking about. Perhaps you're being mischievous again ...

[-] -1 points by FreeDiscussion1 (109) 2 years ago

All you did yesterday was read SOPA information? You must be really fun at a party.
