    It was only a matter of time, eventually one of these bills are going to go through. We should find a deserted island to live on or something.

    Your right on the mark and even If CISPA fails they have others in the works already like The Secure IT Act for example. They are not gonna stop until they get what they want. If your serious about choosing a "bugout" island for when s.h.t.f. I would recommend Belize.

    Am I the only one who's currently just thinking "Leave our internet alone!"?

    This is ridiculous. There's no way on earth this CISPA rubbish will pass especially after how SOPA pretty much died due to its reputation and how it was spread around.

    ACTA is still way worse than both of those though.

    But honestly, this goes against the beneficial uses of the internet. What's the government got to do with what I want to talk about with my friends? I'm personally not really with the whole "everyone's browsing history will be logged and monitored" type of system, even though it already exists in so many countries, especially those where websites are blocked only in that country.

    How long until they can make your computer 'self-destruct' when they don't like what you are doing on the internet?

    Woot Woot for CISPA!

    It's about time the Government do something against piracy and anything related to illegal file sharing and/or other illegally on-line activities. It is because people are granted too much freedom that everything became the way it is today.

    Well, after this comment, this whole thread is going to be blown up into flames and derailed to a trillion other topics.

    I hope you are happy

    No need for people to blown up into flames if you look the other way around.
    The Internet will continue to be free and freedom of speech isn't at debate here LOL.

    Depending on what the government does with the information they gather, it could easily become a freedom of speech thing. Think about it, a simple statement and *boom* arrested or worse. It has happened before, there are still people with black marks on their names for simply "Saying things."

    It already is a freedom of speech issue...

    Honestly, we just need to pass a bill prohibiting any big media companies from having an influence on any part of any government. In my views the greed of Big Media was what set off this whole shebang, blocking them off would kill any future attempts at the root

    If only the government would listen to the small, insignificant puny humans instead of the big, economically driven corporations that permeate into the highest levels of government

    Well, Tigris, as far as I'm concerned, if they wont do so, we will have to literally force them to through "whatever" means possible, no matter what those means can, are, or will be. The only surefire way to kill off something is to remove it's source of substance.

    We dont know that. The only reason SOPA/PIPA were shelved originally is because the USA, and even some other parts of the world stood up against it and fought. If we dont fight, it'll get passed. I don't know how to put that any more bluntly.

    Like we didn't see this one coming. On a related note us British are also being threatened by a new law as well. Although afaik it doesn't have a name as such.

    So you are just going to let the government walk all over you? The only reason the last few bills didn't pass is because we did something about this. If we just sit around with that kinda attitude, then there is a greater chance that this will pass and it will be harder to get rid of then. We shouldn't have to live in a world where our freedom is pressured like this. These bills prove that our government is has no respect for our rights and what we have to say, which means it's time we did something to make them remember why they need us.

    Why does the US insist on putting the fate of the internet on senile old men and idiotic, corrupt dumbasses?

    I mean, really.


    Do we need a repeat of Blackout day to stop this? TAKE A HINT US GOVERNMENT!
