    I'd be honestly surprised if GBAtemp did it. There's no real point...and I don't think it'd really affect anyone. And anyone who comes here likely will visit Google or Wikipedia sometime today too, so...I dunno...if it was up to me, I would but...it's not.

    To top it off, many people here have had a solid dose of SOPA news, and exactly what it is / would do. There is no reason for GBAtemp to go down as part of the blackout. None at all.

    There is literally no point, everyone knows about SOPA now, it's plastered all over the web.

    I think he is talking about gbatemp censoring certain words. The "Anonymous" video is part of his signature.

    If this is the case, I entirely agree that gbatemp needs to quit acting so jesus church kid friendly, yet allow furry eroticism in signatures/profile pics (I have absolutely nothing against such, just pointing it out.)

    No wait, he's probably talking about the front page. But I still think gbatemp should let people talk.

    If I can't talk about forcing my dick into the anus of a homosexual and/or black person with stunted intelligence here, then why should I even stick around?



    Give me a fucking break, people.
    The very few words we do censor aren't necessary to get your point across.
    They're usually the tools of uncreative and deliberately asinine trolls.

    I do not understand your suggestion. Are you suggesting that I would actually say such a thing about actually raping someone, let alone someone specifically black, let alone someone specifically gay, let alone specifically a man, let alone a differently abled person ? I have no such tendencies, I've never been racist in these forums, I've never been homophobic in these forums, I've never joked about r@pe, I mearly use the word to convey mafeasense. I have no idea how you concocted such a thought.

    I call blatant prejudice against Tourette's sufferers. Let's protest.

    All I did was take (nearly) every word we censor here and mention it in a vague way.
    Wasn't suggesting you would make such a comment,
    but it seems rather ridiculous that people would gripe about that handful of words that aren't allowed.
    Especially when people from nearly all walks of life can agree that they're patently offensive.
