I'm just wondering if a internet censorship bill will be created and enforced soon. They could shutdown sites like this make it impossible to be anonymous on the internet. Just looking for peoples thoughts on this.

Seriously? Have you been paying attention at all?

Stewart Lawley has kicked off the .XXX top level domain, and several nations have already vowed to block it. It's feared that all adult sites will one day be forced into changing to a .XXX or go out of business.
Then the service providers can split traffic, forcing people to pay for full internet access and be on a "register".

Most of the adult industry is against it, but there are a couple of big names who are in bed with Lawley and promoting it. It's forced thousands of Universities and other institutions to pay extortionate fees just to prevent their names from being used for an adult site.

Some think it's a long-term conspiracy to get all .XXX sites in one ghetto, for governments around the world to enforce draconian censorship and wipe out adult business on the net entirely.

Lawley is making millions from it, and there are stories of webmasters being blackmailed into buying their domains, which cost 10 x more than a .com

This is just one example of how the internet is being manipulated and controlled by big business and government. And I would certainly urge all to get behind ANY restrictions or potential damage to the freedom of the net.

You think it's a conspiracy to get rid of porn?...

I think the elites would prefer us to be obsessed with porn instead of thinking of higher intellectual concepts and what's REALLY going on in the world. Sexual obsession is a great distractor.

This is just one of the many pieces of the puzzle. The New World Order is accelerating, it's really scary how fast things are progressing. The Repeal-The-4th-Amendment Act and the TSA were just the beginning. Now we have the military about to be engaging in Martial Law, and they'll be legally allowed to imprison American citizens without a charge or trial. If anybody is a threat to the NWO in whatever way, they can be "disappeared", black-bagged like in V For Vendetta and thrown in a dungeon to rot for the rest of their lives.

Not only that, but any information that goes against the agenda can be suppressed by SOPA. The criteria for "rogue websites" is anything that qualifies as containing copyright infringement, but that can literally be a blog post with a link to what somebody calls "copyrighted" material.

All forms of communication are being spied on, the military will soon be able to disappear anybody who goes against the agenda, and any information that doesn't go along with it can be suppressed. It really is accelerating...

This 20 minute video describes the dangers of SOPA:

Wouldn't they rather have all of us kept preoccupied with all of the cool distractions and head lines on sites such as this one. We're all fiercely debating over whether or not that shiny light, which was probably nothing more than a flashlight on a projector screen, is a UFO. If they terminate websites like this, we might actually be banding together and discussing ways to fight this corrupt system. We can't have that happening, now can we?
