about an hr ago the twitter link i posted had 124k followers, it now has 167k and climbing all the time, so whatever happens in the future, the actions of the government are speeding up the bringing together of people.

And they rightly should as they would be willing to do the same in reverse. It's called karma.

I look forward to the government making this stuff illegal! Look what they did with drugs and pot! Thats right, as soon as it was illegal it became the BIGGEST industry in the world!

Everyone has an Iphone or something now. all we need is a program like BUMP for movies and music and you got free trade, or trade for services or whatever.

Hey buddy! Yah you! have you got the new spiderman movie? No! Well I can give it to your iphone for $2.00, or really, you don't want it, well hows about the other 29 million other files I have? $2.00 each or I'll trade you for some drugs!

Yup, they done stepped in it now!

This is just proof that trying to take down a site on the Internet is like trying to kill a Hydra. Cut off 1 head and 3 more appear. Even if it's not run by the same people, looks like Megaupload is still kicking!

you think them making this illegal will stop it?
all there gonna do is push it underground where its gonna breed a new generation of cyber criminal and when they arise it wont just be music/dvds/games there after

push all this back to the deep web and i assure you this will do more damage than good for the powers that be

and if you know not what the deep web is
my points allready proven

If anything this is a real life scenario of what would happen if SOPA was passed. A whole site blocked (in this case taken offline) and thousands of paying customers out of cash they won't ever get back.

I don't agree with the actions Anonymous is taking because it does more harm than good to the cause of keeping the internet open and free.

I don't agree with the numbers they are putting forth in terms of how much money they are losing. It seems like a gross exaggeration.

The RIAA and MPAA want their piracy bill and they are using this as a shot across the bow, and what should be done instead of attacking government sites for upholding the law, is use this as an example of what the internet would look like if SOPA passed.

I'm fully in favor of the OPEN act that has been presented in Congress as that bill will stop extreme actions such as this.

I never said that I think them making it illegal will stop it. I actually said the opposite to that! They will make it a monster that will never be stopped, just like drugs!

War on terror/war on drugs/war on crime!

Every time a government makes a war out of something, they only end up making it the hugest industry in the world! Now we got a War on the Internets and piracy!

Good job government, you have just declared yet ANOTHER WAR! Lets see how long till you win that one, something that BILLIONS of people do every day and feel it is a right to do so!

Every time a government candidate mentions WAR on anything, they should be disregarded and laughed at right out of politics!

This is just sad. Who exactly asked for this SOPA bullsh*t? The people, or the corporate government? Wake up world, you're nothing but cattle to the powers that be and the last thing on earth they want for you is freedom of information. God forbid you properly educate yourself and realize you're really just a glorified pet

no problems! It takes more than that to get under my skin. I just feel that in some way, this is all going according to plan. Like a plan to make everything entertainment wise free for some reason. Cause that is all they are going to do. I've seen this happen so many times, and every time the problem just gets 10x worse (or better) depending on who is looking at it!

hope this imbed works. Anyways, Now I am not a HUGE fan of theyoungturks at all, but this guys closing statement on WHAT SOPA is all about "TELLS YOU WHAT SOPA IS ACTUALLY ALL ABOUT" This will surprise you and inform you about the real reason behind SOPA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watch this now so you too can see what you thought you knew about SOPA!!!!
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY! always has been, and always will be!

sadly for goverment this problem wont just go away now as there sites will be bombarded every day every week
if enuff hacktivists jump in this could do the us powers that be some serious damage as no system can sustain constant bombardment eventually its gonna give
lets hope the DOD and other agencys have sufficent protection as there gonna need it as soon the big guns are coming to wade into this argument and when that happens well its not going to be pretty
