I'll be happy to see another blackout of importantly used websites such as Wikipedia and Google. That's ultimately what made supporters of SOPA turn around and go against it last time.

If you guys really want to see the bill(s) defeated, call, write, or email your congressmen!

That's the real purpose of these blackouts.

^ Apparently, most congressmen are writing back with generally dismissive letters, ignoring their message entirely.

I think a better message is to vote them out entirely and get some fresh blood in politics. Too many old, tired men.

Also, Ron Paul for president, Rand Paul for vice president. America = Fixed.

I agree with Northern49, we need to get rid of all our politicians or lower their pay so that only people who are gunna look out for us take the job. We don't need to give more power to the government than we already have.

Why does it seem like anything pro anti-privacy equates "privacy" as having skeletons in the closet, and not as a protection of natural rights? Anyway, I am in full support of another blackout. I'm sure plenty of people are against CISPA.

The problem is that for some people anonymus is a joke, and on the other hand the US likes to ignore the sovergin part of each nation.

I am in full support of the blackout, even I am going to take part. No one should be allowed to control the Internet, as no-one owns it.

Internet = Essential bloodline of myriad societies in the 21st century. If someone take that out for a great amount of time, we'd be we living in the 2013 B.C.E again.

I'm all for it. It's probably gonna happen anyway, hopefully it makes an impact rather than the site being hacked then being up in a day or two.

Its getting really ridiculous how every time theres a new anti-piracy or security measure to make the internet "safe" (good luck) it always seems to involve treating the end user like a common criminal. Nobody likes having their privacy invaded in the real world so what makes them think its ok in the cyber world, huh? I'm all for this, theres no harm in trying after all.

Its interesting how originally the idea behind our government was to serve and represent the people yet most of the decisions seem to be from a "we know whats best, you can thank us later" point of view. Unfortunately, just because we vote someone out doesn't mean someone just as bad won't take their place either.

just one of the many hands trying to help their way into the cookie jar of the social networking business.

i don't understand why they shouldn't? half the (under)world is doing it illegally already. let the states use it for other nefarious needs for a change instead of the usual, the internet will always be the same corrupt diseased gather place for sexual entertainment and shady activity

Let me play devil's advocate for a moment. Why do we expect privacy when we are giving personal information to other people? I post on this site, use Gmail, etc. with the understanding that I'm using someone else's servers, and since I'm not paying these services to protect my data I can't complain if they give it to someone else. For a real world example, if I hand my friend a diary I shouldn't be surprised if they read it or show it to someone else, say the police if I'm arrested.
