Forums to Go Offline January 18th

SITE OUTAGE ALERT

Tomorrow (or today, for some of our members), January 18th, our forums will be taken offline from 8:00am EST to 8:00pm EST as we support the fight against the proposed SOPA and PIPA laws in the US Congress. We will be joining thousands of other websites, including Wikipedia and Reddit, to help protect our Internet freedoms.

If you can't wait for us to come back online, our Facebook page will still be available to talk with everyone!

Thanks for understanding.

Dave

Thanks, Dave! You have my full support on this, I'm glad "we're" joining the protest. For those that haven't, contact your local representatives and tell them not to support these bills

I didn't know a thing about it untill the notice the night before. I did some research on it and according to what I read Obama has already told them they're wasting there time, because there's no way he'll okay it. So i'm not too worried (still a little though), but still the whole thing ticks me off. I nearly went insane yesterday.

I was very happy to see the Talk Network participate in the blackout. Even though Obama won't approve this, the bill is still in the Senate. It seems that both democrats and republicans oppose this bill for the most part, but still, you never know...this bill would be so detrimental to growth in technology, small businesses and more.

Yeah it would detrimental and quite frankly in my opinion it would take away most of our freedom on the internet and cut us off from vital information. Not to mention the ways people would abuse it. I think they should go after people that pirate stuff and sell it, but not this way. We shouldn't all be punished for it. Just my opinions though .

Absolutely, Shannon! I think the bill initially had good intentions. Piracy is no good and should be stopped, but this bill goes way beyond that. Freedom of speech would for certain be affected in a negative way.
