    I don't know anything about sopa, but i'm just kinda interested and got a question.

    Will sites like youtube/google get shutdown?

    Doubtful. Just regulated extremely to the point where copyrighted videos or certain imagery can't be shared.
    If those places were to get shut down I'm sure it would only be temporary.

    The most awesome way to explain SOPA:



    Seriously, worth watching, even if you think you know the basic concept.

    Lol Google wouldn't let that happen. With the amounts of money they make, they can't afford to have some shit like that happen. I don't think it'll be passed if it were to shut down some of the most popular sites down. Fuck that shit. These nig's crazy.

    It won't shut down Google / Facebook / Etc, nor will everything be monitored that you post. I'm pretty sure .COM/.NET/.ORG domains are exempt from it, because they are already owned by the USA.

    It won't shutdown any site, per se. It shuts down American traffic to those sites and American advertising companies from putting ads, which in some cases can kill a site. It is essentially acts like a school proxy and blocks outside access to it (of course there are ways to get around it).

    But it got shelved, which may or not be permanently, but we still got to battle the lesser evil one PIPA coming up soon. Some sites are going up in protest on the 18th, I believe MPGH will also be shutting down to join them.

    --------------------------

    If you feel so strongly against it, write to your congressman. I haven't yet. I'll be waiting till MPGH is down, hopefully we will have a splash page showing how to contact your congressman with a pre-written letter. I'll coordinate that with Dave tomorrow.

    The white house seems to be going against it too, so we might have luck on our side this time around. Hopefully no scumbag supporter gets the nominee for this years election.

    MPGH ain't getting shut down, we do nothing illegal .





    THE EYE OF AN ADMINISTRATOR IS UPON YOU. ANY WRONG YOU DO IM GONNA SEE, WHEN YOU'RE ON MPGH, LOOK BEHIND YOU, 'CAUSE THATS WHERE IM GONNA BE

    IT means we are going to end up like china excluded from the world

    sopa is the first few steps to Communism. so much for the red scare, it seems like the Us wants Communism now

    i really dont believe that this will ever pass... but if it does... that means some people get to test out real hacking skills

    Sites you browse daily,could be blocked.
    Email providers may be forced to censor certain links you send or receive.
    The links you share on social networks such as facebook will be closely monitored and possibly censored.
    This basically explains it
