    Default Web sites shuting down at midnight

    What do you think about many Web sites shuting down at midnight tonight in protest ?

    I wonder if TerryLove.com will be affected.

    Guess time will tell.

    When I need a precise measurement of something I often use the highly technical method of eyeballing it.

    Yes, it appears they are protesting the fact that agencies are trying to stop "theft" on the web.

    There isn't much that they don't already control. They just keep taking away more and more of our freedoms.

    What's bad is the sponsor of the SOPA bill is a Lamar Smith, a Republican congressman from Texas. At least some of the other co sponsors have dropped off.

    I guess it got a lot of peoples attention, That is a good thing.

    Most People do not realize the good things and freedoms that they have until they are taken away.

    They will need a lot of room to keep people locked up, If something like this ever did pass.

    Guess they will release the Murderers in the prisons to make room for the people that upload a YouTube Video...
