Should be real world

Should be real world consequences to those who support the bill, and especially those who are the authors of the bill, those who are bringing it through, shame and name ( im imagining luke from wac, consistantly hounding the author/s.......for starters, the main course if you will :D..

......otherwise like others have already said, you'll only be fighting the same fight later.......

..well, lets get through this one, before i get ahead of myself, but if you reach a similar position in protest like you guys so brilliantly did the last time, you gotta demand more, you gotta tell them your sick and tired of fighting against a bill, only for that bill to turn up again later, none of us find that particularly amusing, infact thats a great way to.......(insert opinion)

Alert the people as much as you can, far and wide

(Thank you Garan)

Per the logs, my domain name home page is the one receiving the most hits, as an entry point for visitors mostly coming from Linkedin, and towards my boring stuff.

Now, I'm going to share also on Linkedin, precisely, and Twitter.

God Help Us alert enough people before too late.

In a War of Attrition, getting you Tired is their Strategy

That's why you can't get tired.
Adapt and educate.

This time around, there are sites which have prepared for this.
Each time, people of the internet can get better and better at getting heard and being better represented.

I would recommend signing up to a reputable site for future updates.

Also, privacy technology is becoming more and more mainstream and can be an interesting to learn about.
The government and special interests ultimately can't control information technology and digital privacy. The most they can do is make the internet more difficult to use for the general user, and unfortunately, create some victims.

If we try to fight all the battles at the same time, we lose them all. Take heart, I'm monitoring the situation and can assure you, many groups are specializing in fighting this battle. God Bless Aaron Swartz. RIP.

I wouldn't make that a general rule.

This fight takes about 30 seconds out of each contributors day.
So, I doubt that would compete with any other efforts a person has.

I have to say, I have a bone in me that resists placation when it comes to action verses inaction.
So, for the sake of not holding people back, I wouldn't be too reassuring.

If you can share some of the things you are monitoring, that would be appreciated.

The Internet Defense League provides a banner

The Internet Defense League provides banner code for websites, if you are interested. ;)

They have a 'Get the Code' button on their main page.

I probably won't be able to get to that until late tonight.

Thank you for the info.

Forgive me for rearranging your post a little. I put the banner up at the top, so it would be more readily visible. And I fixed the 'send a message' link to the eff. It wasn't clickable (you forgot the closing quote in the href). And I bolded it for effect. And I bumped it to the front page.

Looks good. Thanks. (Good moderation)

I wasn't sure if I was toeing a line with posting and promoting a logo.

It was a genuine expression, so I hope it's viewed that way.

Cheers.
