I have a petition in my siggy. I've personally written to my elected officials about this..if you'd like to do the same simply try to look up something on Wikipedia and it will take you to a page where you can punch in your zip code and up will come up how to contact your elected officials via phone, email, etc. You can simply shoot them a short email saying you are against SOPA and PIPA.

Instead of "blacking out" Google just put a dark black box over the logo.

Wikipedia blacked out the other day
Reddit is planning on blacking out as well (or so I've heard)

I think Google should blackout too. I mean, I feel like it would send more of a message if people couldn't use their precious Google. (I know I use it for everything). However it still brings a ton of awareness to what is going on because a ton of people still don't know about it. At least since Google isn't blackout people will question what the logo thing is all about and maybe "google' their curiosities and find out all about SOPA and why it is such a big deal to some people.

And the funny thing is..I KEEP trying to go to Wikipedia like a moron when I KNOW it's blacked out. ROFL! SMDH. Shows how much I love Wiki...even though it's not always accurate. Last night, college kids and school age kids on Twitter were freaking out because many of them had no idea about SOPA and PIPA. Shows how much the youth knows about what's going on...They were TICKED because they needed Wikipedia to complete their homework and it was blacked out!

I first heard about it when someone in Non-hair created a thread about it back in December.
People at my school have been talking about it ever since we got back last week.

That's what I'm saying.

I think it's depressing that so many ppl are do cavalier about this bill.
Like yeah there are greater injustices going on, but umm... How far do you think your efforts to fight those injustices will go if the govt/corporations keep blocking and removing anything that mentions it? B/c they can very well do that...

And lol at folks saying "what's so bad about censorship?!" Just... Stop.
On my EVO. I'm too fancy for proofreading.
ONTD is down. I like to lurk there sometims but becuase of the blackout I cant.

On the plus side, I can start dieting in earnest now that there won't be home cooked food to tempt me all the time.
Probably because I am a musician and so are many of my close friends I see the debate a little differently. This particular bill might be overkill but when you take the time to create something and someone just comes along and rips you off it is hard to swallow. Let me tell you studio time is not cheap. I write songs and have an album and it costs me hundreds of dollars for each song recorded. Thats cheap cuz my guy cut me a break. And you have to pay musicians background singers engineers, and for mastering ect. I dont depend on music for my income but some people I know do. Think about that when you are doing your illegal download. Not every musician is living like MTV Cribs. I also have close friends who dont perform just write. They need royalties for income. No sales. Not much for royalties.

none of this is really relevant to what y'all are talmbout... it just popped into my head

Lloyd? Trey songz? One of them said something like " yeah he did good, I told him, ya gotta get up there, and ya gotta cry...". What the hell? I just can't deal with Chris at all.

Also I'm low key mad that Chris reminds me of bobby from cousin skeeter and the show doesn't come on anymore.

But "natural nazis"???? Why does every argument on the internet have to end with a reductio ad hitlerum? The term just rubs me the wrong way.

And who's this "other group"? (inquiring and drama thirsty minds want to know)

Perhaps it's a little more serious for me because of my background..but I just think likening people that are ballistic about natural hair.."nazis" is very extreme. They aren't carting people off to death camps and seriously denying anyone their right to exist simply because of who they are...they are just a bunch of over zealous advocates of natural hair that down non-naturals in a major way. Hilter and nazis weren't just over zealous or downing people because they didn't agree. They were pure evil to the core and killed millions of inoccent people and still to this days folks are having to deal with the ramifications of that history. Similiar to how blacks in the USA are still dealing with the ramifications of slavery. And I don't think anyone here (at least I hope not) wants to make light of black American history.

I understand to a lot of people..they just think it's "cute" and "funny" to throw out Hilter's name or call folks nazis but in reality some over enthused natural hair zealots are not even remotely comparable. I'm not trying to knock anyone's right to say whatever or put anyone in their place..I'm simply voicing my view on it. No more and no less.

I was able to go to work yesterday cause they plowed, but today they was like f*ck yall. Smh.....
