I don’t buy the conspiracy theory but I do find it hilarious that CBS may have created their own enemy. :P

OK, I watched that video. It was interesting in many ways. Back in the day of my young, old age, I used much of that software, then quickly learned to use aftermarket versions of it. The malware to download on those places was crazy.

Though I know Cnet/ZDnet is huge business, and I rarely look to them for good advice anymore, why did they publish that article I posted above?

Hell…most of us know big money just about runs this country now, but too many pieces just don’t fit with that puzzle.

To say that all those named in that video are all in on it together with government in a conspiracy is like saying it is almost hopeless now.

I followed the early legal battles between file sharing and their enemies.

The format of that video seems to be…marketing their videos too…

I did learn a few things from it though.

Maybe we should file a lawsuit to enforce this too (^_~)

… I knew a guy in high school who was delusional. He would constantly tell people that he’d done things like mastered diamond cutting in three weeks, was a professional alien hunter, and was a former member of N*Sync.

You’re sounding a lot like that guy.

THANK you. >_> Seriously. It drives me nuts when some parent says they need to censor television/books/comics/the internet because they’re too damn lazy to do some parenting and police their own children.

Well, that and some ordinary people wondering how the hell they wound up on a ship in the first place. :P A lot of these guys are pissed at the Chamber of Commerce because they never did support SOPA in the first place and don’t know why on earth they wound up on that list.

And further, who is responsible for regulating children in any place, anywhere?

A federal agent?

But I’ll just say The Internet Fights Back :)

Your—very insane—quotes: “I could build a search engine easily surpassing GOOG[LE],” “Google Inc will face me before the Supreme Court,” and “SOPA will be entirely irrelevant once my federal lawsuit resolves.”

Dude, whatever you’re smoking, I want none. haha You are so delusional it’s really not even funny. And with your last statement, you revealed that you are: A) working for the RIAA; B) working for the government; C) in bed with either; D) all of the above. Any answer is the right one. :)

The simple overarching fact is that this bill is already sinking to the bottom of the metaphorical ocean. You’ve got previous supporters like GoDaddy and Gibson Guitar who are jumping ship so maybe you should jump ship, too. But please, for our sake, DON’T wear a life vest. hahaha

Google Inc and others have faced me in United States District Court and now face me before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Google Inc will face me before the Supreme Court eventually. I have talked to Senators and Representatives already. SOPA will be entirely irrelevant once my federal lawsuit resolves and the FCC begins to REGULATE Internet wire communications content.

I already declined settling and will NOT settle and allow unregulated Internet wire communications to exist! Absolutely no amount of money will buy me off and if I die there are others who will continue my lawsuit.

Went to school before “middle schools” were invented though not in the days of one-room schools. Yahoo does not have an image search and is FOR SALE as lost cause.

I could build a search engine easily surpassing GOOG with user-definable search algorithms and will if needed and give it away! Have a Merry Christmas and celebrate the LAST Christmas with unregulated Internet wire communicatopms.

Did you fail reading comprehension in middle school? I wrote it as plain as day: no one cares what YOU propose. Last I checked, Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo! didn’t call CurtisNeeley up to ask for your sage advice or what you propose because again, no one cares what YOU propose. Get it? haha Geez, it’s like talking to a wall.

But of course, Google and the other corps do care about what SOPA will do. Which is why we want to stop it, So again, learn to read: no one cares what YOU propose but we all care to end SOPA. Get it? Now go back to learning how to read before you post.

Your quote: “ALL traffic to violating IPs and POOF; -foreign DNS blocked. Simple.”
My response: No, you’re wrong. As a network engineer, there are lots of others ways to get around firewalls. Hell, how do you think hackers in China get out of their firewalls? Please leave the technical stuff to real experts like me and stop with the bullsh*t OPINIONS. haha

@WasMiddleClass,

Finally a question worth answering among the anonymous whining…

When you buy a cable package that includes movie channels like Cinemax You make sure kids don’t watch MA rated stuff now and are “legally” responsible for “regulating” the PURCHASED porn-lite.

@cadaverousmob,

“Who the hell cares what you propose? haha No one cares!”

Google Inc cares a great deal! Microsoft Corporation, NameMedia Inc, FCC, and the Attorney General care. 2000-3000 anonymous whiners here;- so what? ISPs will be ordered to block ALL traffic to violating IPs and POOF; -foreign DNS blocked. Simple. The Internet is high powered telegraph lines for trafficking in indecent wire communications without requiring responsibility. That ENDS VERY soon.

Here is a link to a video on YouTube, http://youtu.be/WJIuYgIvKsc .Up-loaded by jeepersmedia.
Who is doing what here, this video tells me that the people that want this bill are the one that put the sharing software out there two begin with and helped user’s learn how two use it even put copy writhed files on there sites for user’s two download. So that is what the video charges.
Please go see it send it two others.

A little-noticed section of the Stop Online Piracy Act could make it illegal to distribute Tor and other software that can “circumvent” attempts by the U.S. government to block pirate Web sites

http://news.cnet.com/8301-31921_3-57346592-281/how-sopas-circumvention-ban-could-put-a-target-on-tor/

THERE is a HUGE threat people! It would make all software that protects your privacy illegal! No more VPNs, no more stopping the government, and big corporations from watching everything you do online! No more privacy period!

You can donate some money to FreePress.net using the form at this link:

Please try to donate if you can. This is another step toward getting rid of SOPA, PIPA, and S.978.

Your quote: “I propose…”
Who the hell cares what you propose? haha No one cares! All you’ve been doing is spouting opinion after opinion and no one cares! haha Also, your OPINION about using a foreign DNS is your opinion and no one cares! You don’t seem to get that. Millions of people use VPNs and proxies like Tor, MegaProxy, and Anomos and they find them just fine so the only ridiculous solution is yours!!!!

Again no one gives a d@mn what you propose or what you think. We only care about stopping this heinous and corrupt bill. As of right now, I have 1638 people who agree with me while you only have 14. So go cry a river somewhere else.

CurtisNeeley 12/22/2011 12:30pm

This draft will soon join SOPA as the “favorite hated” proposed statute.
Millions MORE will wonder why it was never already done.

More than 1000 characters…
USC 47 §232 proposed

Makes SOPA completely irrelevant and makes Internet wire communications as safe for children as TV.
