…With the passage of legislation censoring the Internet, the battle to stop the barbarian at the gate has only just begun. The purveyors of offensive material will continue their quest to make their material available; in all likelihood the CDA will prove to only be a minor inconvenience. The opponents of on-line censorship have moved on to the next battle field, the court room.(193) The only one leaving the field of battle will be Senator Exon, who announced, prior to introducing his CDA, that he would be among the stampede of Democrats retiring from the Senate this year…

… On June 11, 1996, a three-judge panel in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania found that the Communications Decency Act violated the First Amendment of the United States Constitution…

On February 1, 1995, Senator James Exon (D-Neb.) attempted to do what had never been done before—regulate speech on the Internet.(3) Introducing the Communications Decency Amendment (CDA), Senator Exon declared a danger to society: Barbarian pornographers are at the gate and they are using the Internet to gain access to the youth of America. Senator Exon proclaimed:
The information superhighway should not become a red light district. This legislation will keep that from happening and extend the standards of decency which have protected telephone users to new telecommunications devices.

Once passed, our children and families will be better protected from those who would electronically cruise the digital world to engage children in inappropriate communications and introductions. The Decency Act will also clearly protect citizens from electronic stalking and protect the sanctuary of the home from uninvited indecencies.(4)

The green links or left docket numbers bypass PACER and cost nothing.
You can pay to compare them if you wish.

(5:09-cv-05151) docket of case obviously ruled wrongly and now appealed.
289 docket entries. Left numbers are the free copies.
(11-2558) docket of the PENDING appeal of what is 2 + 2 ?
^^ Will likely await pending FCC v Fox, (10-1293) in the summer.

This litigation is NOT secret.

Oh really? You think? “Internet” censorship will be about unregulated display of my nude art by wire communications against my wishes before my Federal lawsuit against GOOG is over. When 47 U.S.C. §151 is obeyed as written, ALL 47 U.S.C. §153 ¶52 wire communications will be regulated by the FCC as required. My nudes will still be allowed by wire but not to the anonymous anymore. POOF!

The laws that are on the books must be followed as written regardless of past confusion of the Courts and Congress when the obvious is pointed out clearly as has just been done by me in Federal Court filings.

I may have to do or fight a Supreme Court appeal before it is enforced but it is decided. 2 + 2 = 4 POOF

@Porn is not accessible for more of the internet wires on Earth than can see America’s pornternet The same porn shown in the United States is NOT shown in Europe, China, or elsewhere by search engines.

That is so full of BS I don’t even want to waste my time replying. It is REALLY easy to fool search engines…

@You are not the least bit anonymous while connected to wires anywhere on Earth.

You are from many prying eyes! Why the hell else would authorities have to try to force privacy providers to turn over surfing information (which many don’t keep)?

curtis neeley site:deviantart.com – via the GOOG porn engine. Filter as you wish it won’t help.
I have demanded they stop this for over three years!

jpg site:curtisneeley.com – See GOOG after demanded that GOOG and MSFT not rebroadcast my site.

jpg site:curtisneeley.com on MSFT is EMPTY as demanded!
MSFT will still going to face me in US Courts.

See the deviantart site without adult filtration bypassed.

The pornternet ends very soon!

At least you are trying to think logically. When the proposed 47 U.S.C. §232 passes, the pornternet no longer will exist on Earth at least in the US.

GOOG and MSFT use adult filtration to fool folks like you into supporting the pornternet. It was obviously not very hard to fool those trying to keep the US pornternet around?

Porn is not accessible for more of the internet wires on Earth than can see America’s pornternet The same porn shown in the United States is NOT shown in Europe, China, or elsewhere by search engines. Did you really think that it was? REALLY? You are not the least bit anonymous while connected to wires anywhere on Earth.

ALL wire communications browsers will be required to follow a robots.txt rating system. Allowing minors to access non-FCC-compliant wire communications browsers becomes a crime. The great US pornternet disappears very quickly.

Images can be rated PER FILE now.

Problem with the concept that the unregulated Internet will disappear VERY SOON as you might say. If the United States agrees with you and makes filters for that kind of material, you’re essentially giving leeway to make a filtered version of the Internet… which, hey we’re fighting against all along. You’re asking the US Gov’t to step in and fix a problem which Google and MSFT and other search engines provide and that’s to give censored results in its search engines. The other problem is that the “unregulated Internet” will still be around as hey, the US can only rule here in the US. If the US makes a ruling, but say the UK doesn’t… you can’t sue the United Kingdom… Unless you have a dual citizenship somewhere, then Foreign Sovereignty still applies. The FCC cannot regulate what is show outside the borders of the United States as their own mandate applies they can only regulate North America. So your so called “Pornternet” can still exist.

I doubt that ANY site you mentioned was unable to load. “Anonymous” is just a bunch of unhappy nerds mourning the fact that the utterly unregulated Internet will disappear VERY SOON! It has existed unregulated due entirely to malfeasance of the FCC. The FCC is failing to regulate ALL wire communications including subscription cable television as required since 1934. After the Supreme Court allows the FCC to fine Fox and CBS for inappropriate television broadcasts by radio the Supreme Court will back an Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals order that the FCC regulate ALL wire communications from subscription television by wire communications to internet wire communications. The Supreme Court will back the Eighth Circuit Court ruling that the copy[rite] act has been unconstitutional since enacted in 1790 and forbid display of inappropriate art to the unauthenticated or unidentified. The Robots Exclusion Protocol will also be made statutory and required to be used.

Anonymous And The War Over The Internet

Late in the afternoon of Jan. 19, the U.S. Department of Justice website vanished from the Internet. Anyone attempting to visit it to report a crime or submit a complaint received a message saying the site was unable to load. More websites disappeared in rapid succession. The Recording Industry Association of America. The Motion Picture Association of America. Universal Music. Warner Brothers. The FBI…

I was waiting for a big news outlet to finally talk about this story HuffPost did. It is well known in some places on the web. There was a lot more than just all of the sites that joined together to participated in the blackout that caused Congress, and others, to back down quick on SOPA and PIPA. A little mentioned, but very real cyber war was waged in many ways…

I also read a very good article today in a CT paper about how former Senator Chris Dodd was hired to push SOPA through, even though that is illegal for him to do until 2013. It is not online yet, but I will post it when it is

Of course Dodd will not comment to the CT media hammering him now…

Internet wire communications users think these bills needed to be passed to work. SCOTUS ruled the Berne Convention selected by Congress in 1994 is the authority on copy[rites] and ruled this constitutional and not disturbing free speech or anything else. See Golan v Holder, (10-545)

p12 REPLY BRIEF <<<<

“3. The sweeping international impact of this case will, no doubt, require further consideration of the relevant issues but several factual issues will require trial. The Supreme Court will eventually be faced with requiring wire communications disguised as the Internet to be regulated by the FCC. This injunctive relief requested currently from the Eighth Circuit will, in fact, increase the Free Speech nature of wire communications as well as making wire communications more internationally accessible.”
