    Easier to send videos and junk through FB. I just recently got a video sent to me in my messages through FB from one of my kids from over there opening up my presents.

    That aside, seems most use phone e-mail for things over there. They don't do SMS junk much. You can only do so much space wise with a phone.

    Just found this page that shows everyone in congress who currently opposes and supports SOPA:

    http://projects.propublica.org/sopa/

    It's scary how much bipartisan support this thing is getting, and it's even scarier how there is currently 80 supporters and only 29 opponents.

    I think all of the websites in the entire internet should go black for a single day to protest this SOPA crap!!! That would certainly get the message across to the bureaucratic dimwits in D.C.!!

    Well, the Obama Administration has expressed their opposition against the bills and that twat Rupert Murdoch has bashed them for siding with us "Pirates" (which is not that far off really).

    But only time will tell whether or not the support of the Administration and the Blackout will work. Because I won't be on at all on the 18th.

    I like how individual YouTube and Facebook accounts are doing it... like that'll make a difference.

    Not to mention that facebook itself is supposed to go offline. If the whole site goes offline, what any individual does is completely irrelevant.

    While google had thrown their hat in the ring earlier, there's no word as to whether or not they're really going through with it now.
    ...And if they do, there's no word as to whether they will do it with all their properties (like youtube, blogger, etc) or just google itself, or what.

    Exactly.

    It'd be much more an impact if the site was blacked out in its entirety
