It seems that exactly the thing that many in this thread predicted is happening: Whining on OCN but not doing anything.
In the spirit of your comment.

Contact your state representative

This should be a sticky.

You'd think that every American on OCN would want to stop this...guess not.

Kind of like the "Net Neutrality; Who Cares?" article I posted?

It's that 90% of the world is either too lazy or too busy (same thing), this is why 10% of the people in the world make all the money...

A classic tale of the hare and the turtle...

And I hear that castration is a good way to stop unwanted pregnancy, but who wants that either?

I wonder if this Castro fellow has any relatives living down in Cuba...

As people have been asking that we contact our representatives about this, here your go.


Contact your state representative
Yeah.... No..

I'm going to assume that wasn't a attack at Fidel Castro or Raul.... and continue smiling.

well this is an example of people not being interested in politics/voting. I always see people whining and complaining the govt but sitting and doing nothing. 40% of voters in america actually vote. write to your reps, become more politically active, vote, and do something about it. the government does stuff like this because we DONT keep them in check.
Ok, when I first read this I literally lol'd.

Nice percentage there, there is a problem with it however.

YOU CAN'T BE A VOTER, WITHOUT VOTING.

HERP DERP.

OK OK OK problem here for me... I bought a freakin' server (see sig rig ATM) for the (almost) SOLE PURPOSE of TORRENTING LEGAL LINUX DISTROS (and hosting a Minecraft server...) does this mean I gotta pay 10 grand a month just to feel good about WMG raking in more stacks?

Dear congressmen and women, would you kindly limit everybody's freedom for the sake of profit?

I do and agree with everything you said there. It just seems as if america is moving backwards with the internet when other countries are advancing, the way i see it is that the internet is pretty much everything these days especially with all these new cloud based things emerging. Putting data caps on it is a terrible idea just like securom.
