|Echo, I used to think that's what they're doing too, but most of the amendments to SOPA were rejected. Even getting them proposed seemed like a huge challenge. I think they're actually serious about this.|
If they are serious, all the better for us. It cannot pass as is. If they try, they will only embarrass themselves. If by some miracle it passes, it cannot be made practical use of. There is nearly no one on the internet that would not fall into some category of possible prosecution. If they try to make practical use of it, they will end up spending more money than is currently allotted to national defense. It is an idiotic proposition that cannot succeed on any level. Currently, it serves to entertain the cynical and frighten those who are easily spooked. May it continue to do so for that is the only purpose it will ever serve.
