The US government is currently trying to pass a bill which essentially will result in the internet being a useless invention, they will make it were a site with the potential to have illegal links or submissions can be taken down. That would also include this site, youtube, even places like facebook or twitter. Now, as i really dont have any personal experience in anything that would require me to actually have a life i shall refer you to someone I have subscribed to on youtube who happens to be British and have some legal experience and knowledge.



Also, if you are an american citizen please click the link below and send the pre-written E-mail to your congressmen (you can edit it if you want as well)

And to those of you who don't live in America who think this doesn't affect you, it does. many of the most popular sites (Youtube for one) are hosted in the states and so if this bill passes it will pretty much be kicked around by the government and proceed to not exist.

Thanks for reading and i hope they shoot all the idiots who thought this stupid thing up.

If anyone has anything constructive and/or on-topic feel free to add you thoughts, just please no flamewars.

(apologies if I in anyway shape or form offended or annoyed anyone on this site with my save the internet rant)
NO WAY IN, NO WAY OUT.

This is why i don't trust the government and lots of my friends feel the same way and if the government tries to take our freedom we will just have to start a rebellious act to get back our rights.

I don't think they could do to much, yeah, small websites maybe, but if they took down youtube there would be international uproar. And hell, nearly a billion people use facebook, they wouldn't be able to take it down

America is asking for themselves to be destroyed if they take down places like this.

You have to understand, if they take YouTube down, it won't just be down for America. The site will literally be deleted, meaning, NO ONE will be able to use it.
