Statcat: BohemianGraham: I honestly don't know how you Americans plan on enacting this bill anyways if it does pass. You guys don't own the internets, and I doubt everyone's going to follow you in passing this bill. Say I'm in Canada or Germany, and I start up a site and link to copyright material, what legal rights do the Americans have to shut down my site, which is hosted on a Canadian or German server? This is the most assinine thing ever.

Ask TV Shack kid about that one. They'll just extradite you for breaking US law, even though you're a Farkistan citizen living and earning in Farkistan, running a site based in Farkistan and you have been deemed not to be breaking Farkistan law.


The extradition treaty with the US is being more and more questioned in the UK for these kind of cases. Not saying anyone has sucessfully changed anything, just that I don't think the tipping point is very far away.

rebelyell2006: ultraholland: so I just checked to see if Wikipedia was truly blacked out and because I have NoScript it is completely visible and functional when the wikipedia.org and wikimedia.org scripts are blocked.

FAIL

How would you expect them to do more to millions of pages, minipages, subpages and redirects?


Uh... Temporarily altering their DNS entries would have been a good way?

I think I saw her tits before she was GD. And back in the day, there was the original Epic thread.

Anyway, SOPA sucks, send me boobs. I think that's what I'm supposed to post here.

This made the Belgian press (new window). "Teenagers can't finish homework because of Wikipedia blackout." Whatever happened to "the dog ate it"? Your dog wants homeworked steak!

My faith in trolling and Fark have been restored. Drew reeled 'em in like a fisherman. It also took a serious topic and turned it into a BIE thread. Which... is oddly... fitting considering the internet was made for porn.

Oh... and I have my EIP. Would love some boobs in my email to welcome me home from work.

Lord of Allusions: adamgreeney: I_C_Weener: styckx: Reddit finally went black 15 minutes late.

It's pretty cool to see this happening actually.. Nice collective protest.

Unless the websites that the majority of people use like Drudge,Google, Yahoo, MSNBC, CNN, and others went black, it won't mean anything. Those of the websites of the average voters. What you got at Fark, and others, are internet elite and informed persons. Totally different demographic than the average voter...who won't be bothered to 1) contact congress, or 2) vote out their own congresscritter.

In the meantime, I'm hoping for OWS-style free cyber love.

Um, wiki went black. That horrible sound this morning was millions of undergrads realizing they couldnt use Wiki for an entire day. Im sure it made an impact.

Unless you hit 'ESC' between when the page you are looking for and the blackout page loads.


if someone is relying on Wiki for research, they arent smart enough to figure that out.

gambitsgirl: THIS IS NOT A PROTEST!!! The other sites can't be used. Drew is just inconveniencing us at a moderate annoying level


How is that different than normal?

/seriously though, contact your representatives. I did.
 
2012-01-18 08:53:13 AM
OH LAWD, THIS IS THE MOST CLEVER THING EVER

Well played, my ass. Maybe Drew should spend some of the trillions he makes on this web site that actually does nothing but regurgitate other's content and hire someone with some CREATIVE TALENT.

This calls for some King Douchenozzle Von Crunk...not sure why...something earlier in the thread reminded me of him.

Did you actually read the page he put up before you can get into Fark or did you just click the video, then just click on through?

seen a few stories on the blackout this morning and on the Today show just now they were talking about the "google doodle" contest. the rep from Google was talking about that the black box wasn't a doodle but a sign of protest for SOPA/PIPA. Ann Curry (that biatch) cut her off "well let's go ahead and change the subject, what exactly is this google doodle contest?"

/damn i miss Mrs. Viera(?)
 
2012-01-18 09:03:54 AM
I'm just glad that both of my senators are PIPA co-sponsors. Makes me proud to be from Georgia.

I wish KDVC could be here to see some people still remember him. I'm sure he can't afford net access after spending his fistfull of twenties on all those plastic shades. Livin' large in his grandma's living room is tough, I'm sure.

By taking down their content and putting up an anti-SOPA message?

Just like everyone else?

They're doing that, but it doesn't look like they're doing that. That's what makes it so fun.

One line in the .htaccess file would have covered that:

I haven't. I don't really see much point in sending around pictures of each other in various states of undress. If I truly wanted softcore pornography, I'm sure there's a better source for it.

Go to their gallery page, which is where a lot of people go directly, they don't go to the front page, click a pic (new window)

2012-01-18 09:32:23 AM
It's amazing how many people on this thread seemed to think that this was going to be a pro-SOPA protest. I mean...really? SOPA has the potential to kill websites like Fark. Why in the hell would Drew be in favor of that?
