The Protecting Children from Internet Pornographers Act of 2011 has already made it through Committee. Fuck. Next up is a house vote.

It will require ISPs to keep a record of your internet usage for 18 months, the information can be accessed if you are suspected of any crime, and the police do not need probable cause.

I'm trying to track down the date it goes before a vote.

Edit: From CNET, "A last-minute rewrite of the bill expands the information that commercial Internet providers are required to store to include customers' names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and temporarily-assigned IP addresses, some committee members suggested. By a 7-16 vote, the panel rejected an amendment that would have clarified that only IP addresses must be stored."

Why is it the only time Congress can be bipartisan is when they're complete assholes?

I haven't been following this super close, but I've heard a few places that the likely next step for SOPA/PIPA is to just attach them to that bill.

I feel we, the general public, should be able to make our own bill, The SOPA Act: Shit On Political Assholes.

Well, we can. Anyone can write a bill. You just need to get a congressional member to present it.

Good luck!

I R (am) disappoint (disappointed in the society in which I live). <_<
I don't always remember the past, but when I do I prefer it to be multiple choice.

Same shit, different day. It's actually a fairly different bill, but it's awful for a lot of the same reasons that SOPA was bad. In some ways it's actually worse, since the language is more broad. These shitty bills will keep coming, and every citizen who values free exchange on the internet ought to be calling or mailing their congressman/senator about it. They do listen - it's the reason SOPA was defeated.

I know it's annoying to see politics on Nerfing sites, but we are the Nerf Internet Community, and this shit affects us.

If I may, SOPA and all the other things are not the problem. There are A problem, but not THE problem.

If I may refer to our good friend Maddox...
