awesome, at least hopefully wikipedia will bring the issue to enough new people. Although most of those people retweeted there seem like complete idiots who aren't going to do shit.

You also proposed it this morning, didn't have a design, and didn't have a plan on how to implement it. Sooooo...

Anyway I don't see SOPA, if at all passed, working as the apocalyptic force its made out to be. It's still a shame that there are people out there (damn you Texas) who think this is a good idea, though.

If I cast a vote it would have been 5 for it and 2 against, but we'd still have the problem of not having anything. An idea I quickly drew up was to take the old GTA-Vice intro splash (you guys remember that?) the one that shows the Rockstar Logo screen on Vice City, and alter it so after "LOAD GTA-VICE" (or "LOAD GTAGAMING" as it would be now) it would then display "ERROR: LOAD FAILED -SEE SOPA" and then just have a bypass link appear at the bottom.

You can still get something up there and have it run for a day even if it's a little late. I think the point is getting the word out there before congress can be congress.

Also lol...

Thanks, Kemosabe. I'll try to contain my laughter on future observations.



I'm not sure why I'm still friends with this girl, but she's obsessed with Reddit and legitimately believes that the site has single-handedly spread the word of SOPA/PIPA and "no one should ever get on the bad side of an angry redditor XD"

Not sure where your hatred for Reddit comes from, you've brought it up twice in this thread.

Yeah, like it or not Reddit is a huge community and must have had at least some influence (as in, getting people signing that petition/calling)

Quote:
In December 2011, reddit served 2.07 billion pageviews. Crazy. Here are some details:
2,065,237,338 pageviews
34,879,881 unique visitors
12.97 pages / visit
16 minutes average time on site
Over 100 million monthly pageviews per employee

I could have thrown together a quick crappy html page with links and a continue to GTAGaming button in about a minute =P I just didn't want to throw it up there without other staff's opinions first.

Also Google says 4.5 million people signed the SOPA/PIPA petition just through their page alone.

Unfortunately reddit's blackout scripting had an issue and it's now available to the general public.

Whywhywhywhywhy. Also, fuck the government telling me what I can and can't do.
