Internet & Networking Big news from Capitol Hill in Washington DC today: House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa has said that the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has been "shelved" in the House of Representatives, meaning it has been put on indefinite hold until a consensus about the act can be reached. Sadly, SOPA's counterpart in the Senate, the Protect IP Act (PIPA) will still be pushed forward, meaning we must remain vigilant. Despite all of this, Wikipedia has announced it will join the blackout coming Wednesday.

It all boils down to that you do not have the intellectual honesty to actually ever admit your are wrong.


Please stop with these silly personal attacks. Any cursory perusal through OSNews' story history proves that I have admitted error on my end COUNTLESS times.

I have an opinion, and that opinion is that Obama's statement was empty and pointless. Several OSNews readers, HackerNews readers, Ars Technica readers, Redditors, and people all over the web agreed with me - and, as you point out, several disagreed. That's life for you.

I suggest that you strike a more civil tone - not just against me, but in general. You've had a temporary ban for abrasive behaviour before, and that should serve as a warning.
