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.

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.


When did you admit error? Whenever I have posted I have been wrong in your eyes even when it is some thing I do for a living ... however you do not admit these.

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.


However some here did disagree with you and instead of actually arguing with them you said the equivalent of "you are a dumbass".

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.


The temp ban was for less than a day after I asked you why I was banned and who I was rude to ... I didn't have an answer, I was just reinstated.

How btw was I then abrasive just then? I was questioning you? If you cannot stand criticism maybe you disallow a comments sections on what you post altogether.

If you want OSNEWS to stoke your own ego ... go ahead.
