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.

and then threatened me, by banning me on this website if I didn't agree with you.


This is a rather serious accusation. You say I threatened to ban you if you did not change your opinions so that they aligned with me?

I obviously did no such thing. I gave you a temporary ban because you were being a dick. End of story. I never threatened you in any way, so please, don't lie.

I would have some insane amount of threatening to do if I were to force everybody here into agreeing with me. I'm sorry, you're not that important.
