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.

wow to the way this and the other article was written! "it was clear to anyone with a mordicum of political sense" that the build would be shelve because of reddit and the cheese bugger network would go down for one freakking day? no one gives a damn about reddit and lolcat pictures. this build went down because of behind the scene nogotiation on the hill. and the arrogance of how this article is written, and the one where it says the white house statement said nothing, is incredible. you're the one who don't know anything about politics and you're not thinking like an adult.
