Legal The saga surrounding SOPA will be dominating the headlines for a while yet, and today is no different. First of all, and most importantly, the European Parliament has adopted a resolution against SOPA, while also calling for net neutrality to become part of EU law. Second, and this is also interesting, we now have a list of software companies which are against freedom of speech on the web. Unsurprisingly, Apple and Microsoft are on this list. Update: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has spoken out against SOPA. Update II: Tumbler's anti-SOPA message on their website generated almost 90000 (!) phone calls to representatives. Amazing.

What about censorship on OSNEWS?

Sure seems unfair to those few people who are censored on this site. If you were really about openness then OSNEWS would ban this modding down feature. It is a form of censorship.

It's as much a censorship as closing a book is. See? I can read and even reply to your "censored" comment.

Actually, if I have a look at your profile, you have as much posts voted up that you have posts voted down, and for someone who doesn't like the "vote down" feature, you still make more use of it than the "vote up" feature... ("33% positive moderation")
