Internet & Networking The Obama administration has responded to two petitions regarding SOPA, but in true political fashion, the response is 838 words of absolutely nothing at all. Here's a link, but don't complain to me about losing 10 minutes of your life reading this empty drivel. How about taking a stand for once, eh?

Did you miss the bit where Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, said he would oppose HR 3261 (SOPA) and would stop it from becoming law in its current form? Did you miss the bit where the House shelved HR 3261, meaning it's no longer in the active pipeline to become a law? I know we still need to stop PIPA, and then move SOPA from "shelved" to outright discarded, but we are in fact making progress on this issue. Get down off your high horse, kthx.

Do you realise that you stop all sensible debate with you by the fact that you pretend you are right at all times, instead of any actual intellectual integrity?

You are bad as those other bloggers (such as the Chap from the Daring Fireball) that you say are biased.

You know it is alright to be wrong sometimes, and facts change so implying someone is an idiot after he comments on the facts that he knew about is pretty out of order.

BTW BBC NEWS (Which is owned and paid for by UK taxpayers) seem to agree with the fact that the Whitehouse is against it

The stance is likely to anger many companies who have publicly supported Sopa.
