“The internet is the most powerful tool we have for creating a more open and connected world. We can’t let poorly thought out laws get in the way of the internet’s development. Facebook opposes SOPA and PIPA, and we will continue to oppose any laws that will hurt the internet.” – Mark Zuckerberg

Let’s stop online piracy by destroying everyone’s freedom of speech forever. Best idea ever! Yaay!

So yes, it seems as though the war is still on although it also seems like the good guys are winning. This SOPA Strike, while it might mean definitive victory to us,  is a bit annoying now that I’ve been without many of my favourite websites for a while, but it’s better that than to be without all of my favourite websites forever. This blackout is totally worth it if it means that we shall triumph over one of the most stupid ideas of recen times – censoring the whole Internet!

I’d like to ask, because I’m tremendously curious: who, in this entire world, is actually supporting this garbage? I’ve searched high and low for someone who thinks that SOPA is the best thing to ever happen and, much to my delight, I have found no one yet who thinks so. Everyone wants to stop you, SOPA. Just be rational, run off and admit defeat already.

Keep fighting my friends and fellow Internet-lovers! Fight for your freedom of speech, blogs, sites and sadistic pictures of Justin Bieber! Fight!

And finally a silly parody song:

Let’s get down to business
To defeat SOPA
Did they send a black page
When I asked for porn?
They’re the saddest bunch
I ever met
But you can bet
After we win
SOPA, I’ll make a lolpic
out of you!

And so on…
