The SOPA is an incredible dangerous piece of legislation that requires a crystal clear message. We The People, will not tolerate the further weakening (and destruction) of the Constitution.
So then make the point where it should be made. Anyone that even thought about voting for this shouldn't be in office come their next term.
But the voting is so dissociated from the actions of the politicians, that I doubt even the most frothing at the mouth anti-SOPA voter will even think about it come next election. Because other things matter more. Like... frothing at the mouth over party divisions. Or something. I'm not sure what... but there's something!
You know that you're sending mixed signals now, eh?
That was a calculated risk, but I thought the joke fit rather nicely. Moral being that some things just cannot be overlooked regardless of previous good behavior.
I think that with the quick reversal, and the prior history of good behaviour, this isn't one of those things. If they dragged their feet in the mud and had to be pulled screaming, then I'd say so. But not in this case. The RIAA - yeah, I can see that. The MPAA - yeah, I can see that too. But this...?
I won't be pulling out at this time. They've gone out of their way to help me at times, and not just to correct the problem, but to help me understand. But that's just my opinion and my experience. Let each person's wallet speak for them.
