A much worse bill is being pushed by Lamar Smith (SOPA guy), which I can't mention because of its probably inappropriate name. For those who know what I'm talking about, you should know that the name is nothing more than propaganda. The bill would force ISPs to track users' credit card data, bank statements, IP information and search history and keep it on hand for 18 months. SOPA and PIPA are being withdrawn because of the huge backlash, but there is nothing stopping Lamar Smith from passing this new act that will have the same effect

TPCIPA? Smith is some kind of slimeball. And idiot.

The worst part is that the 'PC' part stands for 'Protecting Children'. Because of course, the best way to protect children is to stalk everyone.

Okay, that takes care of the slimeball part. Now for the idiot part.

Lamar Smith obviously knows nothing about the internet. Tracking internet activity and keeping records of it for eighteen months is massively impractical. Who's going to pay for all new data banks and software to make this law possible? This is overregulation that fixes nothing. People who don't unstand something shouldn't be allow to makes laws about it. I wouldn't go round trying to regulate farming, since I know next to nothing about it.

But that's what American law making is all about.

It's not "dead" yet, it's just put to the side for now.

Yay to hboneheads! AFAIK, SOPA just got delayed by congress, though it might have been dumped.
