    Okay, so I read about this over in ye olde cold country, and thought it weird that no thread was made here. I don't know much about the issue itself, this is the first I hear of it, but basically it seems that you're all legislating cencorship.

    Loads of fun from Arstechnica:
    What is going on? This should be a burning issue right now. For all I know there is no support at all in the general public and Senate, but I thought I should bring it up.

    This seems bad. I mean REALLY bad.
