    Yes, this is the SOPA thread, renamed to fit this latest bad guy.

    ACTA. How about some PINNED coverage to raise awareness this time when things get serious, please EG.

    There is/was...but because the EG site puts 'popular' items up front it dropped off.

    Showing more about the readership than anything else :p

    Speak the truth hussy!

    It should be pinned and have a flashing headline.

    Less popular than Max Payne being delayed and the Mario Kart glitch!

    Wanted to access the Elderscrolls wiki and got this "This site has been blocked to Americans by the US Government Firewall"

    So if it's just blocked to Americans, can I go in? No.

    A glitch in Mario Kart?

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    ..because EG might get misinterpreted as suppporting Piracy?... which seem to be the angle that the pro guys are going for. Typical American dumbshit view that you either support piracy pr dont and by not supporting the censorship thing you are supporting piracy by default.

    A lot of game sites are announcing that they will not cover E3 unless the ESA pull out of supporting SOPA. Is EG planning a similar stance?

    Eurogamer could be one of the few with E3 coverage! More clicks and money in those hills!

    Protests are still going ahead even though the bill is practically dead? Must have really hit a nerve.

    I hope that this intent is stuck to, by the concerned. ESA's annual shindig, it's gaudy celebration, deserves snubbing if they're going to continue to support (and cause by association, its members to support) such thoroughly destructive land-grabbing, as much as it concerns unharmful, and well-intended media ventures that aim to inform and entertain. For instance, Giantbomb, it's doa as soon as this thing gets through.

    I agree with the Wikipedia position that where something will come about, that goes entirely against what their organisation was intended for, and founded to assure, then they should not sit on their hands, and they would be mistaken to do so. They've taken a peaceful protest to raise awareness, and state their case, that in no way impedes their 24/7 role, or the likelihood of bias to enter it - for the BBC reporter to suggest that, was just dubious baiting.

    They hit the 'get the fuck off our internets' nerve.
    Give these cunts an inch and they'll take a mile - the only way to deal with them is to kick them repeatedly in the testes until they learn.

    Yes, but you're not like the rest of us, are you?

    At least I hope not.

    Wouldn't the enforcement of such legislation and it's effects on business end up far exceeding any losses from piracy?
