I was looking into what CISPA does, and I don't like it, but see absolutely nothing in there that gives the government the right to take down webpages.

I almost put up a notice on my site today, but I decided not to since I haven't researched it enough yet to have a proper judgement on it, and I don't want to deter users from my site by posting uninformed political stances on my page. My webcomic isn't a blog, so unless I'm really informed and it's somehow relevant to the site, I'm not going put something political up.

That doesn't mean I'm not against it though.

One of the problems with this bill is with SOPA, we had the internet giants like Google voicing out against it. Now the list is shorter and this bill is less noticable, so it'll be easier to get through.

The good news is the White House is still threatening to veto the bill in its current form, because of the vague privacy concerns. Hopefully it'll die in the Senate and not get that far though.

I could respond with a bitter and snide political commentary, but I'll just stick to more reputable positions and simply say: Judging from history, I'm disinclined to take comfort from that.

Haha, I understand. I'd much rather see it die in the Senate then ever be left to that chance.

Whether or not you think there is nothing to worry about in a new law, you should probably just be concerned that their making yet another law. That's pretty much where I draw the line these days.

I'm willing to concede that new laws are occasionally necessary.

But I think the rule ought to be that they must clear an old law off the books before enacting a new one.

Was that aimed at my comment Casual?

I didn't mean that CISPA was necessary, I was just reacting to the suggestion that I ought to be opposed to it because it was a new law.

I'd rather oppose something because it's poorly worded and not well-thought-out.

But I do think that new laws happen a little too often.

Makes sense. Somehow I thought you had already said how stupid you thought it was, and were repeating yourself for some reason.

I don't know how I got that into my head.

Maybe I was remembering the last time, or something.
