Well, My internet is the verizon service, and I can see the website. But, if some service providers really have been blocking it, that’s just insanely wrong. D:
If you are in America, try to click this. See what comes up.
More and more people are finding that they can’t get anything of value out of it. Whether through a “Page not found”, a search error, forever loading, or a blatant IP block, American users are being shut out of seeing this site, an anti SOPA page with information on the bill and ways to speak against it. Even proxy websites aren’t working normally.
There’s already been censorship of the bill’s opponents in the Congressional hearings. How crazy is it to think that possibly, the same is being extended to websites?
So far, a list of services that have had issues with the site:
- Time Warner
- Optimum Online
- Bright House/Road Runner
I know, call me a conspiracy theorist. It’s also possible it’s some server/internet issue, etc. However, given the timing of this event, and that Comcast has been known in the past to block political sites it disagrees with, I’d say this at least deserves some sort of eye on it.
Ok guys, I know I said I’d keep politics out of my crappy drawing blog, but this is really important. Up until now, the SOPA and Protect IP bills looked like a distant threat. An “oh gosh, I hope that doesn’t happen” situation. But the process is already beginning. People are already saying that this site is blocked, and if this piece of law passes, things are going to begin changing for the worst for all of us. For many of us here, the internet is our sole source of socialization, people make their livings through here. I don’t know about you guys, but I spend almost all of my waking hours on the internet. This is more than a place for funny cat videos and babies laughing in slow motion, for some of us it’s home. These people are fucking with your lives so they can turn a buck.
It shows for me because I’m not american I’m canadian…
Maybe I should screencap the info so you guys can see it?
ugh oh god i can’t see it either
