This was hillarious, especially when she was looking for the user to trade usernames with her. She has succeeded in her search for a random person over the internet. That's quite an achievement, yes, but still hillarious. xD

I'd like to read the others' works too. Creative writing is a fascinating thing, after all. :)

Yes reponse has been strangely quiet. I got someone on FB posting up the link and it also got zero responses and comments. I think perhaps in addition to ppl not being aware, they're probably also afraid of saying anything.


Or maybe they're silently doing their part in all of this. :)

Seriously, SOPA will turn the internet into a graveyard. It will be like how journalism can be censored forcefully by the government if a country is declared under martial law. That's too much power to be held only by the government—too unbalanced.

Web 2.0 happened because of interaction between people who are free to do anything they want without having to worry about anything. And, honestly, the internet has thrived throughout these years unguarded, with the promise of being able to voice out through visual and verbal means. People were given the power to voice by the internet—and a lot of people like to keep it that way.

They didn't need SOPA to be able to imprison those involved with the site. Down to the graphic artist, who could've only been designing graphics for the website's layout and interfaces.

What I fear is, if MU was shut down, then they have a lot of reasons to shut down the other upload-download websites. But MU was different in a way due to their video services. I don't know. :/

But I also noticed that Mediafire took action recently during their latest layout overhaul. They seem to have taken down a lot of links due to copyright issues.

As for SOPA, we can only take action. This site provides infos and means to help stop SOPA, if anyone's interested: http://americancensorship.org/
