Great chart and posted
It's interesting that support didn't shrink anywhere near as much as opposition grew.
Well, the protest gave some congress critters an inkling of which way the wind was blowing, so they felt they could get off the fence.
I had to explain SOPA and PIPA to my 10 year old daughter this evening. Even she became aware of the issue when her favorite Warrior Cats web site went dark in protest.
Christopher Titus recently suggested that everyone – EVERYONE – pick a day and at a certain time, for exactly one hour, stopped working. Just stop. Completely.
Not work e-mail, no business calls, pull over to the side of the road, nothing.
And then after 60 minutes everyone started back up like nothing happened.
@Scott, if civil servants participated how would we know when they start and stop work?
If we go on the theory that stopping would cause the opposite of what we get now, it would likely end up that we'd see some shit actually get done.
It's frustrating that there are yet hundreds of congressmen on the fence.
It's also frustrating that one of my favorite congressmen used to be Lamar Smith.
Interestingly, all four GOP presidential candidates oppose SOPA now. It's interesting how some policies seem very unpopular with politicians who really need the votes. Makes you wonder about the guys who support it.
The message to our Overlords was clear: Screw with our beer, pizza and professional sports at your peril (bread and circuses).
