    Basically, if I decide I wanna post a pic of Will Smith, boom goes the site. At least that's what it sounds like it'll do. Then again they've tried to censor the internet various times over the years. Also, any of you remember the gamers vs. congress thing a while ago? Yep.

    Or, say, fan art of Will Smith.

    But who doesn't want that?

    You heard wrong

    Of course, there's always more to be done. Will you shoot a quick email to Harry Reid to tell him to stop pushing the Senate version of the bill? He's threatening to call a vote in January.

    Here's Wired's take on what went down:

    The House Judiciary Committee considering whether to send the Stop Online Piracy Act to the House floor abruptly adjourned Friday with no new vote date set – a surprise given that the bill looked certain to pass out of committee today.

    It's amazing work: Politicians are, for the first time, having to contend with the Internet as a political force -- and we might actually win.

    But now we need to focus attention back on the Senate, where Marjority Leader Harry Reid says the PROTECT IP Act will be the first bill he calls for a vote next year.

    Will you let him and your Senators know that they need to stop pushing this legislation? It's an election year, and they don't want to do any heavy lifting. Pushing hard now could get them to back down altogether.

    Keep up the great work.

    Sounds like a postponing to me, what with the Protect IP Act threatening to go into vote.
