  • Anti-SOPA Movement

    Who’s behind SOPA?

    Rep. Lamar Smith, a Texas politician who’s been known mostly for his anti-immigrant stances in recent years. Smith’s got big industry backers, namely: The Recording Industry Association of American, the Motion Picture Association of America (now led by former U.S. Senator Chris Dodd), and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.



    What’s the justification for SOPA?

    Supporters of the bill claim that it’ll help copyright holders (think big record labels) protect their content. Rep. Smith has criticized the bill’s opponents and explained that SOPA would only target foreign websites that put American businesses at risk.

    But opponents argue that the definition of “foreign infringing sites” is too vague. As it’s written now, they argue, the bill will fundamentally alter the relative freedom with which the Internet currently operates. What’s certain is that it’ll add a level of supervision to the Internet that’s never existed before.



    Who’s opposed to SOPA?

    Basically, every website that you visit regularly. Most notably, Wikipedia, Craigslist, and Reddit, along with thousands of other websites, have chosen to go dark in opposition to the bill and to help educate users about its potential impact. But the list doesn’t stop there: Google, Yahoo, YouTube, and Twitter have also publicly opposed the bill. The White House has also announced that should the bill reach President Obama’s desk, he will veto it.



    How would SOPA work?

    It allows the U.S. attorney general to seek a court order against the targeted offshore website that would, in turn, be served on Internet providers in an effort to make the target virtually disappear. It’s kind of an Internet death penalty.

    More specifically, section 102 of SOPA says that, after being served with a removal order:

    A service provider shall take technically feasible and reasonable measures designed to prevent access by its subscribers located within the United States to the foreign infringing site (or portion thereof) that is subject to the order…Such actions shall be taken as expeditiously as possible, but in any case within five days after being served with a copy of the order, or within such time as the court may order.



    How would it impact me?

    If you create or consume content on the Internet, under SOPA the government would have the power to pull the plug on your website. If you’re a casual consumer, your favorite websites could be penalized and shut down if they seem to be illegally supporting copyrighted material.

    This is especially important for human rights groups and advocates in communities of color, who could faced increased censorship if the bill is passed. The language of the bill makes it easy for the US Attorney General to go after websites it simply sees as a threat.

  • Reinstate The Islamic Caliphate

    Restore The Islamic Caliphate



    "It is permitted to have only one leader (of the Muslims) in the whole of the world."



    "It is forbidden for Muslims to have in the whole world and at the same time two leaders whether in agreement or discord."





    Prophethood will remain with you for as long as Allah wills it to remain, then Allah will raise it up wherever he wills to raise it up. Afterwards, there will be a Caliphate that follows the guidance of Prophethood remaining with you for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then, He will raise it up whenever He wills to raise it up. Afterwards, there will be a reign of violently oppressive rule and it will remain with you for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then, there will be a reign of tyrannical rule and it will remain for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then, Allah will raise it up whenever He wills to raise it up. Then, there will be a Caliphate that follows the guidance of Prophethood.

    Our main goal in life is to harvest as much reppage as possible before we pop our clogs!

    Members of all ages may join so long as they adhere to these sacred rules!


    ♔READ -- TO MOVE UP IN RANK♔

    Any junior member wishing to attain the rank of senior member must attain a certain level of Dufferism and the criteria are very simple! A senior member, or Senex♔Stultus♔Magnus, is awarded with a custom banner with his very own avatar flanked by the Order of the Garter, and gains the right to participate in the more important decisions of S♔O♔D!

    1.junior members must submit a certain amount of dufferesque writings in any forum, viz., 10 long posts (at least 2 paragraphs) or 20 short ones (a few sentences).

    Content and dufferisms to be will be awarded based on merit, jocular, postings, are strongly encouraged as is sarcasm,pathos and wit, however one must remain, calm& polite to a fault.at all times even when assailed by members of a 'non duffer persuasion."

    Dufferesque content is not required in every posting you make,although it is advised that you use the general guidelines from this Membership society to attain maximum Dufferesque habits, for the use in any situation one may find ones self in!

    The use of "You Have Been Weighed, Measured,and found thoroughly wanting"
    Should only be used by Junior member if they think that they have garnered enough experience in matters arising or pertaining to the basic and ancient tenets of S♔O♔D.

    1,junior members must submit a certain amount of dufferesque writings in any forum, viz., 10 long posts (at least 2 paragraphs) or 20 short ones (a few sentences).

    2, Jr members who wish to advance more rapidly to the Senior level rank may wish to do so, by the ability of recruiting five new members to S♔O♔D.

    3, This most certainly is a prestige group however any body can become an arch♔Duffer, considering that he already is a senior member, if

    a, A member of the Arch Duffers "pops his clogs"

    b, A member of the Arch Duffers leaves or retires his post, in which case any aspirant who wishes to attain the hallowed status of Arch duffer, will be will be subject to a vote, in which Dufferesque posts and amount of new members they have recruited to S♔O♔D. will be given fair consideration! As will amount of interest, activity and willingness to extol the Virtues of the Arch-Duffers position in the Society and in TWC fori.

    SOWING DISCORD BETWEEN MEMBERS

    Sowing discord between members is STRICTLY PROHIBITED as conducive to the worst disorders of the civil body, which is the club. Members should always settle matters in a civil fashion; furthermore, let it be reminded that

    Members of different rank may not call each other out.

    If it should happen that a member of lower rank is offended by one of higher rank, an Arch♔duffer or Magnus should step in for him and defend him.

    Furthermore, whereas a member may leave the club at his own discretion, it is not for him to decide if he is readmitted.
