Fight for Your Right!

written by
Big news Craigslist needs your help. The site that helped build the internet and has helped countless people connect and trade pictures of their genitalia back and forth for years. As well as offering invaluable community service that allows people to organize, vent their opinion, buy, sell, trade, find even the rarest items, find homes and apartments, soulmates and one night stands,  and an infinite supply of pictures of penises.Now needs your help to oppose unfair bills that will pass in congress and negatively harm everyones internet freedoms.


" Congress needs to hear from you, or these dangerous bills will pass - they have tremendous lobbying dollars behind them, from large corporations reportedly hoping to prop up outdated, anti-consumer business models at the expense of the very fabric of the Internet -- recklessly unleashing a tsunami of take-down notices and litigation, and a Pandora's jar of "chilling effects" and other unintended (or perhaps intended?) consequences." - craigslist

As long as were talking about staples of the internet, now is as good a time any to show your support to probably one of the most important sites for education on the internet. You can either click the link or its probably all ready on your toolbar Wikipedia.org. People forget how important and amazing it is that wikipedia is a dot org it doesn't feel advertising would be appropriate on their site and yet they are the number 5 site on the web that is an amazing feat and it should be respected, commended, and supported. Everyone now a days, and especially on the internet is so eager to sell out and make a buck at any cost, part of it is cause we need the money recession and all the other part is just plain old greed. Wikipedia seeks not fame nor fortune, they just want to be available to remind everyone, what that episode of star trek was or why Stone Cold Steve Austin need bionic knees to wrestle it seems.
