[Haskell-cafe] black Wikipedia

Aside from being a horrible oversimplification of the matter (because
it's *never* that simple - Wikipedia is not in this movement for
commercial interest or the side of SV/HW, but because it opposes the
censoring of the internet; neither are people like Dan Kaminsky, who
are also opposing from the point of the large-scale security
ramifications due to the subversion of DNS' universal nature,) and the
grounds at stake extending far beyond either SV or Hollywood [1] - I
don't really think boiling it down to 2 contenders is terribly
important: It passes, and we lose. Or we'll end up having to fight an
even tougher battle.

[1] It will cause substantial damage to large number of existing jobs
in plenty of places as a result of massive amounts of litigation, it
will stunt investment in anything which could potentially suffer from
such litigation, it sets horrific precedents, goes beyond just
'piracy' with the Monster case as John pointed out, and could result
in possible follow up laws in similar countries.
