Where there's clueless legislators, there's people who know what the hell they're doing (the public)!

The same people who keep voting them back into office and aren't outraged at this bill enough to do anything to stop it? Those people?

No, fandroid, they aren't. Congresscritters are unaccountable leeches, who live in their own little world, lording it over the rest of us. They buy votes of the ignorant masses with unearned benefits (which has bankrupted the country), and only support those who fill their campaign coffers; anyone else be damned.

From what is described in these "hacks," it seems that it would be pretty easy to get around this for anyone who runs their own, private DNS on their local network. There are lots of public DNS servers out there that are outside of the US. All one would need to do is point the network DNS to a public DNS that is located outside of the US. Said DNS could be a primary or a fail-over. For the US based private DNS runner, it would be a trivial change in configuration.

The people who understand this technology work in the field, not in the senate playing "pay me to make a decision." They're also a minority. Don't be fooled by the sense of control you think we have as a democracy. Money votes.

i hope SOPA and MAFFIAA burn for what they're trying to do. Not what they say what they want toi do, but rather for what they actually want. And may I be wrong about them.

I feel bad for the majority of internet users who don't know about SOPA or how to circumvent its effects. OTOH makes me want to host a "rogue" DNS...
