Let me try and put this in simpler terms, as we really do need to discuss this.
If SOPA (or PIPA) get through, it will give the American authorities the ability to permanently remove a website from the Internet over an allegation of copyright infringement that doesn't even need to be from the copyright holder.
The owner of the site is then held responsible and faces fines and a jail term.
Now look at the images just on this page, in your sigs, over in HMW and on the comics pages. All of them are actionable images that could potentially get this site shut down. How many of you use photobucket? Wikipedia? Facebook? Twitter? Yahoo? These will all have to go too, which is why they have joined other big sites on the net like Reddit to publicly stand against this bill.
Bickering over cemantics isn't going to help, this bill needs everyones help to get it stopped. Sitting back and saying 'well, this might not happen' is taking a pretty major risk considering what you stand to lose here.
Think about it guys, I assume you don't want to lose this place?
