    you just press stop in your browser. Disappointing they didn't try to prevent some of these loop holes...kind of softens the message.

    PIPA is just as bad, arguably worse. Think that this is as much to remind everyone of its existence. They're both ****ing appaling pieces of legislation.

    No it doesn't. This is about awareness, the whole fact that you have to get around it in the first place means you're being made aware of it. They state quite plainly that it's designed to be leaky.

    yeah and I think that's a mistake. A large part of the effectiveness of such a thing is the inconvience...it's hardly inconvenient if you can so easily use the site still. A large portion of people are going to see the message, work out quickly that you can still use the site, and, because of that, won't give it any more of their attention.
