Warning: rant ahead. If you don't want to read the wall-o-text, just skip to the bottom and go to the petition. : )
For the love of whatever deity or deities you believe, could you people stop trying to fucking censor the damn internet? First YouTube wants only Barney friendly shit, then S.O.P.A. keeps trying to fuck people over, and now this piece of shit, Article 13, has been passed?! What the ever loving serious fuck? When this was brought up just months ago, it was rejected because nobody likes have someone putting a big CENSORED bar over their creativity!
Do you people really want to go down this path again? Let me just say this, "Those who don't learn their history are doomed to repeat it." So, even though you may think you're smarter or better than those who tried before you and failed, let me break it to you gently - you're not. You're human, you're no better than anyone else who has tried to suppress, censor, and oppress society, and it will end the same way; revolts, civil wars, and (I hope not) death.
Humans are creatures of free will, which means their creativity is not for someone else to decide on, and don't try to give me shit like, "Think of the children!" There are two big powerhouses that are responsible for the great internet we have today: Star Trek and porn. You know, kind of similar to the same reason YouTube was created? So people could see an uncensored female nipple. What you people, the ones trying to pass and put these laws, articles, etc. into motion are fighting against the current and you're going to be swept away, just like all others before you.
Okay, rant over. If you don't want a good chunk of amazing creators to be punished for being creative, please click the link and sign the petition. These morons don't seem to grasp that no one wants this and they need to stick that Article 13 where it belongs.
