Yeah, I'm annoyed by it. I habitually read Wikipedia when I'm bored and such.

The good thing about a free service is I can always get my money back if not happy.

I found this post amusing.

And Sky, yeah, it's just a minor annoyance.

I'm not currently affected, but In all seriousness is it really so difficult for you guys to turn off javascript?

People were saying all the same stuff about SOPA that they said about DMCA and that didn't affect anybody. Why anybody would conduct business in the USA is a mystery to me. In the meanwhile there is always tunnelr and friends to less restrictive countries. Why doesn't google, wikipedia, etc simply leave the US? If more restrictions keep appearing, they will.

I still have little desire to renew my visa and stay here after I graduate... ridiculous bills like this don't make the place more inviting that's for sure...

Typical bonehead "fire off a cannon to kill a gnat" legislation. Anybody here tried to run for office, and get to a position to actually have some impact on stuff like this? Even helped a campaign of someone clueful? Or is moaning and complaining about it more your speed?

I'd love to run for office. But it's not cheap, and since both halves of the Duopoly are jokes, I'd be independent which is that much tougher. If only we had a decent voting system, that didn't stigmatize independents and third party candidates the way Plurality voting does.

The thought process is:

1. something must be done
2. I have an idea
3. therefore that idea must be done

That said, I'd vote with my feet and simply leave. If so inclined; the +'s to living in the USA still far, far, outweigh the -'s.

Agreed.

I completely forgot that I could just view by turning off JS. Hah.

In any case, we should get back on topic here, yes.

The mobile site (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/) still works normally. You can also view articles through Google cache.

Not for long, sybr. Not for long.

I miss the trees, flowers and chirping birds but that's about it. The US I lived in is gone.

Sorry. What I meant to say was, it may be profitable for mr. nukem to disable javascript when browsing wikipedia today. Nothing more.

cheers
