I was pleased to see major sites show some effort.

But on another note, hear about ACTA? Link: www.international.gc.ca/trade-agreements-accords-commerciaux/assets/pdfs/acta-crc_apr15-2011_eng.pdf
Now that is a pretty scary world wide agreement, it still is in progress but lots of country's already signed it.. This agreement is as wide open as it can be with wording, so if governments take the chance, they will have have full control..
On subject of the links, i do not intend to break the rules, but only to provide a different view towards anon.. Alot of poeple seem to think they are god and almighty.. They aren't.. The link merely provides a view from someone in the industry that actually knows what he is talking about..
But this wasn't done by Anonymous, but people on 4chan thinking they are anonymous.
I remember the thread clearly, and myself making them look stupid in the process.
I think I signed a petition against ACTA a couple months ago. I cant remember for sure though.
It really takes more than signing petitions... you need to make your voice heard via phone calls and emails to the elected reps in your district and state. People often think that this does nothing, but being a political activist for as long as I can remember... the only thing that sways these politicians from the lobbyists point-of-view is the onslaught of calls and emails from constituents. If you want to make an even larger impact... stop into one of their offices and speak to them directly when they are not in D.C. They may try and sway you to the side of the lobbyists, but as long as you have educated yourself on the matter you can often find yourself swaying them, or at the very least find them submitting to the fact that numerous constituents are voicing similar concerns.
Americans really like to focus their political scope to only inside their borders.
