Use Your Voice


Yesterday Daddy posted about an article in which a reporter posted a very misguided article about SIDS (among other things). Today, that article was retracted...hopefully, in some part due to the comments left by Daddy and others regarding the ignorance on which that article was based.It would be nice to know that individual voices can be brought together to correct a wrong or avoid one all together. This brings me to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). SOPA (and PIPA) are such poorly written pieces of garbage that if they pass would destroy the Internet as we know it. Say someone who pirates something from Sony decided that they were also interested in SIDS and linked to your blog. Well, if Sony found out and filed a grievance against the offending site, not only that site could be shut down, but this one as well since it had an indirect relationship to that other site. I know it is a stretch to think that may happen, but Daddy can not control the contents or links of other web sites and to have this blog's fate decided by some big corporation who may not make that extra million this year is just ridiculous. So, since a few voices made an ignorant article regarding SIDS disappear, your Daddy is asking that everyone who reads this blog let their voices be heard and make SOPA (and PIPA) disappear as well.

I love you!
