Max-igami will be shut down until further notice. The only activity I will allow on this site until further notice is comments on this post. Why? Because CISPA got passed! Alright, you’re probably thinking, “What’s CISPA?” It’s a really bad bill introduced by the government. Remember SOPA, that bill that planned to give more power to copyright law, and make fan-fiction illegal? SOPA was massively protested, and luckily, it never got passed. And CISPA is kind of similar to SOPA. You know how when you’re signing up for a site, and because of the site’s privacy policy, they promise not to give away your personal information that you give them?

Well, CISPA would allow them to give that personal information to the government without your permission. It would also allow the government to spy on you without your permission. It would also prevent you from knowing that they’re spying on you, even after they’ve already done so. This violates the 4th Amendment in our Constitution, the right to not be unreasonably searched without your permission. In other words, CISPA is really bad. It’s not stooky at all! And since it’s so horrible, it can’t possibly be passed, right? Wrong. It got passed!

That means that the information your parents might’ve given to websites that they signed up for and trusted could be sent to the government. This applies to anyone who has signed up for a website asking for information that they trusted would be safe in the hands of that website. And like I said, it already got passed. Lots of people (including me) protested, but Congress didn’t listen. And the sponsor of CISPA, Mike Rogers, claimed that all the protestors of CISPA are just 14-year-olds in basements, which isn’t true.

Barack Obama said that he plans to veto (a veto is when the president tries to end a law) CISPA (you can read more about that here: http://www.wtvm.com/story/21998220/president-obama-plans-to-veto-cyber-data-sharing-bill). Barack Obama is definitely not a 14-year old. You can enter your email address (or your parent’s email address with their permission) at cispaisback.com to protest CISPA. It’s not too late to protest it, even though it was already passed. Hopefully, the veto will be successful. And you can see Mike Rogers claiming all CISPA-protestors are 14-year olds here:

So, again, Max-igami is shut down until further notice. The only activity I’ll allow for now is comments on this page.

May the Force be with you. You’ll need it to protest CISPA.

    Are you kidding? There are ncis fanfics. There are fanfics of nearly every tv show. Including phineas and ferb. I know sevrel people who aren’t 14 who would be against this.

    • CISPA wouldn’t ban fan-fiction, that’s SOPA, which already got defeated. But CISPA would still allow the government to SPY on us while we’re on the internet. But, yeah, there are plenty of people who aren’t 14-year olds who are against this.
