The US Congress is considering America's first system for censoring the Internet. Despite public outcry, the Internet Censorship bill could pass at any time. If it does, the Internet and free speech will never be the same.

What do you think?

I noticed following in Stack Overflow forum. Will it not affect SSC?

SOPA is a dangerous law. It breaks the Internet and threatens sites like Stack Overflow. Protect the Internet!

No.

That's not to say I support it, since it will affect several other sites that I frequent, but it won't affect SSC.

If you litter your database queries with nolock query hints, are you aware of the side effects?
Try reading a few of these links...

(*) Missing rows with nolock
(*) Allocation order scans with nolock
(*) Consistency issues with nolock
(*) Transient Corruption Errors in SQL Server error log caused by nolock
(*) Dirty reads, read errors, reading rows twice and missing rows with nolock

Thanks for sharing your thoughts but I am kind of confuse why it should / should not affect SSC.

I'm not in the US either, but I like to keep track of world news. Although it is very broadly definitely, I can't see how it could be applied to SSC.

I was about to share Wikipedia URL here (but you already did ).

You are right. The terms they are using have wide scope (and pretty much unclear as well). Just thinking why It's applicable to some forums (say Stack Overflow) ONLY.

I can't see a good reason for one to be affected and not the other.

How I interpret the bill, it isn't applicable to StackOverflow (despite what they say).

wyer, but5 I think the catch is that the law gives US courts free hand to punish companies that are doing something that is perfectly legal in their sovereign jurisdiction.
