Exclamation CISPA - Important - Please Read

This is VERY important stuff and affects ALL of us. It is somewhat quietly floating through Congress. It is backed by big money... and affects every aspect of your online security and privacy.

If you are one of those people that don't share anything on the internet, like your name or info, DON'T THINK THIS DOESN'T AFFECT YOU. It does, as even your cable company can hand out your info and track where you go and what you do. It is BAD for the general population, period. Read more about it below, and at the very least, send off an e-mail to your local congressman. Links are below to make it easy.

CISPA is Back: FAQ on What it is and Why it's Still Dangerous

The privacy-invasive bill known as CISPA—the so-called “cybersecurity” bill—was reintroduced in February 2013. Just like last year, the bill has stirred a tremendous amount of grassroots activism because it carves a loophole in all known privacy laws and grants legal immunity for companies to share your private information. EFF has compiled an FAQ detailing how the bill's major provisions work and how they endanger all Internet users' privacy. Please join us in speaking out against CISPA by contacting Congress now.

Here is more info about it and answers all your questions about it:
