Please repost this? I have never begged for one of my posts to be boosted. I am just so worried for my friends and want you to know.

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

I'll kind of miss it. I'm looking forward to Obama's presidency, of course. He's inheriting a real mess and I hope he can make things better for everyone. That goes for my Republican friends, too, many of whom have told me they are Not Happy. I hope Obama exceeds your expectations and does right by you, too. After all, isn't the President on the side of the people/nation, and doesn't s/he do what s/he thinks is in the best interest of both? I think that's how it's supposed to work, anyway.

So here's to 2009, and Obama, and whatever's next!

Well, I'm back.

But too tired to make a real entry, so that'll have to wait.

Three cheers for the LJ Abuse team, Google, Google cache, and for being an email packrat, however.

Kids, let this be a lesson to you: back up your entries.
