    Exclamation Anti-SOPA XS Blackout

    Fugger and Admins -

    Any chances of a last minute X.S. blackout to support the Anti-SOPA movement against Internet censorship?






    SOPA BLACKOUT COUNT DOWN

    I think you missed the sarcasm there, while it's daytime in the USA and the sites are down, it's nighttime here and I'm asleep

    Now c'mon.. Lets be fair to the glaciers..They move pretty quick compared to XS..

    Seriously, when it's all added up XS does pretty good considering the volume of people here and that it's a one man show.

    One man show? Don't the moderators and admins make it more than a one man show? Or are you counting them out o.O ??

    Maybe a bad choice of words on my part but true in the sense that there are things the admins and mods can do and then things that only the owner(FUGGER) can do.
    IE: In the context of this thread I would never shut down the site on my own authority.
    That is outside my jurisdiction and more important that this is Fuggers site and even if I had the authority or ability I wouldn't do something like that
    out of respect for him.

    Maybe the admins could have had a meet'n'greet to discuss the issue with Fugger. Would have been productive.
