Please don't misquote me, especially when I prefer midget porn.

i think the US likely won't care at all where a site is hosted or the citizenship of it's owner. if they can take down a .com, they will.


Being awesome won't help your argument. I disagree entirely, but who knows. If the measure is passed, we will see who is correct. If not, I'll be glad to never resolve this dispute.

well, i highly doubt a domain owner's citizenship will have any impact whatsoever on the decision to seize an 'offending' domain.

it's already happened without SOPA.

oh look, fakerolex.com is selling fake rolex's... oh wait, the registered owner is australian... better not seize that domain in case we piss off Julia.

BitcoinPool is.

Other pools are not, including MtRed, which came from reddit...but apparently doesn't want to follow reddit's example of blacking out.  It looks like Deepbit, Slush, and all the other pool simply don't care  if the Internet gets censored...what a shame.

I'm guessing you mean their websites? Anyway, the real shame is that miners are still using traditional pools when there are better options available.  Wink

Correct.  Only the website.

Any domain registered in the USA is vulnerable to the SOPA.  Doesn't even have to have the server or the citizenship in the USA.
