This one is pretty simple. If you like the internet, whether it be Facebook, Ape Con Myth or anything in-between, you’ve got a little work to do.

The word is Congress might try to push this through by the end of the month. There is no time to waste if you have any interest in wasting more time on the internet in the future.

This is not a joke. This is not a drill. If you’re getting tired of having to do this kind of stuff, let your representative know that too.
