Obviously it wouldn't kill Doctor Who or our love for it, BUT this is what it will do if it goes through in two days time. SOPA stands for Stop Online Piracy Acts. Not only will the Royal Navy of cyber space search far and wide across the seven seas of the internet going after cyber pirates to shoot canon balls at, they'll be coming for us as well. That is, all forms of fandom. In other words, if this thing goes through, fan art, fan fiction, fan sites (ie this one right here), fan made videos, roleplaying, etc. will be made illegal and all content deleted. Yes, my dear fellow Whovians, there is a hypothetical army of Cybermen coming at us with every passing second, arms outstretched, droning "DELETE DELETE DELETE" and this time the Doctor's not here to help. BUT if we've learned anything from our favorite Time Lord, it's that there is always hope no matter how impossible the obstacles set before us may seem. So, my friends, break out those sonics and brainy specs, straighten your bowties and get ready for a fight. Here's what we're going to do. A petition is up to stop this nonsense and it is our duty to help out as most of us here will undoubtedly be SOPA's target if we should, Rassilon forbid, fail. Sign it here petitions.whitehouse.gov/petit… . We can do this! The future of our fandom relies on your vote! Don't let SOPA criminalize you for sharing the love of fandom online.
May the light of Omega and the wisdom of Rassilon guide you through all of time and space (and everywhere inbetween),
