I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I LIVE

@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

@  furrykef : (18 April 2020 - 06:38 PM)

The forum's pretty dead at the best of times, really.

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:36 AM)

lol join the club @wildfire

Yes I know, I talked about this before, and yes I was dismissed as a conspiracy theorist.

 

But that was before things like attacks on net neutrality, the Viacom and Warner Music Group lawsuits involving Youtube, the DMCA tools that have often been illegally exploited to violate the safety and privacy of everyone online, Orwellian attempts of legislation such as SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, and so on, and the whole legal farce of Ken Penders.

 

Looks like the threat was bigger than I thought. Sure there are plenty of people standing up to things like this now, but there have been a few setbacks. Keep in mind these patent trolls are never going to stop, so the struggle continues.

 

And now there's this.

Think about it. Is a restricted internet really the type of "freedom" that so many fought for?

 

Oh, by the way, happy Independence Day.

To those who want to give this "new direction" a chance, don't say I didn't warn you.

I do completely agree with you; we have to be constantly vigilant against these harmful laws. Copyright today isn't being used for what it was originally intended, which was protect an artist's or an inventor's ideas so he/she could profit from it. Instead today you see a lot of big business using the same laws to keep the little guy out and what's worse big media has bought enough influence from politicians so it can essentially write and send their own bills through our government. Special interest in ruining our country through their puppeteering of our elected officials; that's why I'm voting out every incumbent from now on, as it was once said: politicians are like diapers and need to be changed frequently and for the same reason.

But seriously, the main problem comes from the fact that our government has allowed many, many mergers, especially in the media and now we have gone from hundreds of media outlets 40 years ago to, I believe the number right now is 5. That's five entities that control most of the news you watch, the television you watch, the radio and music you listen to, and most of the papers and magazines you read. People can bury their heads in the sand and call you a conspiracy nut all they want, but facts are facts when you have so few controlling so much it's no wonder why things have gotten so bad. What we really need is another Theodore Roosevelt to do some good old fashioned trust busting, so we can have some competition in the media again.
