I received an e-mail from Sandie at [crochetcabana] about the Orphan Works Bill. I recommend we all be aware of what is going on with this.

Follow the link and at the bottom of the page it has Bill Name/Description which will take you to a page that explains what these bills actually mean.

I have myself sent opposition letters to both congressman and senator earlier today.

There is also a sample letter and where to send them for non-U.S. residents. At the top of the page on the above link, click where it says special link in blue. I tried to post the link but I couldn't get it to work. 

Here are more links about it for your reading pleasure:

To be fair, here are links that are not in opposition to the bill :

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.
