A short attention span
They know if they push the same things enough, eventually everyone will stop caring. When people stop caring they stop fighting.
So what will you do?

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is back. Again. (See below post as well)
Posted by Halla @ Fri 02 15, 2013 08:25Remember CISPA? I wrote about it last time around here:

Heres a quote from that last post -
"First SOPA, then PIPA, now CISPA.
I was going to make this a call to arms. A cry to wake up and do something.
Maddox was right. All the movements in the world arent going to stop this from happening. Blacking out websites and whatever dont matter. Writing to your representatives doesnt matter. None of it matters, because they are just going to change the name, add a few amendments and ram it through one way or another."
I was right.
Except that they didnt even bother to change the name or amend it.
If this upsets you, you had better DO something. Not a click, an upvote, a like, or whatever. DO SOMETHING.
