"We [Reddit] will be blacking out reddit on January 18th from 8am–8pm EST (1300–0100 UTC).
Instead of the normal glorious, user-curated chaos of reddit, we will be displaying a simple message about how the PIPA/SOPA legislation would shut down sites like reddit, link to resources to learn more, and suggest ways to take action."
Reddit.com is in.

"Hi Jonathan,
If such an action was organized I'm almost sure we'd [Bluesnews.com] participate." -email response, I've replied to them with the reddit link
Bluewsnews.com is in.

Awaiting responses from others I've contacted.

However you feel about the sites going black and displaying activism information, please PLEASE PLEAAAAAAASE, post links to raise awareness about SOPA on your respective social media outlets.

p.s. videosift.com in?

Are you more or less likely to purchase Sun Chips because of their new bag?

^That's annoying, vote option 2 got cut off. Should read "...brings back memories of the 'Moment of hate' from 1984."

I am all for 'greener' everything. And when Sun Chips decided they were coming out with compostable bags, my initial thought was "Well, i know this is just a bit of corporate marketing at work but at least they're doing some good."

That was until heard the new bags...To those who have not heard it, be warned the noise output of these little 1x2 foot receptacles sounds like a giant aluminum foil tarp blowing in high winds.

While picking up groceries today, I stopped and pondered my choices. In one hand, I held my old standby "Baked Lays," the chips that had captured my heart before I was introduced to the devils addiction that is "Harvest Cheddar." In the other hand, every minute movement wracked my ears with cricks and crackles, each of which made me shudder a little. My wife called to me gently "Pick some damned chips already so we can get the hell out of this isle!"

And it was at that moment, I made a decision, not based on taste, or value (the Sun Chips were actually CHEAPER), or compostability. I made a decision based solely on the idea that "I hate how loud this fucking bag is."

Feel free to judge me, but Sun Chips have made a decision, and so have I.

What do you think about this idea for the Sift Lounge??? ((see description))

_____In discussions with Gwiz today I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Sift Lounge wasn't sucked into a black hole caused by the Large Hadron Collider as I previously thought. The button simply went missing and I missed the memo. I ventured a guess at the cause of the lounge gone missing since well...people didn't really go there often. It was (is) a bit slow and unreliable (and you frequently have to refresh the whole page to avoid "locking").

_____Still I missed it a bit. It's nice to be able to chat with fellow sifters and have a place to shamelessly promote turtles having sex slowly and the like. But I digress, let me cut to the chase. I have an interesting idea for revitalizing the sift lounge. Remember that show on VH1 called "Pop Up Video"?? If you don't I've posted an example of "Smooth Criminal" below.

_____I imagined a stream of videos, playing one at a time with others waiting in a queue, that looked similar to Pop Up Videos. The big difference here would of course be that sifters would be supplying the "Pop Ups." If we played the top 15 videos in a loop for 24 hours perhaps people could upvote "pop ups" and the higher ranked pops would take priority in a specific time slot in the video. The details are still a bit fuzzy but I would love some input before I rush off to the copyright office and start my own video site *cough, or i can take 10% of the profits, cough*

_____Let me know what you think in the comments and via the votes. And for those of you who dont know what a Pop Up Video is I've provided one below:

Should *notquality be an invocation?

I've noticed with increasing frequency that some videos are posted then deemed *quality but perhaps don't deserve such distinction. Quality invocations are, in my mind, a problem because of two things:
1) *quality seems to be much more effective than *promote ever was (or is), making promoting a bad deal since they both cost one powerpoint
2) Multiple members promoting multiple videos wasn't a problem because it just added a new video to the top of the list, quality invoked videos take the place of another video that might be just as deserving of attention

To avoid abuse I propose making *notquality cost 1 power point as well. Just an idea worth consideration, feel free to trash my suggestion altogether but I still wanted some feedback.

Have YOU had an affair with Tiger Woods too?

A lot of things are happening in the world: the war in Afghanistan, rebuilding Darfur, health care reform, the fight against AIDS, malaria effecting millions, the highest unemployment rates in nearly a century, and that interview on the sift with Pomplamoose. But nothing is more important right now than figuring out exactly who has had an affair with Tiger Woods.

Time to come clean people, this affects us all. I mean, just look at that lack of chest hair.


Just to clear up any confusion, this is supposed to be a tongue in cheek poll. I know that subtle sarcasm can be...well...subtle! So let me end any miscommunication going on here.

I think Tiger Woods is a great golfer but when I heard about the affair business I immediately thought "So what?" and assumed that the media would quickly forget about it. Much to my dismay, they press coverage has been widespread, idiotic, and of course sensational. Suddenly women are coming from all over the place declaring that they too had an affair with Tiger Woods. They shared alleged private conversations and text messages and everyone ate it up.

It's just something I get a little tired of hearing about. I see people have posted things about him being a role model for kids. GUESS WHAT if we didn't sensationalize this crap, kids would never have to know that their favorite golfer was cheating on his wife. Give the guys some privacy ffs.

What do you think of tattoos?

I'd fall under the "tasteful" answer. Some tattoos just boggle my mind. Case in point, The SwayzeCentaur:
