    Is it just me, or does that text seem to imply that most of the tech industry is in favor of SOPA?

    Clicking on “Leaderboard” says that there’s a list of Representatives that have been graded. Where is the list?  Is it under development?  Is this website still “under construction”?

    Better laws…better for whom?

    Sounds like an astro-turfing platform to me.

    I’m not in the US, but if I was, I wouldn’t want a Time-Warner publication acting as my political intermediary.

    Eek.  Or maybe I’m wrong about tech lobbies being the best place to look fo legislative criteria.

    I’d like to see more details on the methodology.  For example, from the first page of candidates why does Eric Cantor get a better grade than Gary Ackerman?  The information they list makes Ackerman’s tech record look better.

    They gave Kevin McCarthy a B record and he has said he would support SOPA or laws like it and he voted for CISPA. He even went to a fundraiser sponsored by the RIAA. That’s an F in my book.
