    I don't know how many of you are on tumblr, but it can be a very dedicated group of people. For example, SOPA garnered a huge amount of attention from that site alone.

    Granted, it's a bunch of teenage girls shooting off at the mouth half the time. But the political ramifications could be endless.

    I know Obama has his own page (although I don't follow it anymore, too one sided for me, and it's just promotion stuff.)

    Zero effect.

    Maybe even less.

    I think you mean Reddit?

    They have been the main political influence over the whole SOPA thing and they are the ones who had enough and destroyed GoDaddy.
