We just noted how Rep. Mike Rogers, the sponsor for the CISPA cybersecurity bill that wipes out a variety of privacy protections for companies handing private info to the government had told the House Rules Committee that the only real opposition was 14-year-olds in their basement
. It seems that many opponents to CISPA think Rogers is ignorant. A campaign quickly went viral on Twitter in which people are tweeting at Rep. Rogers' account
about how they're not 14, not in their basement, but still very much opposed to CISPA. In just an hour or so, there have been well over 1,500 tweets, and the number keeps growing rapidly. By the time this post is edited and live, it will almost certainly be well over 2,000 and growing.
Those are just two quick screenshots showing some of the top complaints. That's not me pulling out a few, those were just the most recent ones and new ones keep piling up.
Perhaps Congressman Mike Rogers might want to rethink his assessment of the opposition and recognize that maybe there are legitimate privacy concerns that he has chosen to not properly address in his bill.
