Wrong SOPA targeted by protestersOver the past few weeks, the internet has been aflame with protesters who are against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), with a number of large websites even joining the cause by blacking out their homepages as a display of their stance and to create awareness about the issue. However, it looks like some people still need to learn what they’re really going up against. According to reports online, the website of the Scottish Organic Producers Association (also SOPA) was bombarded with “dozens of nasty and illiterate emails.”

Despite the website having pictures of sheep, vegetables, cattle, and fruit; it looks like all the “protesters” needed was a glance at the site’s URL (sopa.org.uk) to start spewing out their threats. Talk about misdirected anger! On the bright side, at least we know that people have got their hearts set in the right place. Hopefully they take the time to analyze the content of whatever website they choose to protest against in the future.
