Greetings!! TheLulzBoat has been docked and the lulzflags have been raised. Americans have brought to our attention the issue of CISPA. We were sent this list -> https://pastebin.com/tF7J6MHk <- In utter disgust of the language in the CISPA bill we have decided to act. We are here to show the companies exactly how CISPA feels when used against us. We understand CISPA was not passed. This is still an issue. These companies have continued to support all internet censorship bills. It is time to take action. The internet was made to be a FREE and OPEN service for the world to use at the USERS will. Our first target is unique. They are part of the "Wireless Alliance". They angered us because they are hosted outside the United States but have a say in American policy. That company is DOCOMO. DOCOMO is the predominant mobile phone operator in Japan. The name is officially an abbreviation of the phrase, "do communications over the mobile network", and is also from a compound word dokomo, meaning "everywhere" in Japanese. Docomo provides phone, video phone (FOMA and Some PHS), i-mode (internet), and mail (i-mode mail, Short Mail, and SMS) services. The company has its headquarters in the Sanno Park Tower, Nagatacho, Chiyoda, Tokyo.
