What is SOPA? Why Was This Site Blacked Out?

Hey folks!

You might have noticed that for 24 hours, my site was blacked out...














If you are as lost on this issue as many folks out there, or you answer "Don't use it, I use bodywash" when someone asks you "What do you think about SOPA?", get yourself educated, take a few minutes and watch these videos...





A bit more:





And finally:





Now you know. Love it or hate it, it's things like SOPA and PIPA that censor what you are able to do right now. Read this blog. Comment freely. Allow me to screenshot and post images. Allow me to have an opinion without a threat of recourse from our government, and post what I want, when I want, and how I want.

If bills like these would pass, this site and many others you read would be government censored. We don't want that, do we? I sure don't....

I don`t understand why you would black out your site. Other than us gold nerds, nobody really reads this. I mean no offense here, just that you are way too small to mean anything by this action.

Handera,

The same reason I vote...although I am only one person, I can make a difference.

Get registered. =)

I blacked out my site too, and I only have a few hundred daily readers. It's not the size of the audience that matters, but the statement.

I for one want everybody that can read to understand what SOPA is, and why it needs to be stopped.

Stop censorship. Support freedom.
