Website black-outs!

I'm sure many of you have seen the black-outs occurring across the Internet today in protest of this horrendous SOPA/PIPA bills. I am in full support of these websites because I believe in a fair, open and free Internet. Any attempts at censorship can be a slippery slide into tyranny!

So I'm urging all US citizens to take a stand and help protect the Internet! There are numerous ways to do this, so just have a quick Google (which is also participating in the black-out, but just on their logo) and see what you can do. I'm sure the links that Google provides on their logo will show you how, also Wikipedia has a pretty informative page on the SOPA/PIPA bills. So check them out!

  4. Spreading awareness for SOPA is always a good thing. This bill cannot be allowed to pass.
