STOP SOPA (READ DESCRIPTION)

TO CLARIFY: The purpose of letting the site go dark would be to give people the opportunity to let them write their congressmen and women and senators to protest this legislation. SOPA will give the federal government the authority to censor websites like this one if any copyrighted material is posted. This blackout would just be a taste of what is to come if the legislation passes.

TL;DR: The blackout might be permanent if SOPA passes

we are going to protest censorship of the internet by removing the internet from ourselves? That's a bit like giving a thief your money so he doesn't steal it.
