SOPA Strike

Hey guys and gals of TFK. For those of you who don't know: Tomorrow (Jan. 18), dozens of websites, including some fairly major ones (most notably Wikipedia), are going to shut down for the day in protest of pair of bills before the US Congress to heavily censor websites across the Internet (SOPA/PIPA). So if some of your favorite websites go down, this is why. For more info see: SOPA STRIKE - Largest online protest in history - January 18

It was kinda of funny to watch the media sites today, most of them just said oh hey wikipedia is down today, due to some bill or something, nothing to see here move along since we support SOPA. When in reality somewhere around 10-15% of content sites were down today and probably another 20% had at least protest banners up pretty massive when you think about it.
