View Full Version : SOPA Blackout

January 18th, 2012, 18:03
Gee, we missed our chance to join the 1000's of other websites to protest the SOPA legislation.

I only learned of it when trying to access Wikipedia today, and just now to Reddit. While I haven't formulated an opinion on the legislation, I must say that the widespread blackout of just about every relevant site sure is an effective social engineering experiment to raise awareness of a topic. Maybe a gimmick, maybe a statement, but it sure worked!

I had seen a few days ago that the big players were
going to do the black out/black something or other.

I pondered it for 2 days and decided against it because
it is currently only a USA issue and most people would panic
if I turned the front door black with the words in red.


They will keep on trying and they will never succeed.
The words I spoke years ago at ReCon are still true.

It's to late to cage the beast.

I'm so full of myself .
