    Support this event, it is very important, they want to take control of the internet and block sites as they like.

    It's time to fucking stand up.

    I really don't understand the purpose of this event. How is taking your site offline for 12 hours going to show Congress anything?

    They will hear about it, when most of the major sites go dark. It is a protest.

    That list is not the definite. Wikipedia will most probably go to that protest too, I have heard about it. And everyone uses wikipedia, these days so it's really major. and gog.com goes too.

    Besides this is the more full list(although its less definite, as it seems to include just the suggestions, they don't have it sorted well there):

    You want to say that's not enough? lol

    You better join the strike too.

    Or it will be leotck strikes again I guess...

    I don't see any reason for BU to go on black-out.
    However, I did sign the petition.

    All of them, and they have been doing so for a while. You just get a 'URL not found' page. Talk-Talk recently got caught out for blocking various Torrent sites.

    I've never had a problem with torrent sites and I'm with talk talk.

    The extradition laws in this country are screwy. Politicians keep promising to change them but everyone knows just how much a politician's promise is worth.

    Already signed. Just saw today that SOPA was indeed not shelved. Guess we will find out on the 24th if the internet will have a collective explosion occur.
