    While I whole heartedly agree with the message being sent out here, I didn't want to completely disrupt the site for the majority of users (especially those in foreign lands).

    So, for those of you that are in the states, PLEASE write your congressman/woman and let them know you do not approve of the bill. Sites like R1DB would obviously suffer from this type of legislation and make this, a fun hobby for most, a page in censorship history.

    click the image below, and send an email to your representatives!

    Yeah, Wikipedia went dark today to protest. I shudder to think of all those book reports that won't get done today!

    You can work around it :) - the mobile version is available and so are most of the foreign language sites.

    I think the biggest and most noteworthy was google.

    Some of my streaming video site also went dark also, this is why we need to remove every member of congress and senate and above this time around, too much stupidity.
