On January 24, 2012 , the SOPA and PIPA bills could be passed. On January 18, 2012, many sites on the internet (including WordPress) will go on strike as a way to show their opposition to SOPA AND PIPA.  There are a variety of ways we can help block the bills. Please go to americancensorship.org and see their Take Action Checklist. U.S. citizens can send an email to congress or, if you are from outside the U.S., you can petition the U.S. state department. You may have also seen censored posts on your travels though the web. The tool to censor your post is also available on this page.

Check out the Stopsopa Standard if you need a refresher about SOPA AND PIPA or you can watch this video.

  1. did you know that wordpress added an options in our settings, on the dashboard, where you can choose to opt in to the black out?
    So now instead of getting nothing if someone comes to my blog tomorrow they will get a nice page with a link to go sign the petition.

    (I had planned to just make it private for the day, I couldn’t figure out what else to do. I had to add something to the actually HTML code on my Create to Heal blog, the page isn’t as pretty, but it gets the message across, and it doesn’t stop and start at a certain time like the WordPress blackout does. I have to go in and change it. So it’s blacked out now…who knows when I would get to it tomorrow!)
    see you in a couple of days.
