Censorship is ugly. It is a form of oppression. The internet is one of the few places where real expression - good and bad - is permitted without much oversight from outside sources.
The Stop Online Piracy Act or SOPA is trying to deny you your free speech rights. Seriously, it is personal.
"On Jan 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill - PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House - to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity. We need internet companies to follow Reddit's lead and stand up for the web, as we internet users are doing every day."
If you so choose, you can blackout your website or blog tomorrow in support of preserving free speech on the internet.
Tomorrow, I will be posting. But it will be censored.
