Today's post is more of a statement than a comical removal of eyebrows. I'm sure by now you've all heard about SOPA and PIPA, two bills running through Congress and the Senate right now. To me, these bills represent the worst kinds of thoughtlessness in American politics. Politicians supporting these bills either don't know enough about the Internet's infrastructure, or they don't care after getting payoffs from special interest groups and lobbyists.
So, in an effort to bring some sanity to this country, I'm joining with other (much larger and louder) websites in today's protest of these bills. I urge any of my readers to either call their congressperson and/or sign the petition against SOPA. If these bills pass, sites like mine—as well as your freedom of speech—would be in jeopardy.
