PostStrike Against SOPA!!!

As some of you may already know, Congress is voting on an 'Internet censorship' bill this week. It is going by the name of SOPA, which stands for Stop Online Piracy Act. Basically, any site that is using songs or entertainment pieces will be fined or deleted. If this goes through, all of the social networking sites, music sites, and other sites that use trademarks and rights without permission may be destroyed.

I am not entirely sure if that would infect this site. Pray that it will not. We have every right to our free speech, and by passing this bill to law, the government is taking our rights away.

A website has proposed a blackout of the Internet on the 18th. That is this Wednesday!! We are asking you to take part in this. Don't visit any website. In fact, it might be better to avoid your computer altogether up until that point.

For more information, visit the link below. KEEP OUR INTERNET FREE!!!

SOPA Boycott Website


This is a serious issue. Protect your rights to freedom of speech and use. There are already ways to stop people from misusing copyrights, must they push further??

P.S. I might put the website under maintenance that day. That will help people tempted to get online.


Here are the timezones, so that you can know when you can come back on. I seriously hope you know your US.



Pacific- 5AM to 5PM
Mountain- 6AM 6PM
Central- 7AM to 7PM
Eastern- 8AM to 8PM

As far as I know, yes, we are. PIPA is still up for vote. However, I read in that article that the White House was going to veto it if Congress passed it through, and PIPA isn't much different from SOPA, except for their names. Hopefully, this will tell them exactly how we feel about this.

Aye. PIPA is the exact same threat, only made so that the same laws could pass through faster. >n>

C: Yup. Hopefully.

I added time zones so nobody will be confused. This shouldn't be too hard, since most of it's during school, but plan something to keep yourself busy, especially those of us who spend all day here. *whistles innocently*

Google is definitely part of the blackout movement. YouTube seems to be looking like normal, though.

I didn't put it under maintenance because when I got off last night, there were still a bunch of people on, and school was cancelled today, so I didn't have to be up early. However, the technical blackout is over. Hopefully, we made a huge impact on Congress and the Senate.
