SOPA Blackout

I just spent about forty minutes trying to black out this blog for tomorrow, Wednesday, 18 January 2012, in protest over the idiotic legislation in Congress (and supported by the evidently braindead Senator from Iowa but not the other one, at least not yet) — only to discover that WordPress.com users donʼt get plugins (the recommended way to shut down for the day). Only WordPress.org users. So all I can do is declare myself officially blacked out (because I donʼt choose to close down Wakdjunkagaʼs Blog and then start a new blog on Thursday).

Censorship sucks.

The United States of America should not join in the same restrictive international club of domineering tyrant states as China, Iran, North Korea and Saudi Arabia. Freedom of speech is guaranteed in the First Amendment. We must defend that right, responsibly and completely.

Consider us BLACKED OUT in SOPA/PIPA protest. (And I had 1300 words on Budapest Day #3 all ready to go, too.)

* Oh, yeah. If you are reading this on Wednesday, 18 January 2012, donʼt bother with those Wikipedia links…
