Protesting the Censorship of SOPA and PIPA

Today many websites are trying different techniques to draw attention to the SOFA and PIPA bills before the House and Senate that would, if passed, effectively censor and force the shutdown of hundreds of thousands of websites, probably including favorites like YouTube and why not Facebook.

As you attempt to view this post and all other posts on the home page of this site, you will see black CENSOR bars placed over much of the text. Hover over any of the black boxes and click on it. A window will appear with links to educate you about SOPA and PIPA, how to contact your Representative, as well as provide opportunity to Twitter.

Unless you prefer to leave the black boxes up, once you have clicked on a black box, all of them will be gone, even the next time you visit the site.

I got this idea from a press release sent to me by Amy Ridenour of the National Center for Public Policy Research. They are also participating in the censorship protest.
