It's sad to see that Elecbyte and their community don't care about SOPA and they still think the blackout was days ago when it's happening right now.

Fuck elecbyte and the shitty mugen community.

That's okay. I agree, and I think most of the people here would do.

So this is what it would feel like if SOPA/PIPA passes... I just uploaded something too.

If this shit passes, I'm moving to another country.

I really liked explosm's take on it because it's true. Just to think what could be lost in just creativity if such bills are passed and enforced.

Google's blackout is a new logo, and Wiki's is a javascript-ed cover which can be bypassed by disabling javascript. Weak.

clgaming.net of League of Legends fame participated yesterday, though I could be wrong.

Also, Congressman Jared Polis apparently plays League of Legends. Who knew?

LiveJournal and Equestria Daily have changed their banners (and EqD will not have any updates today), Tumblr is giving you the option to blackout your blogs for the day, and DA has a discussion going on.

Do you have a link that says DA are planning to blackout?

What I don't get is that the front page is a blackout but how come we can access any other part of the site? Wiki for example doesnt let you onto any english pages but NG seems to be just front page blackout. Not wanting to start something, just noticed and was curious why this is

The hardcore users will figure out they can still use the site. Our bandwidth usage is way down which shows many people aren't getting past the blackout page.

Nowhere in that article does it mention DA are taking part in the blackout.

BTW, you can bypass the Wiki blackout too. You just have to fiddle with the ESC key when loading a page.

If you want to help stop them from passing, click the image in my sig. It's a small way, but it'll help spread the word.
