I do not really think that he is pussying out, more like taking half-steps.
I am INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just something I made regarding what would happen if SOPA passes.
I hope SOPA fails, if it passes then internet will be ruined...or at least permanently scarred for life.

Is NG going to be down all day then?
Hell, 8am - 8am is alright, so long as I can deposit my experience every day, I'm happy.
More or less.
well 8am-8pm isn't that bad
at least i can get experience tomorrow
WOO go Newgrounds stickin' it to the man!
the blackout is a great idea
it'll really put the point across to everyone that comes on here when they see that ng is blacked out

Might as well go all the way. People won't really get the full force of the impact of not having a Newgrounds if they can just dance around it. At least take the BBS off as well.
I wanna join in on this protest, but since I suck at Technical and Mathmatical things, I have no Idea how to black out my Youtube and Newgrounds page for the day. Can someone tell me how I can black out my Newgrounds Page?
Nice to hear NG is on board on the "Blackout" Bandwagon. I'm also gonna help the cause by turning off my twitter account, sorry to ALL my 53 followers but I gotta do what's right.
Hell yeah! anyway, the portal would be spammed with 'Plz sopa don pass :'(' videos.
Well if it does pass , we should all value our time on the webs :(

As far as blacking out, Wikipedia and Reddit are the only ones I know so far. Google is doing something for it but it's not blackout.

That's so Newgrounds.
Health Department: We're getting ready to shut you down! Get ready, pal!
Restaurant: I don't like that at all...to protest, I'm gonna shut myself down!
Again, I'm glad your going through with this Tom. Surely some questions will be raised with the blackout of this site and others and then the lot of people will know what what SOPA and PAIA are about.
It will show the impact to the people that use the site regularly, but in the eyes of the government Newgrounds being offline wont do much, if anything. Sites like google, facebook, youtube and twitter will make the government shit in their pants. Basically any site that is used for communication will really hold an impact on the government itself. Its really showing the users what would happen if the front page was gone for 12 hours
