Title: Help Stop SOPA
Post by: Sandcrawler on January 13, 2012, 06:21:02 PM
This website, and Sandcrawler Network (http://sandcrawler.net (http://sandcrawler.net)) will be participating in the SOPA Blackout on January 18th.

(updated) In addition to blacking out most of the day, I have also put togeather a game in protest of SOPA/PIPA. You can download it here (http://allaroundgames.net/index.php?page=sopa).

On the 18th you will be unable to reach this website, instead you will be redirected to a website containing information about how you can help stop SOPA.

If SOPA passes this website may be taken down, the forums will undoubtedly be gone.  Other forums will also disappear at a rapid pace if SOPA is passed, SOPA makes the owner of the website responsible for all content on the website, including forum posts. Meaning if someone even post an image of Spiderman on the forums, or uses it in a signature the website would not only be blocked, but I could be charged.

PS: PIPA is almost the same as SOPA, and also has to be stopped.

PSS. I don't normally get involved in politics, but this effect the internet, something that we should all care greatly about.
