I am sure several of you if not all realized a lot of sites yesterday were "blacked out". Also you may have noticed I did not post anything as well. Well, it was to show the government our dislike for SOPA ( Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA ( Protect IP Act). Now some of you may not understand what these acts mean and why so many were upset by them. Well, to be honest I did not either at first. You can learn more about SOPA here . Now while I did not black out my page, I did not post to show my support. I had every intention of posting the day before about me " blacking out" but our power went out due to storms so we were "blacked out". I urge you all to show your dislike of this act and sign the petition here.
