So evidently WordPress is joining the long list of websites which are blacking out to protest SOPA. Go to the “freshly pressed” section and everything shows up as a bunch of black bars and the word “censored” stamped on top. Rock on! SOPA would destroy the internet as we know it, and while boycotts and protests aren’t guaranteed to kill this bill, they’ve certainly raised the profile enough that even casual internet users are becoming more aware of what’s going on. Let’s hope for once popular opinion will win out over corporate money and this bill will die a nasty death.
