Tomorrow from 8am – 8pm EST theCHIVE will be joining the internet to protest SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). The proposed bill, which will be voted on next month, is censorship at its very worst and the passing of this bill has far reaching negative implications for yours truly here at theCHIVE as well as many other sites, big and small.

Just because theCHIVE is going dark tomorrow doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit theCHIVE. It’s never been more important, in fact.

Tomorrow, theCHIVE will transform itself into an online petition; you can easily email your local representatives to articulately express your outrage at this Draconian bill. There will be recap and open discussion of SOPA in the DAR when the blackout lifts.

    What happened to that whole "transform itself into an online petition" idea?

  • Kevin in Omaha

    Obama wants to control every aspect of our lives. This bill is simply a continuation of his program of undermining the constitution and making all of us dependent upon the government for everything.

  • Joe

    Well done Chive. Well done indeed.

    Well done Chive. I was planning on email my various congress people and Senators, but quickly found that the Internet took up arms very well and the first site (Dianne Feinstein) was brought to a halt due to traffic. I called them all and hopefully many many mroe did the same.
