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.
