I know many of you – myself included – look at “online protests” and immediately think “oh fuck off, I’m at work, my lumbar region is whack, I just want something to take my mind off my gruel, so shove your high-minded principles up your ass and GET BACK TO ENTERTAINING ME!!!”
Being a guttersniping old sop who was a kid in the 1970s, I totally get it, but today’s blog will be purposely not written to protest the sickening legislation that is SOPA and PIPA. Wikipedia, Reddit, and many other sites are going black today for the same reason. Read this or this for more information if you don’t get what the fuss is about.
Seriously, having Congress in charge of what we can and can’t do on the internet is like letting a passel of opossums do your estate planning. Contact your congressperson!
