Blackout SOPA

To add weight behind the shoal of minor websites shutting down tomorrow in protest at SOPA (wikipedia and reddit, to name two) Darkerside will also be going dark. Or at least, not updating.

Given the ability of the American legal folk to create vague legislation and then hand out astronomical penalties for breaching the footnote on page 47 (ITAR springs to mind), freedom of speech on the web strikes me as something worth standing up for.

In addition, with wikipedia down I’d have nothing intelligent to say anyway.
