SOPA

So Wikipedia, Google, WIRED, Mozilla, and thousands of other websites went dark or had big signs advocating against SOPA today.  All I could think of was that the proponents of SOPA had better get a much bigger microphone, cause what looks like the whole internet is against this piece of legal excrement.

I’ve not covered this, and I won’t say anything else on the subject.  I will, however, conclude this with a quote:  “Never pick a fight with a man who buys his ink by the barrel.”

It’s a bit dated (it’s attributed to Benjamin Franklin – no idea if that’s true though) but I think that it’s rather fitting for this situation.
