Default ...and we're back. The SOPA/PIPA Blackout was a success!

Thanks for the support on Facebook and Google+, everyone. We put a big dent in SOPA/PIPA, but the fight isn't over yet. Enjoy this victory:

With all the internet protests today I really think the message got out to those not in the know.

I agree, Paul. It was Google&Wikipedia, I think, that did most of the work. Almost every Google search results in a Wikipedia link being one of the first few hits. I just don't comprehend how 99% of everyone sane opposes SOPA/PIPA, but they are still being talked about... You'd think with all of the noise everyone is making, they'd just die and be thrown out.

Don't forget Reddit. Reddit is huge, and they started the whole blackout. <3 Reddit!
