A brief PSA to my fellow USians

There is some legislation being considered right now which would allow the government to begin censoring the internet.

It's aimed at preventing copyright infringement, but there is enormous potential for abuse, and it will likely affect you.

 It is really important that we all:

1) Follow what's going on with the Stop Internet Piracy and the PROTECT IP Acts.

And

2) Contact our reps to tell them to vote against this bill.

This legislation currently has far too much support and is, in fact, expected to pass. Congress is holding hearings on it today. In response to this outrageous tomfoolery, today has been designated American Censorship Day, a day of action.

Get on it, my comrades of internetty goodness.
