I thought it important to post today, since Dreamwidth doesn't have a banner or any information about opposing SOPA/PIPA. I encourage you to contact your legislators to ask them to oppose this legislation, which is a serious danger to free speech of all sorts. You can go to the Wikipedia site and enter your zip code to get contact information (Wikipedia itself is down, of course). Good information also available here: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/01/

I told the lucky person answering the phone in the office of my two senators that I would not vote for them (or donate money to them) in the future unless they change their stance. Happily, my representative in Congress, the amazing and wonderful Keith Ellison, opposes the bills. I called to thank him.
