    We have become a technology society. And everything we do is on a computer; including work. We have no paper any longer! Sustainability : )

    That is really annoying. It affects so many users. :(

    I was kinda loling when I heard protesting was banned after the school protests in montreal a few weeks ago. We had one of those in the states a few months ago where all the popular sites, like wikipedia, turned off their services for the day to protest the copyright laws. I dont think it was too successful. because the legislators will bring the same crap up under a different name when the uproar dies down.

      The blackout we had was really annoying being as I work with computers. It was to help raise awareness and protest against SOPA and PIPA. Google, Reddit and tons of other smaller sites joined together to raise awareness about it.

        That’s too bad it was annoying for you~ I do wonder a little bit about the effectiveness of blacking out one’s website. But when I heard it was a chance to participate, since I have my own website, I was thrilled to be able to join in – – even if just a little. :)

      If the legislators come back – all we gotta do is be ready for ‘em. :) There’s no single action that’ll make everything perfect. Gotta slug it out. ‘Never say die,’ right?

        I found the blacking out effective only because it actually did raise awareness of an issue I had no idea about. (Shhh: I have an aversion to anything politics related) So in the sense that it caused me to click the black out banner and read about it, I will give it a thumbs up.

    Is commenting violating the blackout?
