Democratic Underground is OFFLINE.

Democratic Underground is offline from 3am EST to 9pm EST Wednesday January 18 to protest forthcoming Internet blacklist legislation known as SOPA and PIPA.

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) proposed by the U.S. House of Representatives and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) proposed by the U.S. Senate have the potential to severely cripple the free and open Internet. Democratic Underground is proud to join the many websites taking part in today's action to protest these bills by blacking out our site between the hours of 3am EST and 9pm EST.

To learn more about these devastating bills, and for information on how you can help to stop SOPA and PIPA, please visit the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Action Center.

STOP THE INTERNET BLACKLIST LEGISLATION!
AAWWWWW, that's just plain cruel.:D
