    If your reading this and you have large amount of visitors to your site, consider shutting down the site for 1 day to protest SOPA and PIPA.

    Just wondering, what are the chances that PIPA will be implemented? 50%?

    We all need to be united on this front. If you have a traffic site I think it is a good idea to black it out. Post a message why it is blacked out and request that your visitors call or email their Representative.

    Will they server manage to take that huge amount traffic? lol.

    Rename ur index.html/index.php to other name and create a new index.html/.php page write "Protest for SOPA + PIPA. Do the survey now to show your support and get access to my web instant. "
    After that do all redirect to the new page you created.
