Kill SOPA, save America's Internet and American jobs: ACT NOW, bill goes to the House TOMORROW

There is a bill being considered by congress currently that could seriously jeoparidze the functionality of the Internet in general, and the livelihood of this site in particular.  It's called SOPA.  Here's the scoop from Tiffiniy at American Censorship:

"Tomorrow, the US government will vote to have broad powers to block any site. SOPA would not only hurt free speech, it will choke off the internet workforce and its readers by taking down entire websites. Today is the only day we have left to have our voices heard. It's time to pull all stops - please make a call right now to protest censorship. Your call matters. If you don't call, SOPA will pass. If there is one call per minute into every one of our representatives, we have a chance of stalling SOPA enough so it dies for quite some time. Please call Congress now and tell them you oppose internet censorship and stifling the internet. If you own a site, you're in the best position to spread the word. Please post this call widget. If we're really going to stop SOPA, we need you to get involved. If you write emails or have a blog, or if you post to Facebook, twitter, tumblr, tell everyone by blacking out your text here. It's super easy. SOPA kills jobs that we need right now and blocks sites to Americans for the purpose of serving copyright in vague and overbroad ways, in ways that are not even well-agreed on by academics in the field. Please help us stop SOPA now."

We couldn't agree more.  Please take a moment (the average call to your congressman lasts 53 seconds) and tell your friends.
