I am amazed at how few sites in the bitcoin community are not supporting the blackout today.  I just visited most of the other pools and several bitcoin blog sites, and it seems only BitcoinPool is supporting the SOPA blackout. We would like to encourage other pools or bitcoin related sites to join us in doing so.

We think it boils down to this: If they get the equipment in place and legislation passed then what will stop them from censoring port 8333 instead of port 53?  A few thousand angry bitcoin users?

BitcoinPool is not doing a complete blackout, but every page on the site will have a blackout overlay until you click on it.

http://bitcoinmedia.com/ We made a song for it (see page) Cheesy

Intersango wanted to do a blackout too, but we couldn't because:
- Our legal policy is that we give 5 days notice of any downtime.
- Site changes have to be tested. Changing the code for an exchange is not a light matter.
