Is I-A-B Going Dark To Support SOPA/PIPA?

Hey I-A-B,


So are we doing dark today like Wikipedia, Fark, Boing Boing, Reddit and many other sites–the answer is… ugh, sorta. Unfortunately, I don”t own I-A-B–if I did, I”d join in immediatly. Also, I don”t have access to the backend of the site that would allow me to shut the site off for a day–that”s what the code monkeys are for.


Pretty much, the only thing I can do is, for every normally scheduled boobie and cat post I-A-B puts up, we can counter it with a SOPA/PIPA-related awareness post directing you to pages with far more knowledge about this situation that I can come up with.


If you guys have any SOPA-related content you want to share today, PLEASE submit it and I, or one of the other Mods will get it up.


Fight the power! –Fancy

The answer is… sorta.

    Wikipedia isn`t down. Once a page loads it redirects to the SOPA "dark" page. But if you search for something and then stop the page loading as soon as it loads you can still access it as usual.

    Boobies & cats... you couldn`t put up photos of something I liked?

    As a form of protest, Fancylad should post nude, baring his soul as it were, and post the pics here.

    Show of hands in favor...

    Mr_Pedo_Bear: AFAIK, Fancy has never owned the website. I think that ol` Buddy did, and then sold it to DemandMedia.

    I wondered where the pictures went!

    No price too high, no sacrifice too great: for freedom!

    Double post GO!

    So, if this passes I guess TOR`s gonna be the default mode of Internet usage.

    I never bothered to find out; what ever happened to Buddy? I heard he sold out or something of that sort.

    Thanks for doing this. Might actually bring some awareness to people (though complainers will still complain of course). Good balance of awareness and keeping the feel of the site.

    I think you also blacked out the thumbnails - am I right?

    By the way, very valuable information you`ve provided today in place of boobs fancy - I can always find them somewhere else.

    (now if the PORN industry participated in the blackout, that would really shake the foundations, wouldn`t it?)
