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.

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.
