Librarians hate censorship. Well, GOOD librarians hate censorship. I'd like to think I'm at least a decent librarian, so I'm not really a huge fan of the proposed SOPA/PIPA acts. Simply put, they just seem like a really, really, really bad idea. Read up on them if you haven't already.
A lot of websites, including Wikipedia, are blacking themselves out today in protest. I am not sure if enough people look at my site on any given day to justify doing that (plus, um, I have no idea HOW to do that). Instead, I will use this little site to encourage you to take action by contacting your elected officials (you can locate your senators here) and urging them to not support these measures. Google has also created an online petition that makes it really easy to speak up against this. Sign it! Feels good!
Thank you for your attention. Side note: I almost typed "Say No to SOAP" in my blog title and it made me realize how easy it would be to make that mistake. Remember, kids: SOAP is good. SOPA is bad. I hope I've prevented some olfactory tragedies with this message.
