Not a big politics fan, but I do want to thank BoardGameGeek for the blackout.

If anyone remembers what happened between BGG and GamesWorkshop, it could have gone much more poorly if either SOPA or PIPA were enacted. Please take a minute to learn about the potentially devastating nature of what both SOPA and PIPA could do to websites and communities like this everywhere.

Here is a bit of information:

I think the extra screen was a good middle way between doing nothing and shutting everyone out from the site entirely, so thanks.

We all care deeply about this...... but not enough to lose access to the site all day. That would really suck.
