On Wikipedia sites appears this message today-

QUOTE
Imagine a World
Without Free Knowledge

For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia. Learn more.

I totally backed Wikipedia when they did this. It's crap that the governments of the world think that they can mandate the flow of information and it's a very slippery slope to be walking in the first place.
