When your kids say "Where were you when the government made the internet lame?" you'll hopefully respond with unflinching certainty: "raising hell."

On January 18th members of the House Committee will be discussing PIPA/SOPA in Washington, D.C. and, like many of our friends, Destructoid will be blacking-out in protest of legislation that would allow DNS and Search Engine Blocking. If you think this blog post is annoying and not about videogames, wait until you can't reach our site at all because you won't have the power to decide what websites you can and cannot reach.

Check out the ECA for more info on what gamers can do to fight back.  I'm particularly disappointed in these guys.
