I support with the approach described.

If you want to actually make a difference, I would suggest at the very least hanging a banner.  "We are closed for the day to protest ..."  Provide a link to senate.gov and house.gov and urge people to contact their legislative team regarding this bill.  Provide the bill numbers so it is easy.

Great idea, particularly with the banner plan.
Over-thinking is a good thing.

While I support the call to action, especially with a direct link to do something about it, please note that quite a lot of us are not US citizens, or even residents and don't have any representation that we can lobby, but will still be "blacked out".

We could lobby our own politicians, but they'll have no effect on US policy making - although SOPA (& PIPA) would still affect us (and them) as well.

If you'd like to include that in any representation you make, I'd be grateful as I am sure many others would!

I found a good solution for what to put up.
I understand the issue of international users, which is something I figured would be discussed.

ZH will be switching to a protest page for approximately 12 hours tomorrow.

I fully support this and euroderby.org already joined the protest. Hosting a derby related website outside the US, containing content provided by third parties I am a potential target for being locked out.
Don't look at the game with rules-tinted glasses; look at the rules with game-tinted glasses!
