Creating SOPA Blackout Plugin (2 posts)

    hi, i was hoping someone might be willing to develop a plugin in protest of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), if you know what that is. if you don't, here are some informative links:

    http://www.defendtheinter.net/ (watch video)

    many video game-related sites and larger sites, like reddit, are planning on doing an internet blackout next week, january 18th. what the plugin would entail is 12 hours of websites not showing their regular content but linking instead to information about SOPA and how it is harmful to the internet as we know it. i think a lot of wordpress bloggers would potentially be affected by this.

    i imagine many more people would be into doing a SOPA blackout if it was made easier, and i'm hoping someone will take a couple hours to help develop a plugin for wordpress. this plugin -- http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/registered-users-only/ -- forces non-registered users to login before they can reach the site. i imagine something similar can be used as a blackout (but obviously not allowing people to login)?

    if anyone can help it would be muuuch appreciated. i will check back here or feel free to write me at letters@redefinemag.com -- running out of ideas and time! the bill goes to be voted on on january 24th.

    thank you very much.
