    I used your "stop sopa" plugin on my wordpress.org site on the intended dates. it worked great! the problem i am having now, is when ever I post a link to facebook, and/or share a post from my site, it still wants to post a "Stop SOPA" link and image.. I have uninstalled the plugin, then completely deleted it from my server. I cleared all cookies and cache in my browsing history.. it still will not work. how do i fix this? Thanks!

    Hi! I'm having the same exact problem and cannot find the answer. I have done all of the things this user has posted and I am still not seeing any change. As far as I can tell it stems from this .php file, but it's not anywhere on my server.

    Can you guys share links to your websites? I am not able to reproduce this issue. Thank you.

    It appears that Facebook had the SOPA redirect cached in its information about your URL. When I first tried to share your URL, I got the same result you did. However, after running your URL through the Facebook debugging tool (https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug - which also has the advantage of clearing out and recreating Facebook's cache of link data), it appears to have fixed the issue.
