Very few people know what any of the laws are and that includes the legislators that pass them.

I contacted my three federal legislators when this first came on the scene last year. Since I live in California they are pretty much bought and paid for by the interests behind SOPA/PIPA so I was not expecting much. Sadly there are not very many here in the US that actually take the time to let their representatives know what they want them to do.

I really hope that the next 20 odd hours left help to get a few million people to get off there arse and do something. Now usually they don't listen, but if there are thousands of calls, emails, and hopefully a few actual letters they will get the message.

Keep up the good work.
