In addition to information and links about SOPA and PIPA, the following quotation appears on an Anonymous website:
I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! no! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; — but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD.
— William Lloyd Garrison
This is the urgency with which we must oppose the SOPA and PIPA legislation.

Powerful words indeed, PT, and so moving. What a battle cry!
I don’t know who dug the words from the dustbin of American history, but they are certainly apropos today.
