OSNews, Generic OSes ...and we're back. Like so many other sites on the web, OSNews joined the worldwide protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT-IP Act, which threaten to end free speech, economic innovation, privacy, and the free exchange of information on the web. I don't wish to waste too many words on our participation, so consider this item as a sort of comment lightening rod to make sure that when the next story is posted, we can focus fully on its topic. Update: DC seems to be getting the message the internet sent today.

Well, it looks like the 3% of our readers using IE9 (actual statistic) could still read the message ;) .

That effect also broke in Opera 11.60, in the same way.

And, no links were clickable.

(This is at least based on other sites using that protest page - I was going to use it until I saw the problems with it in Opera.)

Same with Opera. But yes, the text was visible ;)

EDIT: Guess someone said it before me, nm.
