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.

The self censorship on display today was about as practically effective as the government kind.

Now, If I were going to disappear, I'd send everyone a HTTP response code of 410 GONE, and include a statement of protest/yo mama jokes in custom HTTP headers.
