You have my support.

I was wondering: will the forums be locked as well?

The plugin I used to black out the main page seems to have left the forums untouched. In the event that someone actually lodged a complaint against Sinister Design under SOPA or PIPA, however, you can be sure that the forums would not be left untouched.

Would that be because of the domain name? Anything under sinisterdesign.net would be affected?

So... it might be helpful to write down the IPs of sites that I know and love which might get accused of harboring pirates?

(Sinister Design's is 208.109.181.70, right?)
