I dare saying that our blackout is much better quality then the one on Wikipedia :-)  -it's not just some piece of js, I really can't access to anything! I hope that those overkill projects SOPA and PIPA won't become a law.

Dear all,

many of you will already be aware of the upcoming global protest against
two proposed United States laws, called SOPA and PIPA. As Wikimedia put
it: "These bills endanger free speech both in the United States and
abroad, setting a frightening precedent of Internet censorship for the
world." More background information on why this is a threat to free and
open wiki sites is provided by Wikipedia [1].

Semantic MediaWiki is taking these matters most seriously, and will join
Wikipedia and many other sites [2] in a global strike against these
proposals. This means that content of semantic-mediawiki.org will not be
available from tomorrow (Wed, Jan 18) morning to Thursday morning.

If you are a US citizen, you may want to take direct action, e.g., using
the Web forms that will be provided on striking sites.

Best regards,
