Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

While I realize this is a technical Q & A site, many normally non-political organizations, including the Internet Society and Wikipedia are either opposing or considering opposing the bill, so I wonder if Stack Overflow might be organized to do the same.

There seems to be already a pretty strong consensus that SOPA is bad for SO, so we might also issue a community letter to Congress.

I find it amazing how much of an impact reddit had after they put a small fight censorship banner on their logo. I agree with Merlin2011 – Gabriel Fair Dec 16 '11 at 5:27

I personally don't think it would be off topic to draft a CW letter as an answer to this question. This topic is decidedly about Stack Overflow. Don't forget the chat system is available for extended discussion. – Tim Post Dec 16 '11 at 8:02

Additionally, something like this seems like a good guide for writing one. – Tim Post Dec 16 '11 at 8:04

There should definitely be a banner displayed about this across the top of StackOverflow. – Won't Dec 16 '11 at 14:20
