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 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.

    There should definitely be a banner displayed about this across the top of StackOverflow.
