Sounds like some lovely Spanish tapas, right?
Sorry folks, nothing delicious about this one.
You may have noticed that for a time, Everyday Paleo was completely offline with a strike message. We decided that we don’t want to be totally inaccessible so I have replaced the lockout with a landing page that allows regular site use (obviously, because you are here).
“But this is a recipe and life site and is not the appropriate platform for waging political battles”
I suggest to you that SOPA and PIPA are far FAR more important to you than you may realize. I can’t say anything that hasn’t already been written about SOPA and PIPA. I will suggest that you read up on the two bills and then think how would it affect your Internet habits. I have included a few links that do a good job at explaining it without too much fear-mongering and editorializing. It’s up to you, folks. Do you really think that the “bad guys” of the Internet will stop what they’re doing because of this? If I were a pirate, I’d just move my server, change addresses, use different DNS, use proxy servers etc. Intellectual property theft is a giant problem, a problem that we deal with at Everyday Paleo in fact. However, piracy is not going away with the passage of these two power grab pieces of legislation.
