eparker05 writes: The well known tech news aggregator Slashdot made a late Tuesday decision to join the SOPA/PIPA blackout protest. Readers of the site overwhelmingly support the decision and see it as a necessary step to prevent pervasive censorship.

Still, this is the first time that Slashdot has closed it's doors in protest of a piece of legislation.

Plus, it also encourages people to keep using obsolete browsers. Just my 2c.
