I'd like to write a long, impassioned post on the whole SOPA/PIPA issue that's exploded this week. So many people have already raised their voices to counter the corporate and legislative restriction of the open Internet, but if the rest of us say "Oh, I don't have to do anything now, other people are speaking out," eventually, no one except the most extremist voices on each side will say anything. And that's unacceptable.

Unfortunately, I'm in such an emotional state right now that I'm sure to regret anything I post, and I can't battle that anxiety on top of everything else I have to do this weekend. I just can't find the words.

So, what do we do in times like this? We share animated .gifs and vids, of course! Because sharing is the online way!

[ETA: dammit, embed codes are not working for me today so here are the links.]
