I'll be updating this post throughout the day with more images of sites that have joined the SOPA blackout. Leave a comment with any site you'd like to be added to the gallery, which will remain here after the blackout is over. Also note that these are "above the fold" screencaps--if you have full-page captures, please feel free to send them, and I will try to get as many of those myself as possible by the end of the day.
Click an image to see a larger version. And if you've been here before, you might want to head on to page 2 of the gallery.

2600 has sliding text. The full content reads:
2600 is unavailable. We've joined a 24 hour darkness campaign in protest of bills like SOPA and PIPA. Such bills could make sites like ours permanently dark. You may have heard that the battle is won, that SOPA and PIPA have no chance of passage. Don't be misled.
Your actions and awareness have already made a HUGE difference, but bills like these will always be around in every corner of the globe, waiting for the net community to let down its guard.
This show of solidarity is only one way to demonstrate our power and the willingness of people to stand together. Thanks for being a part of it by reading. Please learn more at this site. To join the protest, visit here. To contact your elected representative, go to https://blacklists.eff.org
