Why can't blogs disappear for SOPA?

There will be no Wikipedia on the internet tomorrow. It's going to be blacked out to protest S.O.P.A., the Stop Online Piracy Act, which will ruin the internet if it is passed by congress. I think this is a great protest message.

So why isn't Blogger offering a way to block out our blogs tomorrow? Wouldn't it be a powerful message if all your (and my) favorite blogs disappeared for a day? I can't believe they missed the boat with this one. It would have been so simple: create a way for our blogs to disappear for one day, and let us put up a SOPA protest message in their place.

Sadly, this blog will still be here tomorrow. Boo, Blogger!
