IMPORTANT: If you know us at all, you know we are not controversial or political types - we just want to bring you the best quality available when it comes to movement training and fitness. However, when something huge comes along and threatens the means by which we use provide our service to you, we must take action to defend ourselves - even through protest. So tomorrow on Jan.18, 2012, GymnasticsWOD will go dark along with thousands of other websites to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and its sibling the Protect IP Act (PIPA).
If you know what SOPA and PIPA is and understand its implications, we hope you can take a moment to contact your local representative and voice your opinion about the damage this act of censorship will have. If you don't know, please take a moment to learn and do something about it.
Some of you may be thinking - oh well I'm not from the United States, so it's no big deal here. Well, it IS a big deal - in the past year alone only about two-thirds of the visits to GymnasticsWOD are from the United States. So that means about one-third of you who are outside of the U.S.A could also suffer if SOPA & PIPA becomes law. The internet is a global channel, and we need to make sure it stays open for everyone.
Thanks for your time and support.
