I think it was effective. It caught me by surprise and was like a slap in the face. i had to think of other sources. While that wasn't exactly a hardship it made me think about what else I would be missing.
I know mate, just pointing out the irony - Whenever people want to know what something is, they usually look it up on wiki
I looked up SOPA last night. Googled it and it linked Wiki. Do they not have it now?
Wiki is up and running again for me, though it also worked yesterday, just google what you want and click on "Cached" instead of the link itself
