The proper SOPA blackout

I think it is silly for reddit, google, FB etc to go dark on the 18th to protest SOPA.

Instead, they should all block any and all sites, supporters and supporting media of SOPA.

Drop all traffic from CNN, EA, Sony etc.. that support SOPA.

Why drop valid inet traffic when you can show all the idiots who support SOPA where their traffic really comes from. Plus it should be a week not a day.

good idea but need some type of IP blacklist

Why not both?
