Instructables supports SOPA? Say it isn't so! Answered

According to the NoSOPA Chrome extension, this site supports SOPA. Is that true? I was considering a pro account, and would like to know before I put in my card number.

As I said via Twitter, Instructables is definitely not in favor of SOPA.

Our parent company is a bit twitchy on software piracy, but has officially gone on record as being anti-SOPA.

Saying Instructables' parent company is a bit twitchy on software piracy is like saying that alcoholics kind of enjoy a drink every now and again. It's technically true, but an incredible understatement.

Maybe Autodesk should join an APA (Anti-piracy Anonymous) support group?

If they are Anti SOPA, why is the server still sending out the SOPA message?

The server is hosted by a third party. I informed them on Twitter that they should contact the NoSOPA extension developers to get that cleared up, but it may take some time. I hope they do so soon, since I get the heebie-jeebies every time I come here and see that ominous red banner.

Thank God. The digital fascism... I mean SOPA bill is a travesty.
