SIMON: If you were to visit Wikipedia today you'll be greeted by the following message.

"For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopaedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia"

For today only, there is a place... to post your made up facts...
