Liberty Web Alliance on Cop Block’s 3-Year Anniversary

The post below was originally published to LibertyWebAlliance.com (LWA). Our friends at LWA have been integral to the growth and impact of CopBlock.org – and more importantly, to the spread of the ideas behind this decentralized project.

In addition to hosting CopBlock.org and providing much behind-the-scenes IT support, LWA hosts and helps get off-the-ground many of the Cop Block offshoots that have websites.

To be clear, without LWA, Cop Block wouldn’t be what it is today. If you have the means, consider supporting their efforts.

It is with mixed emotions we celebrate CopBlock‘s 3rd anniversary of educating people that “badges don’t grant extra rights”.

  • On the one hand, it’s encouraging to see how many people have been reading CopBlock and how it has grown.
  • On the other hand, as Pete Eyre would say, we would rather a day come when this type of public spotlight and activism is no longer needed.

So it is with optimism and sadness that CopBlock must continue on.

CopBlock Analytics

copblock analytics 3 year CopBlock Hits 3 Year Anniversary

Right now the site is averaging about 4,500 visits per day. We hate doing the whole begging for money thing but just remember that keeping a site with this amount of traffic up-and-running,  loading quick, and secure from attacks is expensive in both time and money. If you place value on our impact please support us.

We believe in this so much that we do this whether the community support it or not but it sure makes it easier when we aren’t alone.

CopBlock Groups

There are also dozens of CopBlock sub groups that have sprung up.
