    I like this compared to many other Stop SOPA offerings. This is minimal and not too intrusive. Do you know if this is available as a WordPress plugin? If not, would you mind if I create one quickly from your jQuery plugin?

    it’s a little late, but I could probably get it into the WordPress plugin directory within a couple hours.
