This happens to me periodically. I don't know how long I've been on DC, but several years, and maybe once or twice a year I have to ask for a new password and use it several times before it "takes". Sometimes I know what happened (a computer crash on my part caused by electrical outage or repair work being done), sometimes it just seems out of the blue. Always gets fixed, but it is frustrating.

Wikipedia is blacking out today, as well as some other sites.

Exactly! At least Google still let you Google, but got their point across.

If it bothers you that much turn off JavaScript in your browser, and you can continue to access Wikipedia. Remember to turn it back on after you're done.

Meanwhile evidently the various protests succeeded because the gummint is backing down on the SOPA and PIPA legislation. You can, um, Google that. (Google news)

Glad to know that I'm not alone in having this happen. It is frustrating, but in the end, all is well. Thanks everyone.
