The Internet SOPA protest was only for January 18th.

Yeah for some people it might just have remained in their cache. And yes the protest was only on Jan 18th. Some sites are still censoring stuff, though, such as one image hosting site that was popular on the old Omnimaga forums.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Well I mean I know it disappeared it just disappeared suddenly without me noticing.
So I guess it was there for the few days up until the end of the 18th.

Oh ok then it's your browser that updated its cache recently. It was definitively there after the 18th, though, although not for very long.

Yeah I noticed that, probably, but also because I'm on Australian time. If it was still there on the 19th it would have most likely still have appeared on the 20th Australian time.

It probably would have still been there in the morning on the 20th Australian time possibly.
I wonder what's happening with SOPA now. It definitely isn't finished, and Megaupload is just one of the causalities as a result

Megaupload actually had nothing to do with SOPA. It was taken down using the methods that currently exist.

True, and it shows even without SOPA they still can take stuff down as they wish. However if they can do this now, I can't imagine how bad this would be if a bill like the SOPA passed...

Yeah but as a result of all the tension of SOPA, there were some casualities, of course it wasn't taken down due to the SOPA law (since it hasn't actually been passed).

EDIT: You're kinda right JosJuice. Megaupload was just taken down for copyright infringement, though the pressure of SOPA at that time may have impacted somehow. It was just coincidental timing.
