Comments: This is a Bad Thing

Interesting story, Delfts. Scary that people can be so knee-jerk at times. But... bad link. Couldn't read the CSM story.

You're right, things seldom go right once the government intrudes, another helping of taking away freedoms in the interest of public safety.

I'd take that claim of Homeland Security with a whole salt-shaker of salt. Remember the New Jersey school that was claiming that No Child Left Behind was why they were dropping spelling bees, because only one child could win? They get a twofer: lower standards and blame it on BusHitler.

Similarly, I'd really like to get a take on the politics of this ISP's owner(s). After all, BusHitler likes the Iranian dissidents, so they must be evil.

Kinda makes a person wonder if this server isn't the same one who went way out of its way to protect IndyMedia when some of their participants made threats construed as of a potentially dangerous nature. But since the Iranian bloggers tend to be pro-American, they're the real enemy, not the twits and asshats at "that other site."

SDN, I do believe you are on to something here.
