    DHS Siezes 84,000 Innocent Web Sites to put up Child Porn Notice

    Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere, but a search didn't come up with it.
    It looks like those geniuses at Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano-Head Genius, are at it again. They seized a domain that allegedly had 10 sites hosting child porn. This was on a shared service, so all the sub domains, and other innocent sites hosted there, also got seized. A child pornography notice replaced the site content. About 84,000 innocent people and small businesses have now had their reputation damaged from those boneheads. Even a child day care business had that notice put up on their site. Of course, the repair will take longer due to DNS migrations and search engine caches.
    Reference.

    Can't wait 'til the government takes over my health care!

    Wow that would be a nightmare if a site was hosted on that box. Having clients visit you site and be warned about child porn.

    First they came for the hackers.
    But I never did anything illegal with my computer,
    so I didn't speak up.

    Then they came for the pornographers.
    But I thought there was too much smut on the Internet anyway,
    so I didn't speak up

    Then they came for the anonymous remailers.
    But a lot of nasty stuff gets sent from anon.penet.fi,
    so I didn't speak up.

    Then they came for the encryption users.
    But I could never figure out how to work PGP anyway,
    so I didn't speak up.

    Then they came for me.

    And by that time there was no one left to speak up.

    Basically DHS shut down the domain of a free DNS provider.
