Homeland Security shuts 84,000 websites
[link to tech.blorge.com]

Shutting down websites which promote or disseminate child pornography is clearly a good thing. But not when 84,000 websites are dragged down with the 10 that are actually being targeted.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Justice (DOJ) yesterday announced it had seized the domains of 10 websites “engaged in the advertisement and distribution of child pornography.” The crackdown was part of Operation Protect Our Children.

However, the press release completely glosses over the fact that 84,000 other websites, innocent of any wrongdoing, were also affected by the crackdown. According to TorrentFreak, the huge error saw thousands of domain owners publicly accused of having links to online child pornography thanks to a banner that all the affected sites were redirected to.

It took two days for the error to be corrected, and a further three days for the banner to disappear completely from the sites. However, the ‘This domain name has been seized by ICE’ message is still showing up in search results.


Fucking fail.

If they close all the kiddie porn sites, what will the DHS employees do with all that time they're not doing their jobs?

Man, I have zero sympathy for kiddie porn. I'm sorry that's where my civil liberty meter falters. I grant you, there are times when people get unjustly accused, I understand that, but these were sites promoting child pornography, screw 'em in the neck.
The fact the other 84K were inadvertently caught up in this is unfortunate. DHS gets one right in my book. Eradicate that crap. Just do a better job of using the technology.

BANE THIS GUY.
The Truth About Thread: The FINAL EVENTS Of Bible Prophecy

"We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist." - Martin Luther (Aug. 18, 1520)

"While God has given ample evidence for faith, He will never remove all excuse for unbelief. All who look for hooks to hang their doubts upon will find them. And those who refuse to accept and obey God's Word until every objection has been removed, and there is no longer an opportunity for doubt, will never come to the light" (The Great Controversy, p. 527).

"Jesus did not come to change the law, but he came to explain it, and that very fact shows that it remains, for there is no need to explain that which is abrogated." - Charles Spurgeon

"Jesuit Adam Weishaupt established the modern version of the Illuminati specifically to be a front organization behind which the Jesuits could hide. After being formally abolished by Pope Clement XIV in 1773, the Jesuits used the Illuminati and other organizations to carry out their operations. Thus, the front organizations would be blamed for the trouble caused by the Jesuits."

And if it was YOUR blog that got shut down, with a banner implying that you were distributing child porn, for all your friends and family to see, you'd STILL be OK with this abuse of power. Stop grandstanding on the kiddie porn issue. Sure you're against it. You're against murder and rape too. Don't be such an obsequious idiot.

No, you have a valid point. No need to call me a 'obsequious idiot', I could use the term for your 'knee jerk' extreme civil libertarianism. Inadvertently these people were lumped in via a 'computer glitch'. No one went to jail, nor have their reputations been 'ruined'.

Now, if a innocent person was affected then the government NEEDS to rectify their error! The only point I was stating was that DHS did something worthwhile for once and still screwed it up. Take it easy my vitriolic chum.

OK, I won't call you obsequious, just dense! That's the excuse, get it? With all their fancy new technology, do you believe they couldn't go after and get every porno pervert they wanted and get the real criminals? Shit, even I could do that. It's as easy as catching a drug smuggler.

Good question. Since when does DHS involve itself in "copyright violations" too, for the greedy tycoons of RIAA and shutting down websites right and left? Maybe they have something to do with the demise of all those poor birds, for singing a tune without paying royalties. Notice what kind of people they are: one that can't really create anything original so they have to own everybody else's creations.
