* GLP Shutdown a couple of weeks back *
I'm just wondering if Trinity had advanced warning of crackdowns on Forums and this was partly related to the shutdown a couple of weeks back.

I do remember that the primary reason was HR 6616 being passed, but it does seem weird to me that out of all the hoaxes we see on GLP and other related sites, that the DHS and FBI decided to get involved publicly with this one.

Then, of course, there was this article a couple of days ago [link to news.com.com] which I believe followed the Chertoff announcement a couple of days before that.

They are trying to eliminate free speech and these forums aren't they.

I'm interested in Trinity's opinion in all of this.

Trinity - Thanks for the response.

Yes, it's tough when your mindset is to stand up and fight for what you want, but too many people are asleep and I guess the best course right now would be just to stay out of the way until the fight for our rights is more fair.

Unfortunately, now it's not. But let me also say, that if someone posts a hoax like that in a public place, I do also think it's akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater. It's a fine line and I guess this medium requires you to just take everything with a grain of salt and do your own research. book
