Seems the blogging host that was shut down was host to (alleged) Al Queda sites. I understand the (alleged) reasons for shutting the individual blogs down, but to take the whole server down for this? And confiscate the server with no recourse?
All those blogs, gone forever. For no real reason. It would (should) be technically feasible to dump all the data, or make a backup of the other blogs. Alternatively, to simply shut down access to the (alleged) blogs in question.
Methinks that there is something else involved in this.
And dollars to doughnuts the people using the (alleged) blogs for nefarious purposes will simply set up another account and be back in business in no time.
Is the DHS that technically inept? Or is there more to this? Or do they simply not care?
