U.S. Government Shuts Down 84,000 Websites, ‘By Mistake’

The US Government has yet again shuttered several domain names this week. The Department of Justice and Homeland Security’s ICE office proudly announced that they had seized domains related to counterfeit goods and child pornography. What they failed to mention, however, is that one of the targeted domains belongs to a free DNS provider, and that 84,000 websites were wrongfully accused of links to child pornography crimes.

If it saves one child, I guess it's worth it.  Right?  I mean who needs another 84,000 web sites on the internet.  Better safe than sorry.  (Just kidding :-)

I can't wait until the Feds take over health care and start pulling the plug when it really counts.
