  • something about u.s. court shuts down whistleblower site makes me uneasy

    Maybe there is a simple explanation---a user was doing sloppy inappropriate pasting of articles, or something.




    U.S. Court Shuts Down Whistleblower Site
    By Paul Kiel - February 18, 2008, 1:54PM
    From the BBC:
    Wikileaks.org, as it is known, was cut off from the internet following a California court ruling, the site says. The case was brought by a Swiss bank after "several hundred" documents were posted about its offshore activities. Other versions of the pages, hosted in countries such as Belgium and India, can still be accessed.
    However, the main site was taken offline after the court ordered that Dynadot, which controls the site's domain name, should remove all traces of wikileak from its servers.
    Wikileaks has been the source for a number of revelatory documents, including the U.S. military's manual for Gitmo and the rules of engagement for U.S. troops in Iraq.
    But see it for yourself, wikileaks.org is indeed out of commission. The Belgian wikileaks, however, is still up.

    Capitalize letters, eliminate unnecssary function words, and in all cases try to make the title as short and punchy as possible.

    Write everything in lower case. Write complete sentences. Use "I" and "me" a lot.

          How big was the turtle? I saw a hummingbird the other day.

            I like mostly lower case; it's a little more stream lined looking. it's habit for me to capitalize I when I am typing stuff out.

              It was pretty big. It was back when I lived in Florida. I stopped and helped it cross the road.

                Also, when I was growing up (yet again in Florida), we saw an alligator crossing the road. We didn't stop to help it.

                          jokes aside - the court is stupid. they have already spread out the documents elsewhere and the whistle blowers will continue to use the net as an source.

                            So, bad thread titles will just cause the author to be ridiculed, but pissing off a swiss bank is a definite faux pas, worthy of action by a federal judge.
