A Popular Website Shut Down for Terrorism Reason

A Popular Website Shut Down for Terrorism Reason

A couple days ago the rumors surfaced that a popular website Blogetery.com has been shut down thanks to an anti-piracy campaign held by ICE. However, the site’s web host Burst.net announced later that it was done within the frames of FBI investigation related to terrorist activities.

Blogetery.com used to host more than 73,000 blogs before an FBI investigation has resulted in the immediate shutdown of the website. After the accusations had been confirmed, the web host pulled the plug on the website.

When the users found the site blocked, the panic arose. The rumors were that the site was closed down because of the anti-piracy crackdown committed by ICE on the RIAA’s request. The rumors dissolved only after ICE, the RIAA and the FBI altogether announced another reason of shutdown – terrorism activity found on the site, including allegations of Al-Qaeda posting a hit list along with instructions on how to create bombs.

Burst.net, the biggest web hosting provider in the Northeast Pennsylvania, has officially released the explanation of what has happened with the blogging service. On July 9, the hosting provider received a warning from law enforcement officials who asked it to reveal data on the ownership of the Blogetery.com blogging service. The reason was that the officials have found a post linking to content of terrorist kind, like bomb-making instructions and a hit list of terrorist group, on the website. After studying the matter, Burst.net drew a conclusion that the posted content not only potentially incited dangerous activities, but also specifically infringed the web host’s “Acceptable Use Policy”, which strictly prohibits posting the material of such kind. Based on this conclusion, the law enforcement officials’ request and the fact that the blogging service has already had a record of abuse previously, Burst.net decided to immediately disable the website’s system.

It’s not a surprise that authorities worked so quickly – Burst.net is a web host based in US. However, it’s not clear yet if even an announcement directly from the hosting provider would be able to dissolve the rumors about anti-piracy crackdowns and censorship sweeps. It’s easy to understand – it would be much easier to push a headlines related to violating free speech rights. Well, at least the real facts and reason have been published.

smackd avatarWell Well, I never would of thought about it. You can be sure that I would be right at the front of the line when it comes to anykind of Censorship. But I would not for even a second, think twice of sutting down anykind of site that was helping Terrorism in anyway. So that being said, how are we going to stop it. I mean I can understand someone posting how to make a Bomb 101. That is the easy one to deal with. You remove the post and begin to ban people. But some of these people are in no way stupid and we all need to remember that. But how do we deal with the ones that are posting in somekind of code and are able to fly under the radar. How does this site or anysite for that matter weed them out. The last thing we need is people running around and pointing fingers, it would lead to nothing more than a witch hunt. The only ones to hung out would be the ones that had nothing to hide. As I said they are not stupid in anyway, and any idea that we could come up with so can they. So I put it out there for all members to respond to. How do we prevent our past time from being the next victim? I look forward to hearing any and all ideas, there is no stupid ideas in the right hands. Your Faithful Member smackd
