being monitored by the authorities on copyright grounds

Let's not get carried away before we know more. If it's a copyright issue, I don't have a problem. People have the right to profit from their intellectual or artistic property. The State doesn't own it ... yet!

Yes, it’s all copyright or racist materials.
We can trust them.
They wouldn’t lie.

No need for any due process at all.
Nope. None whatsoever.

Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Obama!

Stupid crackers had it coming.

This is still an alarming story, especially given that 73,000 blogs were unplugged all at once. Do we really believe that "the authorities" scanned every one of these blogs for copyright infringement? I don't believe that government is that efficient.

For the moment, I'm thinking that this is a trial run, or a bungle of monstrous proportions.

Free Republic could disappear for the same reason. We need a P2P version of Free Republic with encryption and anonymous relay servers.
