U.S. Authorities Shut Down WordPress Host With 73,000 Blogs

They're just trying to confuse us and muddy the waters with all this crap, included.


* 200,000 of Rapidshare / MegaUpload links to files were up on the site, the file content is unknown
* 50,000 - 100,000 of politically charged and critical articles were up there as well, all authored and commented on by bloggers
* In about 5 minutes the worst offenders were certain users that could have been taken down individually[1]
* No trace of the "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom" article remains, search for "inspire" and you get lots of inspirational content
* According to Alexa and Google trends they were gaining traffic steady since 2008 and were in the top 8,000 websites for visits
* Not too many torrent links, less than 1000


I haven't heard the admission of failure to comply with take down notices for constantly infringing sites and if they didn't BurstNet wasn't hosting anything on their servers.

Simply they're seeing what they can get away with and warming people up to CYBERCOM and ACTA and threatening sites like isohunt, mininova (RIP) and TPB.
There are no others, there is only us.
