Wikileaks Shut Down!

February 18, 2008

Whistle-blower site taken offline

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 wikileaks from its servers.

The court also ordered that Dynadot should “prevent the domain name from resolving to the wikileaks.org website or any other website or server other than a blank park page, until further order of this Court.”

Other orders included that the domain name be locked “to prevent transfer of the domain name to a different domain registrar” to prevent changes being made to the site.

Wikileaks claimed that the order was “unconstitutional” and said that the site had been “forcibly censored”.

Because if everyone knew what was really going on, there’d be mobs of people.

Mobs of people hanging from streetlamps!

Over at Gear Diary, someone’s in an uproar over the Knight Rider remake.

Bah.

I once sat in the Batmobile. The real Batmobile.

But even better is this:


Supercar. An immortal design by Reg Hill. I still want it. For real.
