Blogetry Goes Dark
Blogging service, Blogetry, has been completely taken offline - by the FBI. Some 70,000 users were given no notice other than a failed connection as they attempted to log in to their blogs this week. All of this seems to be stemming from a mandated shut down involving Blogetry’s hosting provider, BurstNET. After having been approached by the FBI with claims that Blogetry sites contained al-Quaida communications, BurstNET felt compelled to shut down the entire Blogetry network.
And thus is the way of the modern age - security will trump free exchange of information and a few “bad” apples will definitely spoil the bunch.
