Shutting down the web

I saw most of the pilot episode of a new series last night on AMC.  The promo had this tagline:  “Not every conspiracy is a theory.”
That’s pretty good.  Right up there with, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not all out to get you.”

Last night, Swampie asked if there were any back up plans in the event we were censored by the Gub’mint.  I hadn’t really thought much about it, even though I had read about the Feds shutting down some 73,000 WP blogs. Then, I find out later that were shut down by the FBI, who said they were being “used by al-Qaeda operatives to distribute recruiting materials and to offer bomb-making tips.” Dang.

Sounds like a good reason to shut down the bad guys to me. But, all 73,000? The words ‘heavy handed’ come to mind. Hopefully the bloggers not involved will get their digs back soon. But, I guess that’s why I wasn’t too concerned about this kind of scenario. Being hosted on wordpress.com gives a sense of security and safety from malicious attacks, and, it would be hard to imagine the Feds shutting down all the hundreds of thousands of WP.com blogs just because of some bad actors.

And then I read this story, and I changed my mind.

This is it, folks. This is the end of the internet as we know it (TEOTIAWKI).

Seriously.

Hard to believe there isn’t a conspiracy here someplace.

Hate to leave you on a sad note, so here’s a riddle that might put a smile on your face …

Where do you find a good lawyer? … In the nearest cemetery.
