There is a difference between Communism and Corporatocracy.

This is definately some Egyptesq BS. Luckily our is run by our tech-illiterate grandparents so there isn't too much to fear as far as Internet takedowns.

communism... what, healthcare for all equals communism?

id honestly love for health care to be government run. because as it stands now, we are all waiting for the day out insurance agency decided to postpone a decision on weather out healthcare will be covered or not, with them delaying the decision for long enough that it doesn't matter, we are unsavable, instead of savable but costly.

The only mistake here is that people allowed it to become a police state without speaking up, remember this the next time the police at the airport laugh at the size of your thingie after a "non-intrusive scan" in the name of safty!

No, it'd start with Congress. Then we'd move on to the House and Senate before electing a new President.

I've been watching NeBun's comments for a few days now, and it's pretty obvious the person doesn't add anything to the discussion.

Hey NeBun, this is a tech site -- go troll some political site. No one likes your ignorant, right-wing drivel here.

The way to control an OUT of control government "police state", is to read the constitution. Know your rights, act on them. Make officials accountable for not enforcing and abiding by the Constitution. Elect constitutional minded officials to office. No matter what religion, color, or sex you are, the Constitution is there to protect your rights and individual freedoms.

[citation][nom]JohnnyLucky[/nom]Wonder why DHS & FBI are not admitting the mistake.[/citation]The last thing Big Brother is going to do is admit to any wrong doing. They are above reproach and prosecution.

Another example of government incompetence. Another example of the continued push destroy American style Freedom and implement the International Nanny State.

Since the 1960's the Liberals and Elites have slowly engineered America into becoming a 3rd world country. After all, you can not embrace political correctness and multiculturalism without first making America, the last bastion of Freedom and Individualism in the world, the same as every other 3rd rate country without first destroying the foundation of those Freedoms and the mechanism that allows the individual to succeed.

Prepare now for the class/cultural war to come!

Why are you such a racist?
Why do you hate poor people?
Why do you hate minority's?
Why do you incite violence?
Why do you lie?
You are obviously mentally challenged and need therapy.

Why does none of this have anything to do with your post?
Liberalism 101

You are such a hater! :)

This is just incompetence. But its a slippery slope. If we keep on slipping, fear not, we have options.

You cant remotely shutdown an AR-15. All mechanical solutions win!

Dear Toms: It’s discouraging to know that Tom’s decided to report the article, shape the idea of the article, and deliver the idea of the article to revolve around an injustice done to legitimate websites. Where is the sense of integrity in news anymore? Why is it that you have to direct your readers into thinking a specific way? Do you think your readers are stupid?

All who blogged: If you were a parent, you would see the wrong in the ways you have expressed anger in this news post. You fell into a discussion on politics, and at that, about the government not apologizing or transitioning to communism? Seriously, that's what you got from this article? The US took down child pornographic sites. Sure in the meanwhile, took down others by mistake. So what the mistake took down legitimate sites. So what some damage was done. The damage is not permanent. It will be temporary and easily repaired. In a few weeks/months no one will remember or even care whether the legitimate sites went down. Is the sacrifice of 1 website by mistake for a couple of days more relevant than taking down child pornographic sites? Is the sacrifice of 2 websites too many? Is the sacrifice of 100,000 too many? Come on people, where is your wisdom? Where are your morals? The protection of the children is more important than some website. What if the government didn’t care, and it was your child?

US Government (+1). Thank you for taking down the child pornography, and protecting our children, which is paramount. Job well done.

@ NezzyMighty
Ahh, sooo the good of the many out way the good of the few?
Many bad things have occurred in history by governments doing "what is best for the people"
By the way i have two kids.
One is in the army and the other is in high school.

"So what the mistake took down legitimate sites. So what some damage was done."
Keep telling yourself that and when it happens to you, just remember that it was for the greater good.

@NezzyMighty

I think the problem isn't that a innocent website was affected, but that someone's reputation could be damaged if a person saw the message left on it about why it is unavailable.

People should never support "The ends justify the means." mentality when it comes to the government. Too many opportunities for mis-use. Just like here.
