Then Unity at Ministry of Truth has a good technical explanation. Modernity on the other hand is tracking the campaign side of things and explaining what is going on.

Obviously, I’m also concerned that its so easy for people to pull domain names. But don’t some website hosting companies provide a ‘lock’ service that makes it difficult for these kind of scams to be perpetrated? Hmmm… scary indeed.

    You’d think people would have learned by now that trying to suppress sites because they don’t like what they say merely spreads the news of their actions more widely.

    Hello Sunny,

    Not quite, in that the domain wasn’t pulled exactly. The company that holds the registration deleted the name servers which point the domain to where it is actually hosted. The site continued to exist, but the internet didn’t know how to get to it because of the deletion of two small bits of code.

    HP has now got its domain registered by another company, I think, and the problem is solved.

    Credit where credit’s due, Sunny. Is this the begining of a dim realization of which side you should be fighting? Let’s hope so.
