Dont they see? Its for the good of the children!
Homeland Security shuts 84,000 websites by mistake in child porn crackdown - TECH.BLORGE.com
Shutting down websites which promote or disseminate child pornography is clearly a good thing. But not when 84,000 websites are dragged down with the 10 that are actually being targeted.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Justice (DOJ) yesterday announced it had seized the domains of 10 websites “engaged in the advertisement and distribution of child pornography.” The crackdown was part of Operation Protect Our Children.
However, the press release completely glosses over the fact that 84,000 other websites, innocent of any wrongdoing, were also affected by the crackdown. According to TorrentFreak, the huge error saw thousands of domain owners publicly accused of having links to online child pornography thanks to a banner that all the affected sites were redirected to.
It took two days for the error to be corrected, and a further three days for the banner to disappear completely from the sites. However, the ‘This domain name has been seized by ICE’ message is still showing up in search results.They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

Why is the Department of Homeland Security even involved in policing child pornography? Is al Qaida behind it?In judging a two-person singing contest, never award the prize to the second soprano having heard only the first.
