Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

Thom,

I really appreciate the work you do here and you dig up a lot of interesting stories. That being said, would you mind toning down your personal views and gripes in the article summaries? It seems to me that recently many of the stories you've posted include sarcasm and/or attacks against the readers here.

In the past I've come to OSnews for the professional and, comparatively neutral position. Of late I think there has been more of a slant and I'd really like to see the site focus on unbiased reporting.

So would you mind cutting out some of the comments about terrorism, Apple fanboys, unicorns, etc? I'm happy to read your personal thoughts on your blog, but I think OSnews would be better off reporting just the facts.

Thanks for your consideration.
