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.

Heh, brown nosing? Who is reaching now? If you look back on my past posts, you'll see that if anything Thom and I butt heads quite often. And besides, not only would I not brown nose (it's against my nature) but I don't work for OSNews nor do I wish to, and I've declined an offer to write for them recently so what would even be the point?

But none of that matters anyway. If you take such issue with Thom's writing style, why address it to me, a third party with no direct involvement apart from calling you out for a flameworthy post? If you truly did care about the editor's quality of writing you'd address him directly and not here, else you'd go to or another mainstream news site for your "serious news". No, I suspect I know your continued motive, and given your moderated status I'm inclined to believe others see it too.

Oh, and then there's this gem:

Are you really this ridiculously hysterical about everything, or are you just an insufferable demagogue?

Interesting; it's a tired old trolling method to get under a person's skin by insulting them twice in one sentence, with irrelevant pseudo-observations no less.

Nice try though! If this were I'd give you a 4/10 for effort.
