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.

Come on, Thom, the site is OSnews, not OSflamebait.

It has ALWAYS been OSflamebait. And that's actually one of the reasons I frequent the site so often.

I haven't been here long, but it does seem like it's gotten worse over time, to the point that the quality of news is adversely effected. My biggest problems are that Thom mixes factual reporting (well, quotation of other sources. ;) with his own opinions, and his opinions aren't always (in my own judgement, are seldom) well-informed.

Which wouldn't be as big a problem if it was just in the comment sections, but it frequently gets into the article write-ups.

Edit: Thom, here's a suggestion. Don't editorialize in the articles themselves, just post in response to the articles with whatever your personal opinion is. Or, for that matter, maybe you could create an OSNews opinion page, or something like that?
