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.

I can only say that I absolutely concur. Hard work appreciated, and of course there must be a place for Thom's opinion, too. But sometimes the comments aren't even related to the article (like the "to annoy unicorn haters" side blow just recently).
