Hello all,

I hope this does not offend anyone as this is not my intent at all.
But I did some research and found the site that the fellow posted the letter right before he ran his plane into the IRS building. I was surprised to find a notice that the site has been taken offline for being over bandwidth and for being sensitive in nature.
Looks to me like the host would have made sure that they stayed up and online for the public to find out what was going on. Just my thought so what say you?

To keep it online could have very easily cost the provider a lot of money that wouldn't be reimbursed. Without being on the "inside" of the issue there's no way of knowing if the government said to take it down or if the host simply decided to do so.

Have you ever had anything well not so dramatic obviously but have you had any severe incidents that might have crossed paths with government officials with someone you were hosting?

You hit it on the nail head Mike, look what I found at that hosting company site:

Due to the FBI request AND the high bandwidth/load usage, we wouldn't be able to put the entire site back up. We did the next best thing though and are linking to the archived version at the smoking gun. You can see the original letter in it's entirety through the link we provided.

I still can't help but wonder what it was that the FBI wanted them to censor.

Who knows :) I definitely don't.
