Re: "Obama Truth Team" Orders GoDaddy To Shut Down Web

said by Krisnatharok:

Note: I haven't visited the site so I am going off the story you posted and the story in the OP.

The story in the OP is ridiculous and from a ridiculous source, but that's all it took you to launch a political rant.

Come on. I know an election's coming up and all, but you're smarter than that.

Douglas Haggman

quote:
Al Qaeda terrorist training camps in Georgia? Jihad crazed Muslims preparing to shoot up your local shopping mall? Why the government is hiding the obvious al Qaeda connections of the guy who robbed three gas stations in Oklahoma? All this and more is available from the often comical Northeast Intelligence Network created by Douglas J. Hagmann - or someone using that name. In this report we will listen to Hagmann as he broadcasts a terror alert that he knows is false, and get a brief glimpse of who the U.S. intelligence community believes were the real planners behind 9/11. You can have three guesses but none of them should be foreign.

Yeah, I know Canucks are crazy like that. I posted some thoughts after I got a chance to look over the site from a safer connection. I apologize if this is over-generalizing or offends you:

said by Krisnatharok:

Having also glanced over the website, which looks like your typical angry libertarian conspiracy theory parking place, I would guess that the graphic abortion pictures (which I hadn't viewed firsthand) may have precipitated the takedown notice.

The unfortunate part is that GoDaddy has already been an internet pincushion and rightly accused of being in bed with Washington through the whole SOPA scandal, so the charge is convenient and easily sticks.

It would have helped if GoDaddy had emphasized the objectionable material and downplayed the First Amendment concerns.

I was surprised. You usually don't jump so quickly off the deep end.

This Haggman guy seems to make a pretty good living being a nut. Nice self-promotion on his part with the GoDaddy "truth squad" crap. There are plenty of idiots who'll believe it.

He's a birther by the way, although there's not as much money in that as there used to be.

While I stick this in the BS category myself, more or less. Don't forget that this is the same current running government that went out of it's way to break due process and seize domains and literately shut down hundreds of websites with no legal recourse. Not to mention broke damn near every seizure law on the books that NZ and about half of the ones that you guys have in the US with regards to Megaupload.

I think that Haggman guy might be distant relations to that J.R. fellow from Dallas. They all secretly wanted to get into politics at a young age and could be seen hanging out in their backyard listening to the grass grow, planning how they were going to make their first million so the rest of idiots could live in security off the guberment "chicken in every pot" programs through more taxes.

Go Daddy says request to move Homelandsecurityus.com not about politics:

Company says campaign committee and politics not at play in request to change web hosts.

Last Friday GoDaddy.com sent a notice to the owner of Homelandsecurityus.com informing him that he needed to find a new home for his domain name and web site.

Douglas J. Hagmann, founder of the site, tells his story here. He claims that one of the Obama campaign’s “truth teams” asked Go Daddy to give the site the boot.

Ben Butler, Network Abuse Director at Go Daddy, told Domain Name Wire today that its request to move the site had nothing to do with politics. Here’s the full statement from Butler:

"We did receive complaints about objectionable content on Homelandsecurityus.com, but it was not from a government agency or campaign committee, nor was it political in nature.

As you may already know, we investigate all serious complaints about content reported to violate our terms of service. In this case, we substantiated the complaints and found several examples of content that appeared to violate our Terms of Service.

We don’t speak to specifics due to customer privacy concerns. We can tell you our terms of service prohibit content or activities designed to defame, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, slander or harass third-parties. We also don’t allow content to encourage unlawful activities by others, such as hate crimes, terrorism and child pornography. Our terms also prohibit activities that are tortious, vulgar, obscene, invasion of the privacy of a third-party, racially or ethically.

For a complete look at our terms of service, you can visit [here].

It would not be a violation of our terms to disagree with a person or organization’s politics.”
Whois records show that Hagmann moved his site to Network Solutions and is hosting it with JustHost.com.

Well I am thorughly disappointed.

Although this does deal with shotty web hosting it has nothing to do with scantly or naked women, breasts or security.

I'm just going to go back to looking at android news.

they are contradicting themselves right here. "We can tell you our terms of service prohibit content or activities designed to defame, embarrass, harm, threaten". when they say " "It would not be a violation of our terms to disagree with a person or organization’s politics" now if a politician is doing something wrong or illegal, you can't expose it, or threaten to have them prosecuted if they don't stop?. the person/politician already has defamed, embarassed, harmed themselves, you can't bring that to light?.

All disagreement is not defamation, in fact most isn't.

GoDaddy has a policy which allows people to exercise their freedom of speech within Constitutional bounds.

The Constitution does not protect ALL speech, you can't shout "fire" in a crowded building, you can't defame or slander someone, you can't threaten someone.

GoDaddy is protecting themselves from liability by removing this website (thank the Republicans for laws like the DMCA, SOPA, etc which force hosting companies to remove first and ask questions later). I am sure this guy will have no problem finding a hosting company elsewhere in the world to accept his money. GoDaddy just doesn't want the legal trouble.

Not necessarily..if you hear a "snap, crackle and pop".... check for fireflies in your area with short circuits. They are the first ones to give warning of approaching aliens. Then it's too late for decoding..best thing to do is throw out hands full of mothballs in a ten foot perimeter around you and your loved ones..if you check back later StuartMW will show you how to get their tiny little legs apart.

Well as we learned from "Independence Day", you can just plug in any standard Apple iBook into an Alien mothership's computer. Comes with all the right cabling and everything.

Heck nowadays, probably don't even need to hijack an old alien fighter craft and get inside. Can just get a high gain antennae and sign onto their WiFi. Bet they use an Alien SSID equivalent of Linksys with no encryption.
