Re: "Obama Truth Team" Orders GoDaddy To Shut Down Web
said by Frodo:Sorry bro: said by Krisnatharok:
Staying out of politics, Fast and Furious is embarrassing for the government, so therefore any site devoted to covering the scandal would violate GoDaddy's ToS?
As Perry Mason might say, you are assuming facts not in evidence. I gave the site in question the once over, and there is a variety of material on a variety of issues as well as video. So, who's to say that the issue is Fast and Furious? I didn't watch any video, but maybe there is something there on some of the videos?

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

A political website that contained stinging criticism of the Obama administration and its handling of the Fast and Furious scandal was ordered to be shut down by the Obama campaigns Truth Team, according to private investigator Douglas Hagmann, who was told by ISP GoDaddy his site contained information that was maliciously harmful to individuals in the government.
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.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
