FWIW, Landsat and Terra AM are operated by civilian agencies (NASA/NOAA/USGS), not by the military.

My favorite thing to do is dress up in a gorilla costume, sit in a trash can at the end of the driveway, and jump out at unsuspecting trick-or-treaters.
I'm an Air Force missileer. 2-3 days out of the week, I'm 80 feet underground behind an 8-ton blast door guarded by guys with guns, with 12 cases of MREs.

PenFed is not affiliated with the Pentagon, except that the majority of their members are Pentagon employees.
Just publishing documents and files is one thing.
Editing them into questionably accurate videos with misleading titles while their founder flexes his e-peen about how he's "busy ending two wars" is another.

But I guess being deliberately irresponsible just to annoy the MPAA/RIAA is okay by Slashdot.
Seriously, the last thing the Internet needs is another abuse haven ISP.

It's not technically a violation if they asked nicely and the host complied voluntarily.
