Submission + - Judge in internet case: "What's a 'web site'?&

mcgrew writes: "A British judge in the trial of three men in a terrorism case where the internet was central to the case admitted he didn't know what a "web site" was. The Reuters article says that "Violent Islamist material posted on the Internet, including beheadings of Western hostages, is central to the case."

"The trouble is I don't understand the language. I don't really understand what a Web site is," the judge said.

From TFA: "Concluding Wednesday's session and looking ahead to testimony on Thursday by a computer expert, the judge told Ellison: 'Will you ask him to keep it simple, we've got to start from basics'.""
