Journal Pope Slackman's Journal: Goatse.cx sued under DMCA

from the stare-into-the-abyss dept.
MEEPT! wrote in to report that the famous troll site goatse.cx has been shut
down under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act by a gay linux industry trade group called the
Alternative Network OS and Gay Anus Penetration Enthusiasts. Michael S, an ANOSGAPE spokesman,
was quoted as saying "goatse.cx has made a mockery of the anal fisting industry, and left themselves spread
wide open to litigaytion. We hope this anal action will send a clear message to this "trolling" community
that wide-open man-holes are not a laughing matter." The goatse.cx webmasters were optimistic, however,
stating that the graven image, now sacred to trolls and crapflooders everywhere, was found in the
pubic domain and was in no way infringing on any GAPE copyright.
Similar sites such as Comp-u-geek and "Hey everybody, I'm looking at gay porno!" were unaffected.
