Journal TheVelvetFlamebait's Journal: The Pirate Bay Censored My Blog! 1

That's right, TPB censored my blog:

http://imustbeamafiaashill.baywords.com/2008/04/19/yay-free-speech/

It bashed the pirate bay for their abuse of the legal system, for their hypocritical money-grubbing from ad revenue, while they helped people break their local copyright laws, and their distortion of the copyright problem. I admit it was also a test of their much touted commitment to free speech, but I never really thought they would take it down, and so quickly! It came down overnight!

Boycott baywords and the pirate bay. The MAFIAA is more committed to free speech than them these days.

EDIT:

Whoops! It looks like it's back up! My bad! Still, it was a little suspicious that it came down, but the site itself didn't, and even when I entered in a phony blog name, it asked me whether I wanted to create one.
