**update**

julius baer changed its mind (or perhaps came to its senses along with the judge).

**original post**

i hadn’t visited the site since it first launched (just out of curiosity; my life isn’t so juicy that i would have anything to post) and was surprised (somewhat) to see a news brief on a hospital tv monitor that wikileaks, the wiki site that let users post confidential documents had been shutdown (don’t bother clicking over to wikileaks.org- it’s gone, gone, gone). in its covering article, frank151 made a good point about the real concern around this development (if you have a site hosted on dynadot, you might consider yanking it real quick as they seem to be in the same “stand up for your patrons” boat as best buy). while i do believe we need to be careful and responsible with what we put out in the public, i can’t help but get a creepy feeling that this decision is less about protecting “the people” and more about serving those that don’t aways have our best interests in mind; even if it wasn’t meant to be that way. ah! that ol’ road paved with “good” intentions… you know where that one leads, right?
