Just had an interesting though while reading about the server outage this morning. If a major terrorist incident happened would the government shut
down certain web sites to control the flow of information? They can control phone lines as well as the televised media so what about subversive
internet sites (ATS could definately be seen as one)? What do you think? Am I being paranoid again?
I don't think they would go through the trouble to shut down just one site, if there was such an incident that required a throttle of the internet,
it would just be a call to all ISPs to halt service untill further notice. As we have all seen when a site drops that has good information a
subsitute or mirror tends to show up rather fast, granted it would be impossible to have a real backup of ATS at the ready, I'm sure enough members
frequent other sites and talk over IM that other avenues of information exchange would develop rather quickly.

What do people think about a contigency (I think thats the word) plan if martial law shuts down the Internet? Like meet up at a specified place 4
days after the shutdown?
Not a bad idea for a bunch of parinoid rebels such as us. But I propose we should have several meet sights around the world. So that everyone is
close enough to a site that they can walk to them when the EMPs fry our cars out. = )
