Ah, I wouldn't worry about ATS being shut down for its weirdness or anymore blogs and their terrors of truth. What's wrong with sharing the `trade secret` of the fire gods? Surely, these monkeys would know by now that there are more powerful tools of the trade compared to mere bomb making instructions.
Burst.net gave PC World the following statement:
On the evening of July 9, 2010, BurstNET received a notice of a critical nature from law enforcement officials, and was asked to provide information regarding ownership of the server hosting Blogetery.com. It was revealed that a link to terrorist material, including bomb-making instructions and an al-Qaeda 'hit list', had been posted to the site. Upon review, BurstNET determined that the posted material, in addition to potentially inciting dangerous activities, specifically violated the BurstNET Acceptable Use Policy. This policy strictly prohibits the posting of 'terrorist propaganda, racist material, or bomb/weapon instructions'. Due to this violation and the fact that the site had a history of previous abuse, BurstNET elected to immediately disable the system.

Wow, I can't believe there aren't more responses to this thread.
Don't you think ATS would be there next likely target?
I don't get how they could have shut down all blogs. How difficult could it have been to shut down the problem pages.

The BBC report that American citizens were named and targeted for assassination by al-Qaeda as well as messages from Osama bin Laden and other leaders of the terrorist organisation.
Going back to bomb making instructions, well you are only a Google search away from such information. Anyone remember the Jolly Rogers Cookbook?
