Oh my god, reading that made me envision SOPA passing.

Where a company, like MySpace, deems that one page on a large well respected website, like seclists.org, aggravates them -- they can just dns block it and it is no longer accessible.


It cuts both ways. What if someone with nothing to lose found some way to take out sony.com or whatever? I hope that will never be possible, and I bet anyone trying that would end up in jail, but you never know.
