FBI Doesn't Understand the Internet

As everyone knows by now, yesterday a crazy guy flew his Piper Cherokee into an IRS office building in Austin, Texas.

It is said that before doing so, crazy guy posted a "manifesto" on the Internet. The FBI asked that it be taken down. Why they would do that is a bit mysterious, since any relevant technical information is available from the host. We presume the reason has something to do with the notion that if left up it might incite another crazy person, or that people ought not to be rewarded with attention -- even posthumously -- as a consequence of doing unspeakable things.

If that's the case, then the Federal Bureau of Investigation simply doesn't understand the Internet.

Read the whole thing at The Smoking Gun.
