WikiLeaks uncensored.

Thanks in no small part to the efforts of The EFF and others, the honorable District Judge Jeffrey S. White has withdrew an earlier order blocking the wikileaks.org domain name resolution.

“There are serious concerns that the court has, and serious questions raised, about the effectiveness of any order that this court might issue given the current state of affairs,” Judge White said, lamenting the fact that constitutional law might not be able to keep up with technological change.

Yeah, censorship is hard. I feel for you. I mean, how are we supposed to hide tax evasion now.

I would worry about more than tax evasion my friend. There are things that are much worse than that.

Now don't get me wrong. I don't like seeing multi-billion dollar corporations getting out of paying taxes, but I also understand why individuals don't like paying said tax in the first place. They get milked for all they're worth, yet other companies who won't be hurting one bit cry bloody murder about taxes.

I was also nice enough to provide a sub-domain through my hosting provider that redirects to their website directly. I'll keep it up in the event that the domain name question gets yanked again:

Somehow, I don't think this particular technologically inept method will be used "the next time".

But I'm sure they appreciate the help.
