    I just read that; quite interesting.

    I wonder if the small business owners could sue the ICE department for defamation-of-character/slander or such?

    I know if i was a small business owner and my customers went to my website and it had a big sign saying i was involved in child porn or such I wouldnt be too happy!

    It wouldnt matter how much you told them otherwise, im sure their business' will suffer because of it.

    They could sue and if any out of country business was caught into that mess they could put a claim in the government messed up bigtime this time around hopefully they get sued by every domain owner that was involved. THEY HAVE IT COMING.

    how did this 2 year old thread get revived? i originally thought this happened today, tho it sounded familiar. ugh.

    makes me think, would be a fun little experiment to see how many of us could get a 2 year old article viral online tho.
