In response to a complaint, Rackspace has shut down the websites of the Dove World Outreach Center, a small 50-member church which has received national and international criticism for a planned book burning of the Quran on the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. The center 'violated the hate-speech provision of our acceptable-use policy,' explained Rackspace spokesman Dan Goodgame. 'This is not a constitutional issue. This is a contract issue,'

I don't agree with this, but as it's in the contract, they are free to do it I guess.

I am on the ignore list or something? That's EXACTLY what I meant.


My ETERNAL bad. I must have skimmed over your post without registering or something. I'm so sorry. Glad we're on the same page though :)

On that note, this just in:

Terry Jones has agreed to cancel Burn a Qur'an Day.

Bleak. I was kinda looking foward to all the traumatic excitement it was going to cause. Now I'll have to find something else to do with my Saturday online.

On a serious note: good. And what a dumbass.

Maybe not so dumb at all. He got fantastic milage out of it.

The interesting thing about this is that the pastor concerned, Terry Jones, said that this is what god wanted him and his congregation to do. So backing down now is going to be a bit tricky because it will bring into question whether Terry Jones really does chat with god regularly.
Also, it would show that god has a problem making decisions; he can't very well change his mind now if he's commanded a bunch of loony evangelists to burn copies of the koran. If they don't do it, they'll be disobeying god.

If they do back down (which I doubt), I'm very interested to see what the reason will be.

mdg

so god backed down too?
