It reminds me of the site that featured a woman in stiletto heels stomping a small animal (such as a hamster) to death.
It's not about the lack of freedom that these sites are shut down, it's about intrinsic benefits to society and the lack of support... which, in both cases for this site, is zero. When the "hamster" site was shut down, do you think any of the cowards who used the site came out in support? Hell no. Did any of these people say, "This is a great thing for society; we need to fight for this kind of stuff on an ideological basis." No. Same thing for this site. That is what a "Freedom" story should be about.
Who are we to judge what 'value' something has to society? I think so-called 'gangsta rap' is utter trash and has no benefit to society, but I'll be the last person to ban it. This site, to me, is absoultely hillarious. I love animals. I also love twisted humor. (National Lampoon's "buy this magazine or we'll shoot this dog" cover comes to mind.) What is trash to you, is comedy gold to me. I can't fault you for not liking it yourself, I can only feel sorry that the site is off your humor radar (like how 'gansta rap' is off my musical radar).
The lesson here is, don't decide for everyone the fate of something based on your own personal prejudices. Such is the price of true freedom: putting up with things we don't agree with.
As for people "not coming out in support", then you must not have checked all the links I provided. Plenty of people have come out to support it, most notably Cruel Site of the Day where the site is now hosted. Quite a few people have put up mirrors, as well.
This is yet another MLP posting disguised as a legitimate story.
This wasn't intended to be a big news story. It was an "MLP" designed to just let people know. If you saw it under another subject, that was my fault as I didn't realize "MLP" was where it rightfully belonged. This is my first post to this particular site.
It's also disgusting; I'm sure the people who created the site were just joking around, but there are some really sick fucks out there who will put a kitten in a sealed jar and kill it.
Yes, and idiots set themselves on fire trying to emluate what they see on MTV. Kids jump off of roofs in Turkey trying to simulate something in a cartoon. Kids are killed trying to perform professional wrestling moves.
People are stupid.
Should we also ban cartoons, anything in the media that might raise an eyebrow, or is even marginally interesting perhaps? Maybe we should ban the news for telling us about these things and giving us ideas, eh?
Humor is quite often filled with outrageous things that are funny purely on the basis of it being so shocking. Check out some of George Carlin's shows. He jokes about people who smash other peoples heads in with hammers while wearing a Bugs Bunny costume. He recommends driving up behind headphone-clad joggers and pulling their sneaker off with your tire. Once he said we should have public executions on Pay-per-View where you line up a bunch of people on catapults and slam them into a brick wall. None of it real. None of it to be taken seriously.
Quite honestly, I'm getting pretty friggin' tired of taking the brunt of human stupidity because some nut job with no sense of right/wrong/reality/fantasy decides to mimic something. Let these bastards do themselves in -- it's natural selection.
