Verio to shut off controversial Web site

Nancy Gohring of IDG News Service view MacWorld - Cryptome loses their web service provider tomorrow. Cryptome's copy of the shutdown letter. Slashdot discussion. John Young (cryptome's proprieter) posted on Slashdot that the reason for the shutdown is likely his coverage of the Coast Guard Deepwater program debacle.

From this Slashdot comment by John Young:

Cryptome and its affiliated sites will continue with another ISP, in the US or elsewhere. Or if necessary, underground, or via means not easily shuttered, or by way of whatever is invented for opposing technologies of information control (credit to Steven Wright, author of The Technologies of Political Control: []).

Cryptome has moved. From :

Cryptome is now on a new ISP, Network Solutions, another US giant like Verio, closely linked to the authorities. We'll see if it can take the heat or cave. We intend to test all the giants if necessary to see what is up with them and the censors: if one buckles we'll sign up with another. And air the results. Meanwhile the archives are being distributed worldwide by other means.
