hmmm

On another blog is possible in the comment section on the latest story he said that he simply forgot to renew the domain name, and that it will be back online in a couple of days. Though this does make me think, what if infoshop was shut down for "spreading terrorist propaganda", how would US radicals respond? This is a major news source (over 200,000 unique views per month) would people shrug their shoulders, or would they actively organize against blatant repression? After all in China if you type in democracy or falun gong on a google search engine literally nothing comes up. Just wondering.
