Rackspace Shuts Down Quran-Burning Church’s Sites

theodp writes “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,’ said Goodgame, who added he did not know how long it had hosted the church’s sites. Not quite the same thing, but would Kurt Westergaard’s cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad also violate Rackspace’s AUP? How about Christopher Hitchens’ Slate articles? Could articles from one-time Rackspace poster child The Onion pass muster?”
