uncadonna writes “According to activist group The Yes Men, the government of Canada has shut down two parody websites criticizing Canada’s poor environmental policy. The article goes on to claim that’”In response to Environment Canada’s request, Serverloft immediately turned off a whole block of IP addresses, knocking out more than 4500 websites that had nothing to do with the parody sites or the activists who created them.
