EasyDNS Falsely Accused of Unplugging WikiLeaks

kdawson writes “EasyDNS, a DNS and hosting provider, was mistakenly identified in press accounts as the entity that knocked wikileaks.org off the Net. It wasn’t them, it was EveryDNS, a completely separate outfit. EasyDNS suffered a series of online reprisals as the false attribution spread. When WikiLeaks approached them to add to the robustness of their DNS support, EasyDNS said yes.” And just to be fair on the disclosure thing- I’ve been using EasyDNS for many many many years and have always had great service, so I just thought it was cool that they stand up for the cause.
