Government Muzzles DNC Reporter, Shuts Down Yahoo! E-Mail List
25 Jul 2004
The government has been harassing reporters covering the weak security at the DNC.
In an attempt to muzzle me about the massive security problems I found at the DNC convention site, the government has pressured Yahoo to shutdown my TSCM-L security mailing list, and has had them delete my archive of thousands of messages which is read daily by over 1000 subscribers.

The List has been on Yahoo for six years, is over ten years old, and there was no warning of any sort given before they did this.

Subscribers to the list are not being allowed to post, and as the list moderator I have been locked out from approving messages, posting messages, or communicating in any way with the list membership.

The list mission and charter can be found at:

Curiously, the list or group itself still exists, it's just that I, the moderators, and the other list members have been muzzled.

I have repeatedly contacted Yahoo on this matter, and have not yet obtained a response in any form from them.

It looks like the government is trying to muzzle me...

Welcome to John Ashcroft's and Tom Ridge's vision of America.
