Anyhow, if you can't be bothered to follow the trail, it appears that Tim Ireland's blog has been taken down by its hosting service because he was somewhat critical of Alisher Usmanov, the billionaire who is currently trying to buy Arsenal. (The Arsenal defence seems to be quite successfully keeping him out. For now.)
Usmanov wasn't pleased, and got his lawyers to get the hosting company to close down Ireland's blog, and all the sites he was hosting. The thing is, this just seems wrong. I'm not a lawyer, and I haven't read the original post, but it seems like unpleasant bullying tactics.
So I thought I'd help spread the word.
