10.000 registered Blogs within 3 days on BayWords

The site should be somewhat stable now. We’ve updated a lot of stuff and tweaked the database to cope with the load. We’ve also took in the idea of opening a forum that someone asked for. You can find it at SuprBay.org, BayWords admin declares.

:: Controlled Chaos

BayWords is an interesting experiment. Will the blogs here be different from what’s out there already? Or are people already blogging freely eslewhere? What parts of the world will this appeal to? Are governments already watching BayWords? Am I on an enemies list now?

: BayWords | Freedom of Speech

Filed under: shortlist — Tags: , , — xshortlist @ 6:56 am

The seemingly unsinkable torrent search The Pirate Bay has launched BayWords blogging service that aims to provide users with censorship-free blog hosting at no cost. ‘Because of the need of freedom of speech and secure hosting facility of the words being said we could not agree to how people behave towards bloggers. Many blogs are being shut down for uncomfortable thoughts and ideas. We will not do that. Our goal is to protect freedom of speech and your thoughts. As long as you don’t break any Swedish laws in your blog, we will defend it’, BayWords declares.

They are using WordPress as the blogging engine for this new service. Fill out the one-step form and you’ll be blogging seconds later!

Matt Mullenweg from WordPress talked about this new service: “WordPress.com supports free speech and doesn’t shut people down for “uncomfortable thoughts and ideas”, in fact we’re blocked in several countries because of that. However as a US-based company we must comply with US laws, which means if the primary purpose of a blog is distributing illegal material it’s not a good fit for WordPress.com.” | via TechWhack |

AHOY BayWords, after BayImg we will see you soon on BayWatch!

Die Piraten des scheinbar unsinkbaren Torrent-Trackers The Pirate Bay haben den zensurfreien Blog-Service BayWords gestartet. Bei zunehmenden Zensurbestrebungen will TPB mit der Plattform BayWords die freie Meinungsäußerung in Blogs sichern, um ungehindert auch unbequeme Statements veröffentlichen zu können – zumindest, solange sie sich im Rahmen der schwedischen Gesetze bewegen, versichert Admin brokep.

Für Baywords hat man zwar Spacedump als schwedischen Hoster gewählt statt dem TPB-Hoster PRQ, doch das kostenlose Blog-Netzwerk nutzt das populäre Weblog-System WordPress, deren amerikanischer Betreiber sich an US-Gesetze halten muß. Der BayWords-Service ist kostenlos, die Grundeinstellungen konfigurieren und unter einer Adresse xxxxx.baywords.com starten.

Blog-Zensur ist nicht nur in autoritären Staaten wie China oder Burma ein Thema. In Großbritannien wurde im März 2008 das regierungskritische Blog Civil Serf einer britischen Ministerialbeamtin vom Netz genommen und danach verkündet, dass es Blogging-Richtlinien für Staatsangestellte geben werde. In den USA kam es im vergangenen Jahr zu Blog-Löschungen von Diskussionsgruppen zum Thema Sex auf LiveJournal.

|| Q: Why dont you Pirate Bay guys ever finish a project before starting a new one?
|| A: We do whatever we want, whenever we want. If it doesnt suit you, you can start your own empire.

Auf die Klage von US-Medienkonzernen antwortet TPB:

‘It has come to our attention that Warner Bros has employed the police officer in charge of the whole investigation about The Pirate Bay.’
Time to investigate the investigators.

WARNING: Deleting a blog also deletes all of its associated data
Vor dem Blog-Deleting kommt das Blog-Bashing. ‘Das Jahr 2007 dürfte als Hoch-Zeit der konsequenten Denunzierung von Bloggern und deren Machenschaften von seiten der Printmedien in die Annalen einer Geschichte des Unnötigen eingehen’, wird es in bei in|ad|ae|qu|at zielsicher auf den Punkt formuliert.
