Well, I found some mirror sites for wikilinks.org. One of them looks just like the one I get when I type in wikilinks.org in my browser(Last months Afghan leaks but not this months diplomatic cable leaks). A second looks just like the site I got through a proxy server located in Europe.(Both recent sets of leaks.). A third mirror appears to be old news from 2009. Other mirrors have notices saying they are "undergoing scheduled maintenance." So maybe this is all a product of the fact that wikileaks has a complicated mirror server system. All I know is registrar/dns/hosting :) Perhaps the actual server that gets contacted when typing in wikilinks.org from where I am just hasn't been updated yet. I hope this is the case. I don't want the U.S. Govt. to turn into it's own worst enemy. Censorship is a symptom of incipient despotism.
I hope this post wasn't a wrong headed move resulting from my own unease and ignorance of serverside technology. But I feel it is important for people to be alert and check out suspicious looking situations. The U.S. is supposed to be a bastion of democracy and free speech. The entire world needs it to remain one.
It would still be of great service if someone knowledgable could check this odd looking situation out.
CAVEAT -I realize that Webmasterworld is a forum for learning and teaching for webmasters and designers. It is not an Internet watchdog. So I won't mind at all if a moderator feels that the entire subject of this thread is irrevelant, imprudent or in any way out of line, and deletes it before it gets started. Thank you all for being here, and providing this wonderful resource.
