Lycos spokeswoman Dorianne Almann said the company regularly shuts down sites for prohibited member conduct, including threats to minors, stalking, and racially or ethnically offensive material.

She said a number of sites that did not violate the agreement were also mistakenly shut down, but would be restored within 24 to 48 hours.
