US Authorities Shut Down WordPress Host With 73,000 Blogs

Is a 'history of abuse' from some sites really sufficient justification to shut down 73,000 blogs...

"After the U.S. Government took action against several sites connected to movie streaming recently, nerves are jangling over the possibility that this is just the beginning of a wider crackdown. Now it appears that a free blogging platform has been taken down by its hosting provider on orders from the U.S. authorities on grounds of “a history of abuse”. More than 73,000 blogs are out of action as a result."
