*** update: I was apparently unclear below, apologies: I have nothing to do with these bloggers being arrested by the police and Six Apart was not hosting them, but the French radio Skyrock (Skyblog). They were calling for violence and riots on their blogs, trying to get more people in the streets burning cars and schools, this is why the police arrested them ***
Unfortunately many “kids” living in the suburbs are encouraging violence and crime using blogs and three of them where arrested ([FR, AP]) by the Police today. I can only approve that, blogs are not above the law and we should stop people encouraging violence using them.
As a blog host, we are in close contact with the Police and help them in case this happens, never happened on our brands up to now.
