The Julius Baer Stupidity Analyzed Further: You Can Reach Wikileaks through its IP Address

If you’re trying to reach Wikileaks, you can do so through its IP address 88.80.13.160, or to save you the trouble, here’s the link to the real Wikileaks site itself. The more I think about what Julius Baer (of the money laundering bank fame/infamy) did, the more ridiculous it becomes. I mean, why did they try to censor the entire Wikileaks over a single document? Why not just issue a take-down notice for that document? As it is, the domain name is not accessible, but the site along with the document incriminating Julius Baer is still online. Not only that, in trying to take down a public service, now everybody knows about the document and are rushing to read it.

Is this stupid or not?
