Through numerous celebratory posts (you know what day it is), and junk news, we have come out the other side with the best of the best. Tune in for stories such as:
One of the contributing committees that allocates IP address blocks to Africa announced that no new IP Addresses to countries who shut down the internet. A move to punish those who look to use the Internet as a tool to shut down information.
