http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=sherman+austin TONS of info out there on this. Basically, this guy ran a website with a script that allowed others to post messages on it (wow!). Someone put a link to a page that included basic bomb making instructions. SHERMAN AUSTIN DID NOT POST THE LINK, NOR DID HIS SITE CONTAIN THE ALLEGED INFORMATION. A law passed in 1997, sponsored by one Diane Feinstein (sp?) , makes it illegal to distribute illegal information with the intent to commit a federal crime. This guy's site was an anarchy site. He is presently serving a felony sentence for 1 year, and when he gets out, his parole has all kinds of inane limits like not being able to use a computer, and not associating with others that wish to change the government. Things that disturb me is: The media didn't come to this guy's aide. No one did. His property was destroyed, and then told it was lost. He didn't even make the link, or the page. It would be like charging physicsforums for my posts. The prosecutor looked ot push a deal of ONE MONTH in prison, and the judge decided to give him the max and refused to acknowledge the plea deal. This guy got SCREWED. I think his ideas on having no government are lame, but I don't think this is right at all.
