GPF Comics seized by US. officials

  • I think it might be a joke. All the other ICE'd sites have a much bigger graphic, and point to 74.81.170.110. Essentially I.C.E. is legally poisoning the DNS for seized sites.

    GPF-Comics is pointing to 208.75.87.203, while this isn't proof it hasn't been seized, it seems strange and I want to be hopeful.

      If it is why would you choose this as an April Fools joke? Even as an ploy for attention it makes you wonder if it is real why they did it, which makes you question if indeed there was anything worth shutting it down for. I am not saying there is, but if leaves me with less "wow what a great idea for a prank" and more "WHY GOD WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME" feeling.

      • I'm pretty sure it's an April Fool's gag. My rationale is this:
        + I resolve www.gpf-comics.com to 208.75.87.203
        + A traceroute shows 208.75.87.203 to be sitting behind a datotel.com router
        + Datotel LLC is a colo hosting company and has been hosting gpf-comics.com at 208.75.87.203 for at least the last year
        + Visiting the site by IP alone brings up the same ICE domain seizure page, but the image breaks because the webserver auto-corrects the request to resolve to http://www.208.75.87.203/ICE_Seizure.jpg [75.87.203]

The reason computer chips are so small is computers don't eat much.
