[YellowTimes told me that their hosting provider, Vortech Hosting, pulled the plug because of pressure from its upstream provider, has posted a far more disturbing video clip and hasn't received any threats yet (at least as of mid-afternoon). --Declan]

Declan, In case you have not heard yet, the Canadian web site,, was shut dow for two hours until they removed content that their hosting company deemed offensive. The 'offensive' content was a photo of an American POW and a photo of a dead Iraqi child. You can find YellowTimes side of the story here: -- Robert J.
