   Hurricane Electric obeyed the Chamber's letter and shut down the spoof
   site. But in the process, they shut down hundreds of other sites
   maintained by May First / People Link, the Yes Men's direct provider
   (Hurricane Electric is its "upstream" provider).

What's going on?  Since when are we required to take down an entire
customer's net for one of their subscriber's so-called infringement?

Heck, it takes years to agree around here to take down a peering to an
obviously criminal enterprise network....

My first inclination would be to return the request (rejected), saying
it was sent to the wrong provider.
