islamonline crisis

As if the online muslim ummah couldn’t get any more messed up, today we have this:

IslamOnline goes offline

Workers’ jihad at Islamic Website

Islam Online in crisis as administration threatens to fire journalists

Going Off-line

Although I never agreed with everything written on the site (but then, when does anyone ever fall 100% in lock step with everything?), I’ve always appreciate the diversity of opinions found at Islamonline, especially when the question and answer section would reference multiple opinions from a variety of madhabs and scholars.   I would be very sad to see this voice taken offline, or radically changed to just a single point of view.

Is it fair for a group of people to move in and take over an established website, dramatically changing it’s direction?

*sigh*

Also, twitter confuses me.  I’m trying to follow the goings on here, but it’s like, all in code or something.
