I have found out minutes ago I can access wikileaks again and all of Palins emails 'were accessible' after the site got shut down after Palin cried out that she wanted the authorities to stop the leaks, when I see if wikileaks was online, No luck! but then after some time passed and I tried again I could access wikileaks.
So now I am thinking, why is the FBI allowing people to download Palins emails again? Maybe they shut it down long enough to install a monitoring system to see how many people will download the emails and break the law, and who will goto prison for their IPs downloading it.
Im not trying to sound paranoid but common sense of any government system would be to keep a site up to track and trap people like honey-pot proxies tracking hackers. So please use extreme caution when downloading from wikileaks, like use foreign proxies from Iran or countries that dislike America so the CIA can't get your IP and don't forget to use encryption too.

Sorry if I am talking fearful but I am jkust trying to warn people the possibilities of downloading Palins emails.

My recommendations for accessing the emails:

    TOR

    Public Wifi (Not private Wifi, you don't want a poor granny investigated by the FBI!)

    HTTPS Ninjaproxy

    iPig Public server

    Put a proxy on a free host then remove it when done.

    Run away from society before the marked men come in with guns

So if I go download this stuff now (I can't, WikiLeaks is down for me), what laws am I breaking and on what grounds am I going to prison?

:lol: :tinfoilhat:
Wikileaks knows how to fend off government interference and probably has mirrors in dozens of countries. More likely it just had some random downtime because of a peak in hits or for maintenance.

other things you could try is .

1 use someone else's wireless connection so then they talk the fall if the fbi does not buy the story "oh someone broke into my wireless and set me up".

2. download from the newsgroups (newsgroups are 1 way and unless a trap was set on the news server you should be safe)

ejoness...

What you recommend is pure bullshit, and discredits the entire Slyck community. You might want to think real hard about the contents of your input before you post from now on. What you contribute is a reflection on the file-sharing community too, and to be honest, the quality of your posts only supplies ammo to the opposition.

At this point, I'm sure that every news organization around the world has downloaded this pile of emails.
The real people who are in trouble if they have not covered there tracks well is the person or person's who
originally preformed the hack.

The thing is when your running for publice offcice the goverment gives you protections that the
average person does not receave. (who has had there email hacked that is.)
