Freenet nominated for Sourceforge award

According to Slashdot, Freenet has been nominated for the Sourceforge 2008 community awards as the project ‘Most Likely to be Shutdown By Government Agency’ (along with Tor, Truecrypt, and some others).

I guess its an honor, all publicity is good publicity as they say.  However, I don’t really consider getting shut-down by the US government to be a likely possibility unless there is a serious deterioration in the US political system, and fortunately I think the worst is behind us in terms of the abuses inspired by 9/11/01.
