Neo_Mushroom writes "From the article:
"2channel, the largest Internet forum in the world and an ISP in Japan, has been shuttered by a Japanese court ruling in a civil slander case. The corporation managing 2channel was declared bankrupt and its assets will be seized. The ISP will close on January 15th, and the future of the famous "mega-BBS" is uncertain."
For those who've never heard of 2channel, the BBS is massively popular, recieving over 2.7 million posts every day."
