The Pirate Bay has opened a blogging site, and is promising not to remove anything as long as it doesn't break Swedish laws.

Baywords.com opened yesterday issuing secure hosting and freedom of speech to all.

A posting from administrator brokep said: "Many blogs are being shut down for uncomfortable thoughts and ideas. We will not do that. Our goal is to protect freedom of speech and your thoughts. As long as you don’t break any Swedish laws in your blog, we will defend it."

brokep said the system was fairly basic because the group hoped to pop online quickly and make improvements over time.

Adverts will be added to the site soon along with improved stats and a captcha system. ®
