JotForm.com suspended for user generated content

The suspension is connected to some content that was posted on their network most likely by a web user.

The company is still working on fixing the problem to get their domain back. For now, they are recommending the users of their services to change the code to replace JotForm.com with JotForm.net.

JotForm spoke about the problems:

Many people on the comments assumed the content was posted by us. This can happen to any site that allows public to post content. SOPA may not have passed, but what happened shows that it is already being practiced. All they have to do is to ask GoDaddy to take a site down. We have 2 million user generated forms. It is not possible for us to manually review all forms. This can happen to any web site that allows user generated content.
