Last year I wrote a post right after Thanksgiving entitled: "While You Were Eating You're Turkey Homeland Security Was Seizing 9 Domains".

Well I could have repeated the headline today except the number would be 131 domains rather than just 9.

Looks like Homeland Security is going to make domain seizures on Thanksgiving as common in the US as Turkey and Stuffing.

Here are the domain names seized yesterday.

Most of the seized domain names look like they were allegedly selling sports jerseys but there are some other brand knockoffs as well in the list.

As always all seized domains are either .com or .net's

All the domains now have what has become a well known page:
