FBI seized Backpage.com – and the new website is WEIRD

This last week, the FBI (along with multiple other agencies) seized the website Backpage.com.  And the website that the government agencies put in place is… really, really weird.  Just downright ODD.  Because I find this interesting I pick apart the “website has been seized” page they put in place (including the HTML, the image, and the whois information) — if, for no other reason, than to document the way the US government does such things.
