CSS Killswitch lets you non- destructively black out a difficult client’s website with the click of a button since as they say “Because sometimes, no matter how diplomatic you are, people are… well… mean.”
I say this is a funny strategy because of course its practical effect is limited (there’s no magic so it can be annoying for a while but the client can end up figuring out how to avoid the black out).
However since it seems that it’s a legal move it may be enough to convince your client that paying is in the end a better option.

Looking at the CSS Killswitch page markup for http://csskillswitch.com/ they sem to be spamming links for Accutane drugs. 🙁
Their strategy doesn’t seem so funny to me.
I don’t see the links you mention but obviously, my “funny” adjective refers to the idea of being able to black out web sites of clients that don’t pay.
