Some Anonymous activists call the attacks part of a new “Info-War” aimed at preserving free speech on the Internet.
Regardless of your opinion on Assange or WikiLeaks it has become patently obvious these script-kiddies (calling them hackers is an insult to genuine hackers) are too stupid to realize their actions are leading directly to the destruction of free speech on the internet in several ways. The most first, and most obvious, is their actions will prompt governments to increase regulations and laws over internet activity especially the free dissemination of information in the name of national security and internet usage stability. The second, organizations that make the internet operate ranging from ICAAN to ISPs to website hosts will want to start overly regulating content to protect themselves from government prosecution. Thirdly, businesses that keep the internet running may demand greater control of what is available on the internet to protect their businesses. Naturally, governments will go along with businesses in such a venture to ensure control for themselves.
So bravo to these morons. You’re destroying the very thing you claim to be protecting, “free speech”, with your delusions that you’re actually accomplishing anything to help your cause. Apparently “free speech” to these idiots means they can say and do whatever they want and every one else can not. Sadly, like spoiled children, they don’t even realize they’ve willingly sold out their own cause to the corporations and politicians by taking such destructive actions.
Well done. </sarcasm>
