i am not saying that i agree with what Anonymous have done/are doing/going to do. i do admire them for fighting for free speech and net neutrality etc though and against the complete control of the internet by governments and the entertainment industries, the domain seizures and web site blacklisting.
the biggest thing that i find disturbing is that the Ddosing started with the entertainment industries. no one bothered to stop that from happening. no one from the federal government got the FBi or other law enforcement agencies involved because, basically, no one was in the least bit interested. as soon as the same thing happened(s) in retaliation of what had happened previously, all hell breaks loose!
'it is the worst thing that has happened! this should never be allowed!'
typical one-sided attitude of 'if i do it, it’s ok but if anyone else does it, it is destroying our business! stop them now! put them all in prison for life!'
So if someone called the “good guys” do it then it is legal. If someone called the “bad guys” do it then it becomes illegal. Your tax dollars at work.
