Internet & Networking It looks like several companies are learning what happens when you mess with the internet - and they're learning it the hard way. Several major companies have been hit by the collective powers of Anonymous after 4chan launched several distributed denial-of-service attacks. What many have been predicting for a long time now has finally happened: an actual war between the powers that be on one side, and the internet on the other. Update: PayPal has admitted their WikiLeaks snub came after pressure from the US government, and Datacell, which takes care of payments to Wikileaks, is threatening to sue MasterCard over Wikileaks' account suspension. Update II: is down due to the attack. Update III: PayPal has caved under the pressure, and will release the funds in the WikiLeaks account.

First you are trollin... second had David not killed Goliath they would have been the slaves of the philistines and/or dead (undead slaves anyone?).

I mean bring back the days when you could kill ONE guy and pretty much win the war. Diplomacy doesn't help if they other guys a) want your land b) are on a war rampage or c) are just mean.

Fact is the philistines were only there because the didn't completely eradicate all the previous occupiers of the land... which they were supposed to have done and ended up living among them "diplomatically" you might say so look where diplomacy got them.
