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: Visa.com is down due to the attack. Update III: PayPal has caved under the pressure, and will release the funds in the WikiLeaks account.

Yeah, because they had to invade that patch of land.

God told us to take their land and kill them all. We are so good we left some of them alive, and how do they pay us? Sending Goliath. Philistine terrorists want us dead, so we are entitled to kill them!

You'd think after a few thousand years, they'd have learnt a lesson or two.
