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.

RE[4]: OS news?

If you want to be respected like Ars Technica or LWN, try holding yourself to the standards of actual news outlets

Isn't it astounding how easy the Internet makes it for people to express their dissatisfaction? Well it also allows you to do things differently just as easily.

You, my man, seem like a brave lad who knows what it takes to makes a successful news site. Not only as successful as OSnews but just as successful as Ars Technica. You're better then Thom so it should be easy.

I personally find OSnews to be just to my liking. Technology news with a stint of (technological) politics.
