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.

What I can't argue with is that you run the site and thus you (and the other editors) get to decide it's content. However please spare us the insulting attempts to justify being off-topic. I respect you more for saying, "What I say goes." However, it's a bit pathetic to retort with sarcastic remarks on how, "Slashdot is an interesting websites (sic) covering the use of slashes and dots all over the globe."

Just because it needs saying... The New York Times is a newspaper that is based in New York. Is OSNews headquarters located in a place called 'OS'? Is that what you are sarcastically trying to tell us? Or are you making a stupid argument because you're unable to come up with a coherent one? ;-)

PS. I like OSNews (and thus, by extension, your articles). I wouldn't try to hold you to a higher standard if I didn't.
