Legal "The hacker hordes of Anonymous have transferred their fickle attention to Sony. They are currently attacking the company's online Playstation store in retribution for Sony's lawsuit against PS3 hacker George Hotz. A denial of service attack has temporarily taken down playstation.com."

Karitku,

"Comparing Anonymous to Martin Luther King makes me just sick. Firstly King never hide his face, quite opposite he gave himself as example of fight against racism. King fought against goverment legistation, anonymous is just bullying company that has all rights to sue Hotz. Besides King was fighting goverment which isn't same as private enterprise. DDOS isn't same as protesting outside company store since people can still access those stores."


I didn't even make that comparison, you just invented it.

I knew someone would misinterpret my post that way, which is why I even stated that up front. Of course I know that fighting racism on the streets is different than fighting sony's overreaching control...duh!

My point was that MLK strategies would probably include some form of DOS in today's digital age if it helped him get people to notice his cause. And to that end, you haven't really provided a valid rebuttal.
