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.

I had to register because this is the most idiotic thing I've ever read in these comments. Sorry, no offense.

First off, Martin Luther King Jr. wasn't fighting against a private company. Martin Luther King would use boycotting/marches/protest/sit-ins as a strategy, he wouldn't use a strategy that would negatively affect the people who he would want to support him. Doing a DDoS against Sony's website of the PSN doesn't do anything except probably annoy people. Martin Luther King wasn't as dumb as you seem to think. If you honestly believe he would condone this childish BS or think it's a good strategy, then you must think the guy was pretty stupid.
