Privacy, Security, Encryption Oh boy, what do we make of this? We haven't paid that much attention to the whole thing as of yet, but with a recent public statement on why they do what they do, I think it's about time to address this thing. Yes, Lulz Security, the hacking group (or whatever they are) that's been causing quite a bit of amok on the web lately.

Thom: It is in governments' natures to control where it is not needed, to regulate what doesn't need regulating, and to bureaucratise that which is efficient.

Eh this is the same Thom who was so in favour of giving the Dutch government powers to regulate ISPs? Making a few companies illegal providing essential services for users along the way?

I.e. certain companies in The Netherlands provided filtering services for people who chose them as an ISP. But that's now illegal.

But usually people who are against government legislation are for it when they like it. I.e. they are against certain government legislation which is inconvenient for them, but for it when it is convenient.

Thanks Thom for a totally consistent message. But perhaps you have seen the light. Welcome aboard in that case.
