In the News And so the Wikileaks saga continues - with politics once again crossing with the technology side of things. After several DDoS attacks on Wikileaks' website, the organisation decided to move their website over to Amazon's cloud service yesterday. Today, Amazon kicked Wikileaks out of its cloud after being pressured by US Congress. Update: [Kroc] In a Q&A on the Guardian website, Julian Assange drops the bomb--Amazon failed the test: "Since 2007 we have been deliberately placing some of our servers in jurisdictions that we suspected suffered a free speech deficit inorder to separate rhetoric from reality. Amazon was one of these cases.". Stunning.

Which is pretty much what Wikileaks does.


Yes of course, because the US government asked wikileaks to publish its confidential messages!? (Sarcasm)

You don't have a clue, do you? Since when does a messenger need to be ordered around? Look up the definition of a messenger before you post something as stupid as:

A messenger delivers a message from one person to another, under orders of the initial person.

A messenger need only deliver a message for that person to be a messenger. No orders need to have been given.

Sheesh! The level of intellect in this forum has really hit rock bottom over recent months.
