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: is down due to the attack. Update III: PayPal has caved under the pressure, and will release the funds in the WikiLeaks account.

Member since:

Now it's filled with Thoms personal opinnions which, by reading what he writes, he managed to learn from local leftwing newspaper. Thom, you might be good at finding nip info on technical stuff, but you suck as reporter.

So, OSNews has gone down the toilet because the opinions presented in the article do not match your own? I love cognitive dissonance theory. You do realise you're free to write your own article which we WILL publish, right? We've done so numerous times before.

Funny how people like you never take me up on that offer.

Also, I'm actually not left at all.
