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

@bryanv - keep your religious beliefs out of this.

There's nothing worse than a religiously-zealotous TROLL!

Go find another bridge!

This thread's political enough as it is - let's keep religion out of, okay? ;)

I never stated what my religious beliefs are.

I merely pointed out that zionist religions (as a whole) have no issue glorifying the actions of David, while at the same time the large majority of individuals who praise his efforts condemn the efforts of modern individuals whom act and behave much as David did.

I am firmly planted in my own faith, which is one of the faiths I'm speaking of.

Most people, for whatever reason, do not realize how hypocritical they are of modern day conflicts, while praising the exact same tactics used in history.

My only conclusion to this, is that more often than not, the zionist religions of today ignore the history and 'boring' parts of their holy texts and have some seriously thick rose-colored glasses with which they view the past. This confuses me.

These same people shill at the thought of modern 'clean' warfare fueled by the very same motives as most of todays conflicts praise the deeds of the horrifyingly grotesque methods of mass slaughter in the history books which were fought on the same pretexts as todays escalating conflicts.

Hypocrite much?

I am not criticizing any religion. I am criticizing the close-minded nature of most people, who like any good zealot fails to see the negative impacts of their own actions while condemning the exact same qualities in others.

I have no delusions of how evil I am capable of being.
