Legal "The hacker hordes of Anonymous have transferred their fickle attention to Sony. They are currently attacking the company's online Playstation store in retribution for Sony's lawsuit against PS3 hacker George Hotz. A denial of service attack has temporarily taken down playstation.com."

I don't see morals on either side.

What does the price of anybody's condo have to do with this? Your comment suggests that since a Sony executive might or might not have an expensive condo it is morally just to cut off access to regular, innocent Playstation users. How do you know "Anonymous" don't have expensive condos? How many Sony executives or "Anonymous" do you know?

This is no Boston Tea Party or storming of the Bastille. This is just causing unknown collateral damage to innocent users who will temporarily not have access to playstation.com. This will only cause these innocent users to get mad at "Anonymous" and side with Sony. I don't agree with Sony's lawsuit AT ALL, but a smarter thing to do would be to create more access to the work that Sony hates so much. A denial of service attack on playstation.com is nothing more than a loud bark with no bite. Talking loud and then turning the other way. It doesn't take a genius to flood the internets. I actually see it as being lazy and empty of any good ideas.

An equivalent of the Boston Tea Party would be more destructive - hijacking a truck delivering PS3s to a store, and driving it into a river.

We should dress as our favorite Nintendo (Microsoft?) characters to pull this off.
