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.

It's a bit silly to attribute intentions to people you know absolutely nothing about. In fact, it tells a lot more about you than about LulzSec.

Perhaps, but not nearly as silly (and childish) as ruining other peoples online experience and causing them pain just "for the fun of it".

I'm sure LulzSec can use the same argument, pointing to RIAA/MPAA/the gubmint.

My point is, however, not that your judgement is morally wrong, just that it contains no insight.
