Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, after 50 days of causing amok on the web, the guys and/or girls behind LulzSec have called it quits last night. After hacking into the systems of various Arizona law enforcement agencies and releasing countless internal documents, they published a statement on Pastebin yesterday, dumping yet another boatload of data on The Pirate Bay, and announcing their disbanding.

They aren't living -under- the law. They're living outside of it. Their continued presence is a violation of the law -- hence ILLEGAL.

Also, if they're here living under our law, then why aren't they PAYING TAXES LIKE THE REST OF THE VOTING POPULATION?!

Yet, they continue to receive the benefits of social services paid for by the rest of the LEGAL, VOTING, TAX-PAYING POPULATION.

We damn well ought to be able to tell them to f**k off and go home. If they want to participate in our society, there are legal ways in which to do that. It's a process engineered to weed out the leeches, and to reward those individuals and families which genuinely want to live, contribute, and flourish in our society.

The rest of the leeches can GTFO.

They can not be in violation of the law if they are not under the law.
