So many leaks, so little time!

As tempting as it may be to focus on a certain wikileaker's condom use/caddishness/rape allegations, it's hardly the most serious issue to wikileak's survival, since other wikileakers will carry on.

So let's not forget the real news is all the evil things the U.S. government has been up to in Iraq, Afghanist and worldwide. Try to focus. What really outraged you the most so far from the Contents of the United States diplomatic cables leak? Just looking at the list erases my memories of shock as things have dripped out; my mind is numb from all the information. Little of it terribly surprising and in the end I say - Yeah, dozens more reasons to get that nonviolent radical decentralist secession movement going. After the solstice holidays...

In fact the main issue still rattling around my mind is:
Are denial of service attacks where you overload a server "terrorism" or just nonviolent protest like a sit-in." As opposed to true destructive hacking which obviously is usually a crime, but let's not start on issues of if it's to save lives, etc. Too early in the A.M. for such weighty nonviolence theory debates.
