Well you guys have certainly raised some interesting points. It is not as clear of a right and wrong issue as I thought yesterday. I am not saying my mind is completely changed, though I have a lot to think about. I still feel the government can benefit from limiting websites critical of the government. Criticism does hinder much of the government.
In america it is much harder for the government to get things done because people believe everything in the media and even make decisions based on comedians impressions. Free speech is good but people should behave.
I still feel that what Anon did was wrong. And now the Australian government can use that as an excuse to build up their security. So they may have done the one thing that hinders them. We all remember when AO was hacked and I didn't like losing posts or messages.
