"I like to think of DDoS as equivalents of sit-ins: both aim at briefly disrupting a service or an institution in order to make a point. As long as we don't criminalize all sit-ins, I don't think we should aim at criminalizing all DDoS." - Evgeny Morozov

From the article found here on the impact of Anonymous on the current Wikileaks hoohaa.

I agree with the quote. What do you think about this?
BOO

Hmmm... I have a problem with sit-ins because some students sat in the George Square lecture theatre a couple of years ago; while they did not interrupt my lectures they did cause some others to be rearranged. Basically, I feel that the action is largely pointless, and causes more harm than good. OTOH I fully support Wikileaks, I think that it is absolutely FANTASTIC that it exists. I only hope it continues to do so.

I disagree. It'd be too easy to get away with DDoSing just to be a dick instead of trying to make a point.
