PayPal Surrenders, Still Needs Boycott

February 26, 2011 by


In the space of hours, PayPal blocked the account of Courage to Resist, got rightfully flamed, and then unblocked the accounts. It was a lovely little instance of a corporation being on the receiving end of some duly-deserved slapping around, and generally getting put in its place. Let us savor this wonderful victory over the […]

From the HBGary Emails: the Tree of Oppression, the Apple of Surveillance

February 24, 2011 by


I have successfully searched AnonLeaks for every email containing “COIN” and “ROMAS”. A few hundred emails later, my opinion of the US government and is incestuous corporate allies has, perhaps remarkably, fallen even lower. I hope to recover a few of the brain cells which ran screaming from my brain before I go to sleep. […]

Suckpuppets and Expanding the Information Desert

February 21, 2011 by


Pandora’s Box: the gift that keeps on giving. Anonymous really hit the jackpot when they were looking for the lulz. Hats off to you folks, and masks on, because that’s some really awesome stuff getting leaked. I finished this at 03.00… there might be typos, please be kind when pointing them out. I’ll correct things […]

WikiLeaks and US Gov’t Institutionalised Stupidity

The Limits of Cyberanarchy

February 17, 2011 by


Anarchy, as I understand it, is the political and social orientation which holds that all formalised systems of hierarchy and social control – notably governments – are axiomatically oppressive and need to be dismantled permanently. A fast way to start arguments between anarchists is to wonder aloud about the methods necessary to dismantle said organisations. […]

Barrgate: The Alternate Reality of the US Government

February 12, 2011 by


Although I’ve only read through a small portion of the HBGary emails released by Anonymous, a very interesting picture is already forming in my mind. As I had written earlier, this is a very strange world in which the US government and its incestuously intertwined corporate complex exists. However, it’s much, much more insane than […]

Launch: AnonLeaks

February 12, 2011 by


Thanks to the stupendous success of the HBGary raid, Anonymous has begun AnonLeaks. First up will be, as I understand it, more recovered HBGary emails. Join in on the Epic Fail Parade: follow AnonLeaks on Twitter. Do it for the lulz. [EDIT Dear god I can be such a flake sometimes. Website updates to actually […]
