These hacktivists are pretty good in what they do. So when they announce that they're going to hack into some site, I fully believe them.
After all, these guys have done in Mastercard, PayPal and the rest of the big leagues for refusing service to whistle-blower site Wikileaks.
Speaking of Wikileaks, I was shocked to note that I no longer can access their archives. Only a couple of weeks ago, I was happily browsing for new bits of information about our idiotic government.
Then, work started picking up and I didn't have the time to look through Wikileaks. Before I knew it - BANG!!! It was banned by the ruling coalition that calls itself our government.
So I support the effort by Anonymous in hacking into the official portal and dishing out a denial of service (meaning that no one can access that site) in revenge of the government censorship of WikiLeaks.
However, I can't see it being a big deal (except for humiliation and bad publicity for the government). I don't think many people log on to that site anyway!
If you're curious about whether it will really happen, feel free to check it out yourself.
