    They will do anything to hide the truth about their own criminality...hound the guy and accuse him of sex crimes etc. Long live wikileaks!

    I think there should be a distinction between the org and the person. sure thing that the accusations strangely coinciding with the struggle to keep the org from leaking documents, however there is not much insight about the accusations and the guy is a human being in the end of the day.

    although there is a chance of things being related would prefer not to mix in this thread the personal matter and to stay on topic

    Yeah, like we believe that! Why not accuse him of the Lindbergh kidnapping as well while they're at it. ;)

    The problem with this material being disclosed is that too many people
    get hurt. I don't care about the politicians whose doings are disclosed,
    I care about the people that are "behind the lines" feeding information
    to friendly governments and whose life's are endangered by irresponsible
    individuals. This Wikileaks guy is a modern "useful fool".

    The government in my country might not be my friend but other
    governments are.

    Not mentioned before in this thread, but Wikileaks.nl has also been available for some time now.

    There are some idea's for decentralized DNS via P2P, but I'm curious about security implications, it would seem easy to do things like DNS poisoning.

    wikileaks.de is as well. however there seems currently the dynamic of a steam roller going on, trying to bring the platform to its knees. the german domain is registered since 2006 by a German citizen on behalf of wikileaks, it just remains to be seen whether it is feasible to dodge the applied pressure - as there obviously is.

    most people would not care supporting a whistle-blower platform, e.g. boycotting amazon, everydns, tableusoftware and paypal, as it would cause discomfort their end.

    Looks like paypal has now cut off wikileaks, so they can no longer receive donations. At least not via paypal.

    Edit:
    Sorry, I see above it was already posted.

    Thomas Jefferson:
    All this talk of "illegal" this and "illegal" that by our great freedom loving democracies: Has wikileaks actually been charged with anything, anywhere ??

    Shame all those hosters, shame, shame, shame. :mad:
    Pathetic cowardice.
