THIS is extremely serious.
It is no secret that a cabal of governments have run a coordinated series of DOS attacks against WL. No matter what you think of them, the sexual antics of its founder, or the leaks themselves, this is an ILLEGAL activity against a purveyor of information. Rather than go through the legal gyrations of actually parceling evidence and prosecuting him for illegalities, they pull this heavy handed KGB/Gestapo/Stasi kind of trick.
Mark my words. This is a bad bad bad precedent. Don't like what some guy critical of your government says? Don't bother with the law, just burn the newspaper building down. Get some goons from the other embassies in your country to help.
