"Hackers Take Aim at GOP"

Here. I think it's moronic that dissidents in this country would work against free speech. I mean, the whole act of dissidence relies on a political system that values free speech. And then, if you go ahead and try to muzzle someone else, in the end all you're doing is eroding your own rights, as well as giving your cause a bad image.

The point of the electronic demonstrations isn't to take down a site, according to Ricardo Dominguez, co-founder of the Electronic Disturbance Theater, or EDT, which is releasing a FloodNet program of its own. Unlike hackers' denial-of-service attacks, which often hijack computers against their users' will, EDT's JavaScript-based software depends on how many people use the program. "It's a way to let people around the world gather and let their presence be felt," Dominguez said.

Ha. Bringing mob action into the 21st century.
