I’m not going to state any position on whether blocking Torrent and file-sharing sites or hacking the govt sites is right or wrong.
I’m just going to point out the usual UMNO nonsense and hypocrisy.
From The Star 17 June 2011:
Govt won’t filter Net despite attacks, says DPM
KUALA LUMPUR: The Government will continue its policy of not filtering the Internet, regardless of attempts to hack into its websites or otherwise, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
“This should not be seen as a restriction of one’s freedom to get services via the Internet,” said Muhyiddin, who acknowledged that the hacking attempts were related to actions taken by MCMC to block 10 file-sharing sites.
What Bizarro World stunt is he trying to pull?
They are already filtering ‘apostate’ sites (try and access FaithFreedom.org and Pedestrian Infidel) and torrent sites, and the Anonymous hack attacks were meant to tell the govt NOT to filter! The DPM is twisting the hackers’ motives 180 degrees!
Wimp Lo: “I am bleeding. Making me the victor!”
Sadly cannot find the video snippet for the above. Have some images instead:
And the last line I quoted, where DPM scolds the hackers for preventing free access to the Net? Pot, meet kettle.
