Nymz writes: A recent wave of cyber-attacks has been directed at multiple Estonian institutions, including government ministries, political parties, news organizations, and banks. The scope of attacks suggest the entire country is the target, and with no clear solution for dealing with this type of situation, one has to wonder if an escalation to a conventional-attack or war is far off.

Namely that 50% of reports about Russia must be positive (the government perspective type), and that criticism of Putin is considered extremism (the land you in jail type), and that America must be portrayed as an enemy (the elimination of free speech type). Expect these new rules to be applied liberally (the coming soon to online speech type). New York Times article.
