For most of the stories about Assange and Wikileaks on Slashdot you can generally count on two things: massive praise for both, and heavy down mods for any criticism of them. It doesn't matter if they are verifiably true or personal opinions, down they go, -1. Assange effectively has his own cult of personality that will defend him no matter what. I have little doubt that will be true even if he is eventually convicted of rape.
I don't claim that what I post is, to use your phrase, "everything that person is." But there are serious issues, and serious criticisms regarding Wikileaks from serious people. They are worth considering to balance out the praise and defense that is all but guaranteed to come from others. And how many of the Assange / Wikileaks fans are going to offer any criticism at all? Precious few.
As far as I go, it seems to me you are at best the pot calling the kettle black. I don't see you really adopting a balanced criticism of me. Shall I say that is your usual modus operandi? That you are a troll?
Rest easy though, the moderators will almost certainly be gentle with you. You come to defend Julian, not to criticize him. But frankly, your criticism in this case has little credibility with me. I've seen the pattern these discussions take all too often. It is already occurring - the head of this thread is -1. No surprise, the pattern is well established. Criticize Assange at your peril.
Let us close with this piece of wisdom for Julian: " A reporter worried that Assange would risk killing Afghans who had co-operated with American forces if he put US secrets online without taking the basic precaution of removing their names. "Well, they're informants," Assange replied. "So, if they get killed, they've got it coming to them. They deserve it.""
You better hope you never come between him and his goal, or he'll take pleasure in crushing you.
