@*#&@#*&@# that wasn't even paid off yet!
Greenwald, as a former lawyer, thinks that journalism is the same thing as "discovery" and is angry that Wired didn't share the chat logs they sourced with him so he could continue his rabid defense of Manning and Wikileaks. He has been attacking Wired and Poulsen ever since.
I know it's trendy on the interwebs to be all pro-Wikileaks and pro-Anonymous, but people really should be a little more critical in their reading.
"1966 Ford breaks down on highway. Does this further prove that all cars suck?"
Except for the fact that many of the other sites/services for which I use my email address have gone into the leaked torrent, found my email address, and locked my account and forced me to change my password, even though I haven't used the same password amongst the sites. I've spent the last week getting locked out of various places and having to come up with all new passwords
Life's what you make it.
The only thing that Slashdotters need to remember is the next time they pile on *any* other group for being self-serving and close minded (Republicans, Environmentalists, Christians, Vegans, Wall-Street-types, what have you), remember how Slashdot overwhelmingly supported Childs, regardless of the evidence of his hubris.

A very ironic statement on your part.
Hi uhhhhh this is your uhhhhhhh captain, would someone mind checking my uhhhhhh Facebook page?
Can't wait until Steed and Peel break into song in the middle of a pursuit.
People read at a variety of levels for a variety of reasons. Just because one person doesn't enjoy Joyce doesn't mean that there isn't another person who enjoys the challenge of wading through dense material. If someone doesn't enjoy using Linux, does that invalidate Linux as a useful operating system?
This is retarded.
I point my router's DNS to OpenDNS.org and everything works great. If I type a BS domain I get the OpenDNS search page.
One idiot's Wordpress blog is enough to make it to the front page? I mean, I think Comcast is the devil incarnate, but there are plenty of legitimate reasons to hate them without making up BS stories.
1. Why did they do this on a Monday, when lower Manhattan is jammed with workers, as opposed to a Sunday, when it's not?
2. Why keep it a secret? Were they worried terrorists would try to shoot the plane down or something?
So in all likelihood instead of having to send someone halfway around the world every time a story breaks we will simply pay a "bounty" to the local reporter that provides the best story.
And we'll end up with CNN's iReport.
