Comment A single domain was silenced. (Score 0, Troll) 183

Big deal. One domain was silenced.

He can still work and do what he needs, now he has to participate in the rest of the media network.

That's the whole point of the Internet being invented in the 60's to begin with. One site / segment get's bombed, you can still get on in other segments of the network. All he needs to do is submit Press Releases just like everyone else.

Problem that's not a problem has been solved.

just lob a few largish asteroids at our major cities and wait for a year or two

That's the one sure thing to guarantee our survival. Get rid of all the armchair generals that insist that we combat the enemy according to the Geneva convention and take prisoners etc.

Fuck all that. War is total. Without most city dwellers the people that are doing the heavy lifting in the fields and the mines will get the job done. As usual.
