Even if you think Wikileaks is the greatest thing since sliced bread, you should agree that hacking the websites of companies that choose not to do business with Assange and his enterprise is plainly engaging in thuggish criminality.

On the other hand, engaging in gangsterism as revenge for a corporate decision that one disagrees with is close to morally indefensible. So is hacking Sarah Palin's credit card information. Grow up, "Anonymous."
