You do realize what happens to sex offenders in prison, yes?

Maybe one of the cables will reveal that Gitmo isn't really closed...

You know AliEnvy, joking is fun, and you may post pictures here because everyone can easily find those in the interference photo thread, but bringing in the sex offender part (the stuff Assange apparently has been accused of) is going a bit far and offends me.

What are you implying about Gitmo? Did you mean that, according to you, Assange should be tortured or raped in a terrorist prison?

This case starts zeroing in on my opinion of the Wikileaks diplomatic leak so far; while I disagree with some of the apparent motivation, I still end up appreciating the end effect.

In this case it's because of the tension between how unsecured this information was, versus whatever danger might arise. The more "dangerous" Wikileaks' cable releases are, the more absurd it was that they were even accessible to millions of people in the first place. Far more dangerous to have an asymmetrical situation where one side has info the other thinks is private, than an open release.

Again, probably not Assange's direct intention behind the reveal, but I don't see an issue with appreciating contradictory effects.

PRESS RELEASE
Tue 7 Dec 15.55 GMT

Julian Assange Defense Fund frozen.

The Swiss Bank Post Finance today issues a press release stating that it had frozen Julian Assange's defense fund and personal assets (31K EUR) after reviewing him as a "high profile" individual.

The technicality used to seize the defense fund was that Mr. Assange, as a homeless refugee attempting to gain residency in Switzerland, had used his lawyers address in Geneva for the bank's correspondence.

Late last week, the internet payment giant PayPal, froze 60Keur of donations to the German charity the Wau Holland Foundation, which were targeted to promote the sharing of knowledge via WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks and Julian have lost 100Keur in assets this week.

One of the most fascinating aspects of the Cablegate exposure is how it is throwing into relief the power dynamics between supposedly independent states like Switzerland, Sweden and Australia.

WikiLeaks also has public bank accounts in Iceland (preferred) and Germany.

Your last popoulist post was just meant to provoke, it had nothing to do with the paragraph you quoted where I wrote about anti-U.S. or European sentiments. Hence my reaction.

Now go find proper medication.
Plenty of 'hard headed businessmen' have been lunatics.

However, I thought my post was entirely valid in the context of the discussion.

The drugs don't work, I already tried them.

So, Why is Wikileaks a Good Thing?

A primer on some of Wikileaks' prior activities. Keep clicking for more facts.

I think these recent examples of companies dissociating from Wikileaks despite the lack of any charges being brought and in a way they'd never do with the NYT is a bit disturbing. The "private" and "government" distinctions can sometimes blur together.

It will be interesting to see if any private actors try and fill the niche in the ecosystem.
