[quote:Sol Reflector:MV8yNzc1MzUyXzQ4NDgwNzcxX0ZENkE1ODI3] Brown has been called many things during his brief public career – satirist, journalist, author, Anonymous spokesman, atheist, "moral fag," "fame whore," scourge of the national surveillance state. His commitment to investigating the murky networks that make up America's post-9/11 intelligence establishment set in motion the chain of events that culminated in a guns-drawn raid of his Dallas apartment last September. "For a long time, the one thing I was happy not to see in here was a computer," says Brown.

I was amazed to find that no threads were on GLP today discussing this landmark case against internet freedom and freedom of the press. We are truly doomed. I only heard of this case a few weeks ago and assumed it would be a hot-potato issue here among the freedom-mongers on GLP. I was sadly disappointed that nobody even posted anything regarding this decision. God help us.
