This has to be one of the scariest things I've read in a long while. It
used to be that there was alot of hoopla over the Internet being an
anarchy. Now it seem we have our first gang of vigilante thugs.

Someone, a few months ago, posted a message saying that the people who
were trying to censor the internet couldn't even boot a Mac, and likewise
everyone tore him to shreads for saying such a preposteous thing. Now we
have absolute proof that this underestimation of our enemies was
completely off base.

Here it is, the Internet's worst nightmare; a band or religiously driven,
techno-literate virtual morality police who would like nothing more than
to see those who don't cautau to their interests thrown in a
not-so-virtual prison. It's going to be a long, cold winter.
