Assange called out by Wikileaks

In the realm of hacktivism you have hubris and then you have Anonymous. To whit, the folks at Anonymous have distanced themselves from Wikileaks due to its devolution into “The Julian Assange Show”.

Anonymous does state that it continues to oppose the treatment of Mr. Assange, but is distancing itself from the organization as a whole.

The straw that broke the camel’s back? Wikileaks attempt to get visitors to pay to see the top secret files its released. Seems WL has lost track of the credo: Information Wants To Be Free.
