Some call this the Streisand Effect.

"an attempt to hide or remove a piece of information has the unintended consequence of causing the information to be publicized widely and to a greater extent than would have occurred if no contrary action had been attempted."

Stoopid.

"See below for some of the best responses -" ...

???

Really, these are the best responses? A bunch of jokers linking to the article? Wow, the standard for social commentary has really bottomed out lately.

The government is getting oh so paranoid.

"Watch What You Tweet About WikiLeaks: Twitter Reacts" Based on that headline, I actually expected to find out what Twitter's reaction was by reading the story. But their reaction is missing. Where did it go? Guess I'll have to log in to Wikileaks to find out.

If you want to know more about why vested power around the world wants to kill the Wikileaks messenger, check out http://www.wikileaks.ch/about.html. If that link has been erased down the memory hole by the time you get there, try this: http://wikileaks.info/.

If you want to know more about why Palin, O'Reilly, and Beck and other anti-government "conservatives" are so opposed to Wikileaks, remember that behind all their wind is an absolute adoration of unfettered authority.

If there were any journalists doing real journalist research and investigation we would not need WikiLeaks. The fact that Rolling Stone magazine, New Yorker magazine and WikiLeaks have to be the ones breaking major news speaks volumes of the quality of the major "news" organizations.

I've been thinking this for days, and only a really busy week kept me from making the same point, altho you expressed it much better than I could have. Seymour Hirsh would likely find little newsworthy in the WIkileaks info, but thats bec. he makes a genuine effort to investigate and develop sources in the State Dept. and the Pentagon. He's one of the few.

I esp. enjoyed the leak about the Afghan president's brother who was caught bringing 52+ million US DOLLARS into Egypt in his luggage. Clearly theft, obviously from the US taxpayer, not interrupted, not reported, and evidently he was allowed to keep the money. Now WHY shouldn't US taxpayers know about that little incident? Embarassing to the US State Dept? It should be, but not enuf, apparently, that the guy caught redhanded was forced to return the loot.
