Releasing of corruption, illegal killings, etc. YES! releasing of private diplomatic cables, NO.
Would Wikileaks be happy if someone on their team leaked all their private conversion logs to the outside world? My guess is no. Noone would be happy about this, this is private and should remain so.
Whilst I don't agree to what Amazon, Paypal, MC did, I am not surprised. The government didn't do anything when they were leaking previous documents, but they certainly passed the line when they released these diplomatic cables.
Seems like the pirate party is assisting Wikileaks. Why are these individuals against movie/record/software companies making a profit? They seem to think 100+ million dollar movies will still continue to be made if noone bothers paying for it?
