And what good is this going to do? They are giving them a taste of their own medicine, sure, but still, Rupert and others are about to go through hell. Rupert may claim innocence, but this is severely damaging to his reputation. I am willing to bet that Rupert will suffer the consequences of this for years to come.

IMHO, the last thing we need is vigilantes dispensing internet justice.
 
Read the news ... the cops are already starting to round up the "anonymous" members and dispensing justice for their criminal activities /// LulZ will be next.

Encouraging other (mainly young) users to engage in similar activities is just stupid ... and contravenes the Toms TOU (Terms of Use).

Encourage others to engage in this sort of activity with posts here will see users banned.

Iv'e now deleted all posts of this nature.

While you're at it, you may as well delete the spam ads like the ones above and ban those users too.

Nothing constructive short of landing a job as a security consultant at large, prestigious organization like a bank or government branch. The ones that don't end up in jail, that is.

I feel like the benefits of Kids learning of this type of 'crime' and perhaps engaging in it to a certain extent far out-weigh the consequences. They can learn about violent crimes like gangs and what not....or they can focus on this type of, and partially contribute/pioneer a new age of awareness in our current technological age.

I coulda engaged in gangs as a youth, but instead i reverse engineered Pac-man/dig-dug on an Apple IIe. WAAAY more beneficial since I had no plans to be a mobster.

It is a shame that users are censored/banned for expressing approval of political vigilantes who expose corruption, when authorities are unwilling to investigate the same. LOL. Tomsguide is a top notch organization.

I agree with Robert Benson You should be able to voice you opinion with out the threat of being banned. Censorship much? Plus how can you totally ban someone they can just open another account and be back posting all day long I mean just look at the spammers on here they are the ones that should be banned. Whatever..

Considering the context of your post, the only thing you have achieved here is the possibility of inciting flame wars.

You've broken several rule of quality modship:
1. Never refer to a user as stupid, ignorant, etc.. It does not matter if they are or are not. You are supped to set the example. There is no need to stoop to that level.
2. Don't talk to your users in a condescending fashion. A good moderator is more than capable articulating what it is he/she wishes to convey without negative emotional connotations.
It makes you look childish in the eyes of adult users.

These are government sponsored hacker groups. The US government has found a way to get public support on anything they want to do. This is a way for net neutrality to become a reality.

Sounds like someone got a bit delete-happy with their mod privileges.

I haven't liked what lulzsec has done before (nearly pointless hacking of game servers), but as this is Murdoch and his media distortion empire...

Ya know, I can't help but wonder if these guys would bother (or crawl out from under their rock) if the media stopped giving them so much lead coverage.
