Yeah, it's great that people are concerned about righting a wrong, but in the digital age, we need to be careful. In the Boston bombings the /r crew had a totally different (incorrect) person pegged, and was sending out all this info about them.

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, for their reputation) that person had committed suicide a week or two before the bombings ever happened.

One mistake can potentially ruin the wrong persons life.

And what is Anonymous going to do? Fuck things up like they did in Stubbyville? I applaud them for trying to to the right thing, but they should tread carefully.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
