This place is more dead than I thought.

Ok, so you are all probably pretty tired of hearing about Wikileaks, but I thought we could have a discussion about Mr. Assange and his website. Do you think his website is good/bad? Do you agree with his purpose in releasing documents (more transparent world/justice/etc.)?

Personally, I find him fucking unbearable. Not least because every time I turn the news on, I hear his name. I honestly wouldn't care if he was locked up or conveniently went 'missing', a certain level of secrecy is necessary within government. Oh and him and his followers seem to have a very severe case of unwarranted self-importance.

It's about time governments feared their citizens again. I'm withholding judgment on Assange, but I don't believe his motives are as pure as pushing for transparency. I'd like him to keep releasing stuff, as it gives Julia Gillard a platform to make herself out to be a complete joke.

Edit: grammar.

Indeed. "Well, um, it's not against the law here, but you Americans really need to pull your fingers out and get this guy".

I agree.
