What does fighting crime mean, exactly? Does it mean upholding the law when a woman shoplifts to feed her children, or does it mean struggling to uncover the ones who, quite legally, have brought about her poverty?

--from Ozymandias, Watchmen Issue 11

I do believe I have seen the first online vigilante act that might actually do something. I suppose, when you think about it, a group of determined super hackers could do just as much damage as the Justice League.

Anonymous, known for their clever psy ops war against Scientology, seems to have stepped it up a notch and hacked into Sarah Palin's Yahoo email account. You can read more at the Huffington Post, Gawker and especially check out the commentary at Boing Boing. Wikileaks has the whole thing but I can't get the link to work....Some open source spy network if you can't get it to work during crucial periods...they should use the Pirate Bay's new blogger system....

Unfortunately, now that you've hacked into the files of one of the Republican fraternity someone will be working to figure out who Anonymous actually is. They're going to want to see your face. What's that last line in the most recent Batman? Why is the Batman running? Because we're chasing him that's why. I hope they're as good as the Little Brother hackers. They'll have to be in order to stay out of jail. Now they've got Scientology hackers and the US government after them...good luck. Sometimes justice must be hooded. But not in a Klansman mexican border patrol kind of know what I mean.

Related Bonus: The first animated motion comic of the Watchmen. Issue one. Uncle Scam is....Rorshack! He prefers a civil war over Barack Obama even if millions die. I'm the Nite Owl! But not this Nite Owl. (Nice jazz background...)I've lost weight...Doc Menlo is Ozymandias...what is his mad scheme?
