Anonymous is on shaky ground with this. Their view is that,
the use of Distributed Denial of Service (DdoS) attacks is simply the technological equivalent to blocking access to a building in a traditional form of protest. It said that it was “irrelevant” where the infrastructure was located, either in the real world or in cyberspace.
This claim is made in ignorance of the power of botnets. Thus in my view this undercuts Anonymous's claim to the technological high ground. The case that I cited previously refutes the point against such errant thinking. A sit in or protest requires a phyiscial presense while a DDOS can effect one computer "sitting" in multiple seats. There is a great deal of fairness lacking in anonymouss' analogy.
This is aside the fact that Governing actors, such as Egypt, would be quick to adopt such idea's in the spirit of the DOS, as they have done so recently.
