back to article MailOnline pulls recipe site after innocent young cookbook DEFILED

The Mail Online has pulled its recipes website after it was vandalised by Libyan cyber-hijackers.

How is Lybia anyways?

Lybian cyber-hijackers ... bragging about their conquest

Must be the after-effects of all that viagra distributed by Ghaddafi for RAPE, as detected by the truthy Susan Rice.

Re: How is Lybia anyways?

Right? Nobody needed any justification for ousting Gaddafi. He was like that asshole at school who finally gets the shit kicked out of him and none of the teachers standing right there see anything. Anybody could have gone over there and gotten rid of him and nobody would have cared. At all. No need for people to go embellishing when the plain facts are more than enough.

I really don't understand the 'Libyan Hacker' thing at all though. Why bother? If they're wanting to do something politically motivated there's never been a better time than now to establish your own Dictatorship. The infrastructure is already in place. Print up some ginormous posters and throw up a few giant statues of yourself and you've got a ready made kingdom, perfect for a new experiment in government. Hell, anything directed at their own country is about 1.87 million times more effective than defacing an English pastry website.

It just sounds to me like a bunch of disaffected basement dwellers in Libya are using civil unrest as an excuse to be dumbasses. Alternatively it could be an incredibly misguided campaign against some nebulous perceived injustice promulgated by pastries?

Is there any evidence this stuff is really truly actually anything to do with Libya or... well, y'know?

Lockerbie 25th anniversary is about now. Sympathy to all those affected.

Lockerbie == Libya, right? Or maybe not:

Lots of things that sounded like tinfoil hat stuff five years ago don't sound so tinfoil any more.

It's this kind of insightful political reporting that is sorely missed in the mainstream media.
