"are suspected of planning coordinated cyber-attacks against institutions including Colombia's defence ministry and presidential websites, Chile's Endesa electricity company and national library, as well as other targets."

"Chile's Endesa electricity company"

"Endesa electricity company"

"electricity company"

"electricity"

Umm, am I the only one who remembers an article a couple of weeks ago where "Anonymous" said that under no uncertain terms that they have never been, not now, and never will target the electrical grid? And didn't about half of you, like a bunch of big, fat, stupid lemmings, believe them without question?

I swear, some of you guys are suspicious as hell of every little thing that comes out of the government, seeing conspiracies everywhere, but will trust a group of strangers on the Internet totally and emphatically without question because "they're here to protect you!"

I mean, be suspicious of the government and everything, but be at least a little bit judicious and democratic with your skepticism.
