something positive in pirating or not, the Wikimedia servers are not meant

Call it what you want, but the world is changed when ordinary people who
are just trying to do ordinary things
have a roadblock put in front of them. This is that kind of thing, and
it's the "revolution" power of the distributed internet. We can shut them
down, but Angolans are going to find another way to do the very things that
those with full access to the internet take for granted. As Jason says, we
should take great caution and give deep thought before taking a binary side.
