    lol, those pinkos have no intention of really helping in the "ongoing investigations". They're the ones behind the attacks in the first place. My guess, and that's all it is, is that they'll come up with a fallguy, put him in prison to appease the U.S., and 6 months down the road they'll hack us again.

    Agreed, it seems too suspicious to me that they released a story recently about them taking down the biggest hacking website before christmas but only "reporting" now?
