An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft's Skype team is working extra hard right now, circumventing an attack that occurred earlier today by hackers claiming to be the Syrian Electronics Army (SEA). This group apparently defaced Skype's Facebook page, Twitter page, as well as the Skype blog. The message? 'Don't use Microsoft emails (hotmail,outlook), They are monitoring your accounts and selling the data to the governments.'"

    Because, no matter what, no matter how much I distrust the NSA, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is not my friend. Ironically, the most disturbing things about the spying systems NSA develops, and Snowden leaks, about monitoring things like Syrian internal communication, is the way those systems will be used by dictators in the nations the USA is trying to monitor. But although small nations like Syria and many others like to play the "underdog" card vs. the USA, wife beaters and child molesters don't make good partners. Thanks, but no thanks, SEA.

    (Of course, there's a chance that the hackers posting / or just posing as Syrian dictator dogs are trying to make this same point... That the NSA, as the enemy of dictatorial tyrants, is not my friend either... Inception!!)

    No idea, mate, I wasn't alive for any of that history, so I don't consider myself responsible for what other people did (good or bad).

    Still, I'm glad that you look up to your grandpa as I'm sure that all his bravery and good deeds have been passed down the hereditary line to yourself and that you'll soon be able to boast about how you dismantled all the corrupt machinations of the US government.

    By the way, that bomb recipe you sent me doesn't seem to work. What was the concentration of phosphorous required?

    The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy. Nothing more, nothing less.
