    Bet they were surprised

    That knock on the door must have given them a shock.

    Though targeting a police organisation (SOCA), even if it's in another country, is always going to stir up a hornets nest. They should have stuck to defacing their school intranet pages and friends homepages.

      I bet they were even more surprised that members of Anonymous posted their names online...

      The two teens mentioned are supposedly the two most important members of the group 'DotNetFuckers', a fringe group with no particular skill...

      Also, they did attack the PST (Politiets SikkerhetsTjeneste - The Police Security Services, an intelligence agency within the Police.) so the police were after them anyway.

    "We have arrested the two we think were most important in these attacks, but we still want to talk to more people," Norwegian prosecutor Erik Moestue told the BBC."

    The most important and then released on bail not long after. What's the betting these two are no bodies in the hacktivists scene?

      More likely they fessed up and fingered cohorts in the face of jail time/heavy fines and the threat that would cause any leet wanna-be to ponder suicide - having their internet taken away.

    There's a nice stone pillar with a circular groove worn in the stone floor around it at Dragsholm Castle if the Swedes want to help with accommodation.

    Come to think of it, maybe Mr Assange is worried about this for bizarre historical similarities, Bothwell (Earl Of, i.e. James Hepburn) - had lady-trouble there too ;)

      Geographical ignorance is alas, hardly a joke, Brezhnev's Shadow ;

      Dragsholm Slot does not lie in Sweden, but in Denmark - to be more specific, in Hørve. AFAIK, Mr Assange has no connexion to the building....

    I'll bet the pucker factor is real high for these two clowns. Phuck around and go to prison.

    You ain't as anonymous as you think

    Are these people really this dumb? I guess we already know the answer. If at first you are in denial, reality will teach you quickly.
