Hi ye all
I ve written about the ethical debate in hacktivism myself on my chapter on
sociopolitical cyberconflict, but also a good reference
here, and I think it takes a wonderful take on the issue is *Graham
Meikle* (2008)
'Electronic Civil Disobedience and Symbolic Power' in Athina
*Karatzogianni* (ed.)
*Cyber-conflict and Global Politics*, London: Routledge.

I would worry about the comment, if I have to be honest, the person who made
it sounds a bit too ignorant about the debates Gabriella is referring too,
and I am sure the call is taking a specific side to this and it is more than
obvious for those in the know. You dont have to explain for the ignoramus.
Whoever gets it, gets it. Better still whoever doesnt, will stay well

A note pointing out the difference between hacking and cracking would
have been useful probably...

I tend to prefer to hightlight the fact that there are differences and
tensions among hackers about what is appropriate in hacking rather than
just draw a neat line between hacking and cracking. There are many
transgressive acts in the history and contemporary face of hacking I
would not simply place in the cracker category for example. I usually
just highlight the internal debates among hackers as a way to prevent
such responses.
