    as far as i can tell…wikileaks is a viral marketing campaign… for… helen mirren? she stole secrets… then… raped? in a movie funded by paypal? i think i have a fairly good understanding of this issue so gchat me if i've been unclear.

      paypal…what do you mean

      • http://hbgwhem.tumblr.com/ hbgwhem.tumblr.com

        paypal is one of the words i use when someone says wikileaks and it seems to register with whoever is talking about the issue. they give me an 'approving nod' as if i've cued into a important piece of the puzzle. Paypal is probably involved but will likely make you paypal them 20 bucks before they will discuss it.

        paypal stopped allowing payments to wikileaks, so did visa & mastercard. then hackers from 4chan shut their websites down for a day. Wikileaks is now suing paypal…

        wikileaks is sueing paypal…

        sweet…

      • Bensaucier

        wait, they are suing visa and mastercard. paypal is “unfreezing” donations. now I'm confused.

      • http://heheheheheheheeheheheehehe.com/ tao

  • cooltop

    ummmmmmmmm…

    remember how paypal stopped sending donations made to wikileaks

    remember how there's like a massive unified entity trying to 'mute'/'stop' wikileaks

    it's an organization/website

    • http://heheheheheheheeheheheehehe.com/ tao

      what do you think about it…

      • http://twitter.com/t_baugh Travis Baugh

        seems like a good idea but actually boring in its realization

      • http://twitter.com/moysesnyc mmm

        yet it appears as though they are 're-engineering improvements' on the site to make it both 'more secure' and 'more user-friendly'

      • http://twitter.com/t_baugh Travis Baugh

        I don't even get where you can see the stuff they're “leaking,” should be more accessible/easy to figure out

      • http://twitter.com/t_baugh Travis Baugh

        there should be a big flashing .gif

      • http://twitter.com/moysesnyc mmm

        idk, they won awards

      • http://twitter.com/t_baugh Travis Baugh

        I don't think they're actually doing anything I think it's all a scam so Julian Assange/Joan Didion can go around raping people and getting the internet to sue PayPal over it

      • http://twitter.com/moysesnyc mmm

        u should totes submit this info to their electronic drop box when it reopens in the near future

      • http://heheheheheheheeheheheehehe.com/ tao

        i feel like there's been a major backlash since the awards

      • http://heheheheheheheeheheheehehe.com/ tao

        seems exciting

    I can't wait for Tao's next article so that I can leech on to his relative fame by being one of the 30+ requisite attention-seeking comments that swarm below every single time he writes anything on here. And I really hope this comment comes off as super smart/funny/hip/witty/clever/ironic, 'cause that would make me feel good about being a not-so-good writer who writes for a not-so-good website.

      you seem so chill in the movies

      what is relative fame vs real fame, indiana jones you are a smart professor and you have stumped me with your mind games

  • http://tomhankssuperfan.blogspot.com megan boyle

    when i see the 'personal appeal' banner ad things on wikipedia i think 'wikileaks'

    • http://heheheheheheheeheheheehehe.com/ tao

      does anyone know if it's a part of wikipedia…i feel like i honestly don't get it…

      • http://twitter.com/t_baugh Travis Baugh

        wiki is just the name for a site that allows for creation and editing of pages for the site through the web browser rather than going through other processes. “wiki” just refers to the type of software that powers “wiki” pages. they are not related other than using “wiki” software…

      • http://heheheheheheheeheheheehehe.com/ tao

        honestly seems confusing…more confusing now maybe…

    i have to pee.

    • http://heheheheheheheeheheheehehe.com/ tao

      what…

  • Zella

    I am confused too. I'm glad that I'm not the only one, Tao.
    I think now I want to die my hair white and do crazy shit maybe.
    Seems like that's what Wikileaks is about maybe.

    is it wikileaks?

  • http://twitter.com/MissKimball misskimball

    it's just a successful troll
    assange means 'towards monkey' in french. not sure how jimmy wales fits in, wales – whales – water – water under bridges? on the surface they seem to be fighting over the word 'wiki' but it's non-copyrightable, it's just mexican for 'fish'. they both look like er, libertines. maybe the money is for a new collaborative site 'pedoleaks'

    @indiana jones hope this makes you feel good bro

    Isn't it sooo funny how we don't know anything that's happening outside the city? Cuz politics is sooo dumb. D'ya know what I mean? We're so totally awesome. Let's go to a diner. That's all the context we need.

        feel like wikileaks is international…

  • http://libraryofdust.blogspot.com Giles

    Wikileaks has made listening to Radio 4 in the morning 100% less depressing. It is basically a political gossip-machine, seeemingly causing no actual threats to “national security” or whatever, just making public figures really embarrassed.

  • http://twitter.com/straponheart Evan Hatch

    This seems what Hipster Runoff might be like if it was actually written by Tao like dumbasses think it is.
