With #shiptogaza in mind I will put this post in English. The first ever on this blog.
There are important stratagies applied in online warfare, and as part of the Telecomix organisation I feel it important to inform about this. First of all it’s not always optimal to ddos the government servers to stop them, since it can cause problems for the civil people who need to get to them servers. This happened in the instance with the Iran election last year. Telecomix twittered out a plead for people not to DDOS. We are doing this for the people, not against the governments.
Now we plead for people to clean up the #shiptogaza and #flotilla tags. Why? Well it’s simple. The more the hashtags are spammed with ”unimportant” nonsense the less chance there is for the important information to get through. Wield your weapon wisely young padwan.
Warfare instructions is a short description and explanation of the simple rules of how one should conduct online warfare.
How to wield the weapon of Twitter (eng) is what is important in the cases above.
Read it, spread it, and most of all think about it
