That said, it seems this is a hegemony that seems to be (with
a few exceptions, like Ricardo & co.) largely successful 
in deterring hactivists - or at least forcing them to keep a low profile, which
as Ricardo pointed out, can be counterproductive. Some hactivists may of course 
philosophically prefer anonymity anyway, as others have suggested on this thread. 
My personal opinion is that both high and low profile approaches are valid.
But perhaps it would be useful to discuss ideas for increasing the 
potential - and profile - for using computers and networks as political tools 
without putting such a disproporionate risk on the individuals with technical 
skills who are ultimately in the hot seat?
