The third paragraph sounds awkward to me, and I couldn't figure out anything to do about it. Could somebody fix that, please? Kyt (talk) 03:15, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Had a crack, not sure its any less awkward, but it is more balanced Plm-qaz snr (talk) 10:21, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

:This could be Randall's criticism of Wikileaks for betraying the United States Government. Such a criticism would imply that Wikileaks gains allies, but needs betrayal and secrets in order to continue working. Randall could be implying that Wikileaks can only survive by betraying its supporters, as total declassification of the Government would render them useless. Equally, it could be just for laffs or a reflection on the risks of allying with a dispassionate organisation with a single agenda that could be as readily used against you as against its current target of the government. 

I don't think it is a crack. The students making a nuisance of themselves in the Johnson era turned out to be heroic. Who denies that, these days?

ummm australianism may have been confusing "Had a crack" was an abbreviation of "i had a crack at it" meaning "i have had a go at fixing the third paragraph". No reference to cracks in the content or fracturing generally Plm-qaz snr (talk) 11:59, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

It's a paradox though and a joke in what Wikileaks does (in the comic.) Currently Julian Assange is being "held hostage" by the British government over a Swedish case the Swedes have no interest in. The FBI (ostensibly) unmasked the culprits in Anonymous' DDoS of the US government. Wikileaks have never given identities away. Shoddy security has seen it hacked though.

Who knows what else went on with heartbleed and the like. It is a sack of shit all around.
