Re: Ransom DDoS episode... not only did that dude mispronounce technology names (indicating lack of technical knowledge), he used the phrase “or their [law enforcement counterparts] in other civilized countries”. In saying this, he effectively implies that hackers who write in broken English are savages from uncivilized countries. The implicit racial connotations in making a statement like that are seriously offensive (equating being ‘civilized’ with speaking English well). Really surprising and disappointing.
