Sure lulzsec will be used as reasons for censorship by governments/corporations. But I think lulzsec was a response to governments trying to crack down on net neutrality, not the other way around.

Without them, these pro-censorhip persons would still be using CP, media pirating, etc as reasons to crack down on the internet regardless if lulzsec existed. Anything opposing them will be used as more reasons to try to brainwash others why 'censorship' of the internet is necessary.

Bitcoin seems to have birthed along with wikileaks lulzsec etc, as unique solutions/developments to push towards a neutral net and free world

Here's yet another communiqué from the resistance.  It's clear to me that money and payments are one of the primary battlegrounds in this struggle.

What the FBI needs to learn is that there is a vast difference between adding one's voice to a chorus and digital sit-in with Low Orbit Ion Cannon, and controlling a large botnet of infected computers. And yet both of these are punishable with exactly the same fine and sentence.
In addition to this horrific law enforcement incompetence, PayPal continues to withhold funds from WikiLeaks, a beacon of truth in these dark times. By simply standing up for ourselves and uniting the people, PayPal still sees it fit to wash its hands of any blame, and instead encourages and assists law enforcement to hunt down participants in the AntiSec movement.
Quite simply, we, the people, are disgusted with these injustices. We will not sit down and let ourselves be trampled upon by any corporation or government. We are not scared of you, and that is something for you to be scared of. We are not the terrorists here: you are.

We encourage anyone using PayPal to immediately close their accounts and consider an alternative. The first step to being truly free is not putting one's trust into a company that freezes accounts when it feels like, or when it is pressured by the U.S. government. PayPal's willingness to fold to legislation should be proof enough that they don't deserve the customers they get. They do not deserve your business, and they do not deserve your respect.
