WikiLeaks (temporary?) out of business

At the moment WikiLeaks is not accepting new submissions due to re-engineering improvements the site to make it both more secure and more user-friendly. Since WikiLeaks is not currently accepting submissions during the re-engineering, they have also temporarily closed their online chat support for how to make a submission.

Our opinion: If WikiLeaks wants to remain a believable news source it has to remove the Homepage ad, featuring Julian Assange asking the public 'to keep us stong'. Who is 'us' in the ad ? It is not clear any more if donations are used to help finance the defence of Assange's personal court case, or the further development of WikiLeaks as a news site.
