Stone Gnome

Adrian Lamo, the hacker's hacker, single handedly brought down the source of the infamous Crazyhorse video that showed U.S. helicopter troops killing civilians, including two Reuters employees and some kids, in Baghdad on July 12, 2007. Lamo turned in 22-year old U.S. military analyst Bradley Manning, the alleged source of the classified Crazyhorse (aka "Collateral Murder") video and hundreds of other documents he allegedly sent to WikiLeaks.

Manning took a chance and shouted DIAJA&dagger in a room full of spooks. Brave soul, or a damn fool. Either way, his call.

Lamo, on the other hand, appears to have been in the game for long, slow, personal strokes. Enjoy the phame, luser.

In Rowlingesque Bog Latin, "Lux!", but in English (heh), "Broad Daylight!" Works more or less like throwing cold H2O on the wicked witch of the West, but beware — every crowd of Munchkins has its Stone Gnome.
