QR – Cure – Quizzing Realms – 208

The word itself is a portmanteau of two different words. The kind of people this word describes actually took down a website, its ISP and DNS provider, just because the website was providing a security tool that would cause spammers to delete email addresses of those who joined a community for anti-spamming, and didn’t want to receive any more spam mails!

These people have assumed new ‘significance’ after MasterCard, PayPal and Amazon refused services to WikiLeaks. What one word describes these people?
