    How do you feel about that, is it really a political action organization or a bunch of assholes looking to troll the biggest and baddest on the block?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    They are trolling. I doubt that they vote in large numbers.

    I don't really think of Anon as a political organisation, but I think that it is changing. People are pretty damned lazy about getting to the polls or actually doing anything other than armchair complaints about political issues.
    Mass action from Anon pretty much requires that you sit around. All you need is net access and the ability to hide your IP. Most every person I know has this.
    While the mass action at the moment seems to be the will of a select few with the rest just going along for the ride, that could change in the future. Also, although there do seem to be abuses of power going on, it's not like that is any different from other political organisations.

    I think it's sad that newspaper editors cant read a dictionary. The point of "anonymous" is that it isn't an identity. More specifically it isn't a single tangible entity, so it can't be an identity for a hacker group, rather the hacker group used it to hide theirs.

    Who knows? Maybe they just have a lot of time on their hands.

    I do not know if Anonymous is as powerful as they claim to be but they have done a lot to bring attention to themselves. There is a lot of wrongdoing in our society that is going on by our government and the companies that write the laws in this country and I welcome anyone or any organization that attempts do help, no matter big or small.

    That's true, certainly project chanology and the great habbo raid were good causes, but unfortunately "Anonymous" is a blanket label and a lot of bad groups tend to use it. Sadly people only look at the worst side of things.

    The lack of a concrete identity also opens it up to counter intelligence, false flag ops, and agents provocateur. That happens irl anyways, anonymity just makes it really easy. That and some people just occasionally like to post flashing gigs on epilepsy forums.

    Whoever they are I like what theyre doing... dont call them assholes, the way I see it they will or may already be the modern freedom fighters... In the last decade weve seen countless attacks on various websites made by ruthless government regimes, China, Russia, and some Arab dictatorships targeting Activist organizations and rival government websites... Go Anonymous!
