    "Idle hands are the devil's tools." Other cultures have similar sayings. Basically, when people are not busy working (or learning), they find themselves more likely to cause mischief. Nothing new here.

    Wrong forum to say this, but listen to me, all you call yourselves Anonymous!

    Forget about "V for Vendetta". Now, take a history lesson from someone who's not of the first world and grew up in a communist paradise [notmysock.org].

    Guy Fawkes did British revolutionaries a complete disservice. First up, he was a religious nutjob who wanted to kill a king for religious intolerance. The end result of which was that finally the king had a real good & proper reason to hunt down the catholics. The ordinary catholics ended up in a long drawn struggle and bore most of the collateral damage out of the actions of an anarchistic commune. Those thirteen proved to be as bad for the catholics as the original.

    With the new "Guy Fawkes" vigilantes are similarly giving ammunition to the government to grab control of the internet, choke down every protest fair or otherwise. You assholes aren't fighting authority, you're just the reason giving their oppression legitimacy in the eyes of the people who don't want to be accidentally your targets for the lulz.

    And here's some advice from my dad, "If you really want to be a rebel, live for the rebellion, don't die for it". Now, if you want to be a martyr instead ... don't take me down with you.

    You see, Anonymous and their supporters will accept the "Anyone can be Anonymous" position only when it's in their favor -- for example when law enforcement makes a public effort to arrest them, then no voice represents Anonymous, Anonymous is anyone. But when a hack occurs that's morally nebulous to a majority of people, out comes the ablative armor of a unified voice of denial.

    In a thread about suspected Anonymous members being arrested your post would be +5 Insightful. But here you get down modded because their supporters deem this information counter productive to their damage control efforts. They can't have it both ways and have reasonable people believe them.
