    They don't have anything to do with this. The point was, we're not going to run and hide from a threat. And was living in a city, and a 'savvy' hacker will have a lot more trouble living like Osama did, with no internet/TV/phone and only some playboys for entertainment. I dont' think Anon will be tracked down until they prove to be more than a nusience.

    What government is out of control? Libya's? Because they have no freedom of speech? Saudi Arabia because they don't allow alcohol? America, because our govt is trying to control our health care? America's changes every 4 or 8 years at least.

    Wasn't the US going to start building a gigantic supercomputing center somewhere in the eastern states (Maryland I think). If they've got something similar to this but old, anon is completely screwed. A few thousand teraflops of computing power will crack through any encryption or security pretty quickly just by bruteforce. Unless you can filter out every IP address in the US (which is sort of hard when the government is basically it's own ISP) you aren't going to last very long. You can turn off your phone's, computers, etc. But they can still track you. Please be careful with who you threaten anon.
     
  3. Do you guy's know who the real criminal's are? I doubt it.

    The American government, British government ect. Commit more crimes than all the other so called criminals and terrorist put together.

    911, the war on Afghanistan/Iraq. The C.I.A. are known to bring drugs into countries just to name a few. Not to mention the attacks on Libya, are illegal and unconstitutional.

    How the hell can you defend Governments, Politician's or corporation's. They have been screwing you for years and killing millions of people along the way.

    I really hope that they know what they are doing.... cause if the OTAN / NATO are able to find them, some "heads" are going to roll.

    Apostrophes with an 's' after nouns are used to denote possession, e.g. the boy's hat, except in the case where you're abbreviating, such as "he's" for "he is".

    If you just want to refer to something in the plural, an apostrophe is not needed. e.g the mongooses attacked the cobra

    Anonymous doesn't steal anything. Good job commenting with no understanding of anonymous.

    Wrong! They have stolen data that they do not rightfully have access to.

    God I sense a **** ton of jealousy here lol Some anons might be bad eggs and cocky as **** but I for one agree that sometimes, you gotta **** **** up to get people to wake up and stop acting like corrupt douche bags within government and corporations.

    Someone mentioned that it wouldn't take a super computer long to work through the encryption. Have you ever heard of 2048 bit encryption? Currently it is impractical to try to decipher 128 bit encryption no mater what the computer is. I'm sure Anon is using the best they can get and I can't ever imagine 2048 bit encryption getting hacked in my life time.

    I personally find it sick the our government can do things with our tax dollars that we don't know about. When Anon kills someone, then call them a terrorist. Until then, shut up and stop trying screw everyone over, NATO. The average Joe has no privacy anymore, they could set a camera out side my house and monitor me. The government can look at everything I'm doing with out me even knowing it or getting a warrant (check patroit act). Then, when someone says screw that, they are labeled as criminals. I've always believed that nothing will change unless people are willing to die for it. Basement dwellers or not( I really know nothing about Anon's personal life) I think they are willing to make that sacrifice.

    Oh the patriot act. Ruining any possible security a US citizen could have. I lost all respect for obama when he extended it.

    Well...yRaz... think about this... if Anon were to hack the govt and prove that the govt is not secure it almost definitely would affect the way we perceive the govt's control and ability to function. If we lose faith in that then it's a short step to a lower credit rating on govt bonds. A lower credit rating would cause interest rates to rise (among other things) and rising interest rates is the last thing we need while trying to recover from a recession. So in your mind 'killing someone' is the end all evil deed, but our last recession (millions of jobs lost) was caused by lower credit ratings on mortgage securities, even ones backed by the govt. This isn't even considering events like securities such as swaps and futures changing value over night and causing huge companies to go under.

    In other news... 3 Anon members were arrested for the Sony hack.

    "Hey Mom, we're out of Chips"

    "so dude, NATO get back to us yet?"

    Creating jobs isn't what this thread is about. However, I'd be more than happy to humor you. Our jobs problem comes from the corporate heads learning that by making their current empolyees work harder they can higher less of them. I'm getting tired of all these "patriots" saying we need to lower taxes for the richest people on earth to create jobs. What people don't understand is they are already making ludicrous amounts of money and will still make ungodly amounts of money no matter how high taxes are. But, you know, taking money away from my kids education and taking away my medicare are all important things too. You want to create more jobs? Educate people, make public works projects, and create government jobs. Wait, nevermind, laying off state employees and teachers is the perfect way to go about creating jobs. I guess I have to make that sacrifice if my favorite CEO is going to bring home $400m this year. I'm only going to make about $18,000 this year between washing dishes and computer jobs on the side. I work ~50 hours a week and go to school full time year round and that takes another 30 hours a week. I'd like to see them do what I do and take their money away instead of the other way around.

    If the private sector isn't going to create jobs then I say raise taxes and let the government do the job creation. I'd like to take a step back for a second, actually, 11 years back to the origin of the bush tax cuts. Those cuts were supposed to help the economy, right? Well, 11 years later(and that is plenty of time to see if something worked) we have yet to see results. Sorry, lowering taxes doesn't not have any effect on creating jobs. We have the last 11 years as evidence to that. BTW, that largest tax cut in history happened under the Obama administration. Liberal/Democratic president my ****.
     
  22. Your arguement is ad hominem and pointless. The previous poster makes a valid point.
    Govenment is, at best, a necessary evil.
     
  23. Remember when they just used to sign up for Habbo Hotel as black men in suits with afros and blockade swimming pools?

    I wonder if any of the script kiddies involved with the nowadays remember. I doubt it.
     
  24. Anonymous is getting ridiculous, they are going way over the edge. What is their true purpose? To unlock secrets that may be paramount for national security for many countries? They really need to understand that sometimes secrets are secrets. Seriously, use those hacking skills for the greater good.
