    Future targets:

    Police department in Bear Creek, Texas

    Big Jim's Helicopter Tours in Kodiak, Alaska

    Wilson's Hardware in Yazoo, Mississippi.

    The "DL" second phone of the Albanian ambassador in Washington DC.

    Eunice May Edelweiss, a 90 year old retiree in Syracuse. New York.

    They are undecided whether they will DDoS the blog of "Euripides", who is known for his vocal disdain of My Little Pony.

    Does that mean Anonymous is made up of bronies and he is a parasprite?

    Do not knock it to you try it.

    In my defense, I was a MLP fan from when the second episode first aired - all of those other poses can go get bent…

    If you're going to be claiming all this Pony Cred, I trust you're referring to the second episode of the OG series back in the 1980s?
  6. If these morons, who will make the Internet a living hell of security features do anything on September 11th, I'll hunt them down myself. If any of those so called hackers think they are anything , other than a 21st century criminal, they are amazingly ignorant. I'm sure they would love people to post all their dirty little secrets. If I was the government that's what I would do, just post everything, address, bills, all emails, put pictures up, everything, then I would throw them in a prison in turkey. They will make the Internet an impossible mess, the governments are going to create ways to track everything, nothing will go unchecked, just because a bunch of communists think they know how the world should be run, from their mommies basement no less.

    A man who does not take responsibility for his actions, is no man at all. Your little children playing a game that you won't win, and you'll bring all of us down with you.

    SERIOUSLY ANONYMOUS.
    You aren't helping anyone. You are going to make things for us and on the internet MUCH, MUCH worse if you keep this up...
    And SERIOUSLY GOVERNMENT.
    ITS NOT THAT HARD. You have nearly UNLIMITED resources. You waste money on other stupid stuff, so why not use money for stuff that actually poses a threat?

    That is what is seriously annoying me. This whole Anon thing is going to have repercussions resulting in more stringent internet regulation and lord knows who else. I would much rather have to endure that in return for proof of how Goldman Sachs screwed over our economy, or shady dealing at the S&C, rather than some sex e-mails from the sheriff of BFE, Texas.

    I was with you till this point. They aren't communists. While yes, they are trying to show how the world should be run, they are showing that it should be free, where the simple man doesn't get screwed over by big brother and big companies. I agree with Anon's ideas, what I don't agree with are their actions. I don't think they are very tactful or even tasteful in their attacks.
    Like with the sherrif's office. If I were apart of Anon, and I was involved (which I wouldn't be because I would have found no point behind something as small as this) I would have released the emails and the names...that's it. No need for their address, phone number, SS#, or anything else. All the public needs to know is "what's going on" and "who's behind it." All other info is irrelevant.

    Typical revolutionist teenager attitudes... they think everything they do helps everyone and act like saviors after screwing everyone over. I'm not for corrupt corporations or governments, but I'm even less interested in seeing another tier of self-righteous morons telling people what to do.

    Project Mayhem, is this straight from Fight Club? Guess Tyler Durden has now joined forces with Anonymous.

    99% chance :(
  17. Its wonderful that our government shares information with reporters such as computer world but not with the rest of the industry. Where is the advisory NCCIC, DHS, NCSD? Advanced warning only to the media is BS.
  18. question...

    what if anonymous was something ochestred by some ppl with some agenda?

    fear is a nice manipulation tool don't you think.

    lets blindly trust thou who is leading us.......?

    <let us control your internet...believe me you will be safer...*giggle*>
