Pants full of macaroni!!: DubtodaIll: FTA: Anonymous and various explicitly anti-USAI wasn't under the impression that Anon was necessarily anti-USA just anti-asshat. Though I could be wrong.These days it's pretty hard to tell the difference.
dragonchild: you're really just an unpaid marketing arm for cybersecurity companies.
Headso: More like deferred payment, after they grow up and move out of mom's basement they can get jobs at those companies.
dragonchild: Dear Anonymous:I work in tech support for a CDN. I don't know what sort of visions these "hacktavists" get about causing billions of dollars in damage, causing chaos in the streets or creating a real-life version of Fight Club or V for Vendetta. Whatever hard-ons they're getting about this mischief, the true extent of their damage is giving me and my colleagues a few more stressful tickets to add to our caseload. I've been involved in fending off attacks that made the news, but as far as I'm concerned, an Anonymous attack = giving one miserable Farker a headache as he works in a home office. It's the Internet equivalent of vomiting on a restaurant floor and leaving it for some poor schmuck to clean up. That's not going to make the history books, folks. Besides, if you're not a nuisance, you're just job security. In fact, since the product team came out with a new security package the guys over in Sales love you assholes.So think about that. Next time you attack a major website, you're really just an unpaid marketing arm for cybersecurity companies.
neversubmit: Anonymous is whoever wants to be Anonymous, we could all say we are Anonymous.News: Today Anonymous promises to post on fark.com
dragonchild: So think about that. Next time you attack a major website, you're really just an unpaid marketing arm for cybersecurity companies.
Lehk: >implying hackers and virus writers aren't being paid by the security companies.
germ78: But no, they're a bunch of weenie script kiddies who think a DDOS is the height of hacking prowess.
HotWingConspiracy: This is like that time they took control of the Mars Rover.
