As a Telecom Project Manager, I love the fear created by Anonymous and groups like it.  Multiple infrastructure upgrades to  communications backhauls used by the big boys. Redundant MTSO's, TDM/MSN router upgrades/swapouts.  ALU is making a fortune from it. Keep it up!  Fight the system!

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.

DubtodaIll: FTA: Anonymous and various explicitly anti-USA

I 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.
