Anonymous: You’re Doing It Wrong

I suffered through this entire video:

How hard is it to run a manifesto through a speech synthesizer and upload it to YouTube? Even to obscure the account that delivered the video?

It’s bad enough to place yourself on a level with the Chief Executive, and order him about. What is worse will be when he gaffs you right off. Are you really going to try the Stratfor treatment? In a way, your feckless orders are as bad as campaign promises, Anonymous. The suspicion is that there won’t be any delivery.

How about applying your talent in a Tea Party mode? Let’s flog the GOP into something useful. Hiding behind opaque pointers is all fun and games on Slashdot; it’s not how adults set about driving improvement.

    I agree…which is why I always use my name when I post a comment.  If you can’t stand up for what you say…then what you say is useless.

    I’d be a lot more impressed with Anonymous if the Drug Cartels hadn’t made them scream like little girls and back off their “war” … on the Drug Cartels.

    That took what?  2 days?  1 day?

    Yeah.  And these guys think the NSA isn’t already on to them and know everything about them?

    Good luck with that.

    Sheesh. “and if you don’t follow our (anticonstitutional) orders, we’re going to throw ourselves on the floor and we the people will hold our breath and then you’re gonna really be sorry!”

    And Bradley Manning is a weird little piss ant who should not have been trusted with a gym locker combination.

    I was sad to see them running up charges on their stolen credit card information, putting the money in the coffers of the non-profits.  This doesn’t help anybody.  The non-profits don’t want stolen money, and the reversals only add to the administrative costs as well.  

    Publishing  documents that illuistrate the level of corruption and deception that the governments use against their people is a noble endeavor, but using financial blackmail only serves to dilute their message.

    Anonymous doesn’t actually give a damn about anything other than their own amusement. They just use this stuff as an excuse. When they’re not hacking and stealing credit card numbers they’re busy trolling each other on 4chan. It’s all about the lulz for them.

    It may well be that the true Scotsmen of Anonymous were not behind this particular outing.

    Slashdot. Where most commenters seem to fall into two categories: The pugnaciously ignorant and the aggressively stupid.

    I have never backed off anything & I’m not worried about the NSA or any other government agency. I already have clearance to all their systems. We run the internet not governments. We can break huge companies, cartels (who released our brother btw) & nations. Open your eyes the biggest threat to the US government right now is Anonymous.

    Anonymous is the reason for PIPA, SOPA & several tidbits in the NDAA. If we weren’t such a threat to their corrupt system they wouldn’t spend so much money to stop us. Take a look at the totals for cyber defense this year. Notice how they are now expanding spending in this area by a few thousand %. That’s not because of the tea baggers either.

    This is the future and you are all living in the past. If you think Anonymous is just a bunch of snot nosed kids drinking Monster & listening to Dub Step in the parents basement you’re wrong. Anonymous is everywhere. You see Anons everyday and don’t even know it. That’s what scares you isn’t it? The fact that you don’t know who Anonymous is. You have no face to hate. Here’s the thing. Anonymous doesn’t discriminate. If you are doing something wrong you had better worry about Anonymous because Anonymous is coming!

    So sit there in you little chairs and bitch about how this faceless bunch of cowards won’t stand behind their words. Challenge Anonymous if you so desire but if you get on their radar they will bring you down just like they made every other person, corporation, movement, or nation that has tried to stop them in their pursuit of justice & the preservation of human rights.
