“There’s nothing stopping them. They feel like they have the right to do anything they want to anyone who gets in their way.”
Jennifer Emick, describing the online savagery she’s experienced since exposing “Anonymous”

    It’s a succinct explanation of the GIFT. Anonimity+Joe Normal=Compleate A**.

    I didin’t know who Jennifer Emmick was, so I followed the link you supplied.  Then I read through the comments to her post.  “She deserved it,” seems to be one of the favorite attitudes of those who commented.  I’m beginning to suspect that sociopath is the new normal.

    Emick’s story is getting into the tall grass, but that is what’s happening now, it’s getting bush-hogged down to expose the snakes.  While the pro-Anon commenters are clearly disturbed products of the “your truth is valid for you” self-esteem-centric public “education” system we currently endure, who feel entitled to do whatever they want because they want to do it, they aren’t an online army.  Not now that the FBI is involved.

    Whereas the real hackers in that motley crew might have, only a couple of years ago, been giving aid and comfort to the Kimberlin-Rauhauser Brigade terrorists, now they are either in custody or in hiding and keeping a low profile (except for pathetic disruption hacks of poorly secured sites, futile gestures in failing attempts to remain relevant). 

    The vermin will soon find themselves without a place to hide.

    That video should have been astounding but it wasn’t. One hopes that it will be available at sentencing.
