    What is this group called "Anonymous"?

    I was browsing around the web watching all the pro-gun and anti-gun videos and came across this group called Anonymous. This can't be real. Looks like a publicity stunt.

    They are very real.

    They took down the computers for the westboro baptists church recently. They are anti-gun control.

    Jean, I came across this on youtube. There are other videos too. They claim to be some kind of "hacktivist" group.

    Some of their messages are good, some bad. It is their methods that are definitely poorly chosen.

    I applaud the messages about Westboro and their anti-gun-control sentiments, but many others are nuttier than squirrel turds.

    Careful, folks. "The enemy of your enemy is not necessarily your friend." The next target of their hacking could be something you like that rubbed them the wrong way.

    It may not be popular in some circles right now but when talking about issues of supporting constitutional rights you shouldn't have to remain anonymous.

    Anonymous is not any formal organization and there are some that are anti-gun and some pro-2nd amendment. There are some liberal leaning and some conservative leaning. They are loose knit but most enjoy a little chaos, especially if envolves a little irony. Any one of the thousands of people who have visited any of the "chan" boards can claim to be a part of "Anonymous" most are no more than children in highschool or college. That wiki article is mostly acurrate. There are people in anonymous who do some "hackdivism", but there are others who bring you the stupid cute cat pictures. The banner of "Anonymous" is a lot more broad than the media or the Government use of the term.

    These guys hide behind firewalls because IIRC they have been known to go after Governments also

    I just came back from Home Depot where the "computerized" paint matching machine couldn't match the same color it created last time, and the "computerized" checkout wouldn't scan the few items I was trying to buy. I'm about ready for the world's computers to dump and give mankind a heavy slap of reality.
