Way to ignore all the questions.


No, the media/online war against ISIS is very real. Anonymous isn't the only organization trying to cripple their online media outlets. Its a joint effort, its just that Anonymous is spearheading it all.

This is common knowledge. So there are people out there that think its important enough to do. And I agree with them.

Anonymous may slightly slow isis recruitment but in no way are they just going to dissolve because of it, that's just wishful thinking.

Complete BS. They can just create a new account post a message and the whole MSM will pick it up.


But let's say you are right, how soon are we going to see ISIS give up because of this? How soon will we see ISIS dissapear from the media?



Ive read up on Anonymous and how they have NSA type abilities when it comes to the internet. Meaning, planting a virus on your machine using some backdoor means that actually records you while you're sitting there at the computer doing your thing. Ive heard a lot of horror stories about Anonymous. If you're someone who deals with computers and websites a lot, they are THE group that you don't want against you. They are the ISIS of cyber space so to speak. They themselves are semi terrorists that come off as trying to sound like Robin Hood at times.

I wouldn't put anything against them. They are capable of lot when it comes to these things.

I very much doubt that IS have the stamina or the infrastructure to win out against massed, and repeated takedowns of their content and sites. Remember, hackers know that people can put up a new site in moments, but the hackers that are a part of Anonymous have, in some cases, hacked the systems of governments and intelligence agencies.

We are not talking about some bunch of script kiddies here. We are talking about internet ninjas on steroids, and infused with Godzilla DNA. I would be very surprised if they have not thrown some sort of tripwire like virus code down the wires, to alert them when content appears, so that they can take it down as it arrives. IS may number in the tens of thousands or more in terms of ground strength and strength of arms, but on the internet? Give me a break. They are going to get plastered all up and down cyberspace. In fact, I would have thought that it will cause some of their webheads to make frustration related errors, enough perhaps to let their location data slip.

There is no rage, like nerd rage!

Again you ignore my arguments.

You do know that cyberspace is not the real world and that the two worlds are very different, and one of them is real?

They are not a media group. They are a fighting force that has occupied pieces of Iraq and Syria. They don't care about anonymous because they are not relevant.

Anonymous is known for doing some sick things virus wise. A backdoor that puts a recorder on your computer that streams the room your computer is in on one of their monitors. I heard of another virus that loads literally a harddrive's worth of child porn onto your computer and then system locks your computer with a protected password and the authorities are alerted.

And yeah, you're right. I'm sure that Anonymous knows within seconds when ISIS has a new account up. As you said there, ISIS doesn't have the stamina to battle a group like Anonymous through cyber space.

What happens in cyber space can very much effect you "in the real world".

They don't have to battle anonymous. They are not internet trolls. They are a fighting force on the ground in the middle east. The MSM will keep reporting on them and everything they post on the internet through whatever proxy.

You have things so twisted it is not even funny.

And you downplaying what Anonymous is capable of is also funny.

Furthermore, you downplaying that Cyber Space doesn't effect people "in the real world" is funny as well. People rely on the internet. Its where tons of people pay bills...shop....and many many other things. How about having your identity stolen online? Think that wouldn't effect someone? Or how about having your Credit Card stolen online. Or how about being backdoored and having your $2000 computer fried? How about having your privacy invaded via remote backdoor video? Recording everything you do and say inside of your computer room in real time and you not knowing it? Think these things won't effect someone? Yeah, you can say something like "Don't put your information online like that, its stupid" - But the fact of the matter is that people do it. Millions upon millions do it.

So its you that has things twisted.

And how this effects ISIS? Are you dense? LOL. The campaign is to hamstring their media outlets and online recruiting efforts and its been discussed since the first post here. Reading comprehension is your friend.

Nope, its just a few things that they are capable of. It was an example of their online prowess.

Honestly, you're beginning to sound like an ISIS apologist. You sicken me.

Dude, this is moronic. How is this going to affect an ISIS fighter on the battlefield in Iraq? I mean really, you thought about it and this is what you come up with?




Honestly, you're beginning to sound like an ISIS apologist. You sicken me.


I'm beginning to think you are completely incapable of making any correct observation.




And how this effects ISIS? Are you dense? LOL. The campaign is to hamstring their media outlets and online recruiting efforts and its been discussed since the first post here. Reading comprehension is your friend.


And like I said, it is BS. They will still post whatever message they want outthere and the whole MSM will pick up on it and the MSM will keep reporting on them anyway. People with that mindset will still feel compelled to join them and as long as they are being backed by powerful and wealthy sources they are not going to fade away over some hacked accounts.

It was an example of how Cyber Space can effect someone in real time because apparently, that concept escapes you. I didn't mention ISIS in that example did I? Again, reading comprehension is your friend.
