Oh dear God, this is epic win...
Just watch... for the LULZ!
For those of you wondering what the hell this FOX news report is all about, first check out 4-Chan. (WARNING:
Although it's never stated directly on the Fox News stroy, The main web culprit of this den of "hackers" and "terrorists" is 4chan and its'
sister sites, 7chan, iichan, ko-chan, etc...
4chan is an imageboard that's spiraled waaaay
out of control into a beast that has its' own culture, language, and way of thinking. It's
kinda hard to explain what the site is actually all about, except maybe that's its' pure chaos binded by the the powers of anime, torrents, porn,
Who comes to 4chan and posts? Everyone from furry freaks, to camwhores, to college dropouts, to 16 year old girls, to weeaboos, and even Stephen
Colbert. (Supposedly) Everyone is automatically "anonymous" in thier posts unless they choose otherwise. So thus, someone posting images on 4chan
could be your neighbor, could be someone on the other coast, could be the FBI luring you in, or it could be President George Bush himself! Anon
posting gives people the freedom to speak their minds without being accountable for what they say. If your mind is like mine, then it is probably
filled with thoughts and opinions you would never say in real life or in a message board such as ATS. 4chan is a place to speak those thoughts
without being personally harrassed. (although you may be told to "Lurk moar.")
All that being said, I was ROTFL when I saw this Fox News report. Wow, talk about saying black is white! Internet hate machine... Secret websites...
hacker terrorists... buying a dog for internet security! Anyone who has been on 4chan long enough knows that everything reported on this story is
either false or skewed to give it a menacing air. While the chans have carried out website raids and internet pranks, none of thier actions have
physically hurt people or resulted in damage of real property.
"Oh no! They spoiled the ending of Harry Potter!"
"Oh no! they're crashing Habbo Hotel, dressed in afros and suits!"
"Oh no! they posted gay porn on some guy's myspace and his girlfriend dumped him!"
"Oh noes! A guy spammed his story about bombing football stadiums on a message board! Don't mess with football, kids!"
Yeah... So it's kind of like saying ATS is a website about overthrowing the goverment.
But interestingly enough, 4chan's members are savagely fighting back FOX. While individuals and companies cannot speak out or take actions against
media slanting, Anonymous is attacking the FOXDC message boards
with spam. The
/b/tard who had his face covered in the interview has been identified as Alex Wuori
his face pasted on 4chan's boards as a "betrayer." (The first rule of 4chan is to never talk about 4chan...) I expect more raids on everyone who
was in this newscast to follow.
And that's what has got me so proud to say that, yes, I love 4chan and I am anonymous. While the media can go and use its' yellow journalism
techniques to destroy anything it deems unworthy, it can't stop 4chan. Like a raging hurricane with a power over 9000, chan sites attack detractors
in ways that cannot even be concieved of by the victim. I think there needs to be moar chan raids on bigger and bigger targets. Epic wins that bring
accountability to major forces in our society today.
