However, you can make it difficult for this guy to go on the attack.

"this guy"? Do you know anything about /b/ and anonymous. This is not one person a raid can have anything from 10 to 10,000 people. And you can't stop them because although most are amateurs if they get organised the good ones come to the fore and they are some of the best hackers on the planet. Hell the youtube staff almost certainly contains /b/tards. However the likelihood of 4chan actually pulling an individual attack off is low due to the disorganised nature of anonymous, nothing really happens unless it it made official on ED.

The point is the lulz. It is done because it is funny. Sure Project Chanology was done for idealogical reasons but the majority of Anon's activities are done for fun. Take the Habbo raid for example, it generated memes, lulz, /b/lackup and you now get instantly banned if you create a black character with an afro and a suit.

Wow ATS really doesn't seem to know anything about Anon. 4chan and Anon cannot just be summed up like that or with any other base description. Anon is the sum of everyone and every view point. We are all part of Anonymous, it is the gathering of all the different types hate, racism, sexism, prejudice, kindness, benevolence and all the others even those that are direct opposites of each other.
It is where a white supremacist and a human rights activist can be together without worries because nothing matters. Its really hard to describe. It is everything that we are as a species are, and because of what we are as a species it is the worst parts that come to the fore.. Yes there are parts of 4chan that are just nerds with nothing better to do, but the same can be said for ATS and all other sites. You also have the people that are their for laughs, trolling, raids etc. There are in Anon and 4chan those that think Project Chanology was a great idea and should be furthered for the betterment of humanity, and those who think it should be furthered for the lulz. There are also those that think that Project Chanology was a pathetic and that those involved were sad idiots. Anon contains all sorts of people from those that are intellectuals to those that aren't even literate. You can't just generalise something like Anonymous like that just like you can't understand it from one trip to /b/ like so many people think they can. If you go their one time almost certainly all you will see is troll threads and spam, you have to look deeper, look for the "epic threads" to truly get the culture and feeling down there and yes by looking deeper you will find all sorts of filth but that is because the members of humanity. /b/ itself uses the quote "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy" to describe itself, because that is the face it likes to show to the world. It wants to be regarded as the bad guys because it makes it easier for them to do what they want to do.

Well I am going to stop here as I am starting to repeat myself and I must be boring you guys. Plus I have just broken rules 1 & 2 soooo badly.

Thank you for that. You did a much better job in describing it than I ever could have.

Does anyone actually follow the rules anymore?

Most of what has been written here seems to be directed at what /b/ has not been in over 2 years. After a certain point, you realize the cancer, even if it was being spammed at the beginning, is no longer trolling but all that is left.

Slightly off topic but.....
This would be a good place once again to say thanks to our Mod's and Admin here. With their what may seem strict t&c policy that is enforced very well they have managed to keep the spam out of ATS, unlike other forums that are being over run with chanf**s at the moment.
Well done


As its been said these people are mostly immature who need to get out more. Sure some good may come from it but the bad outshines it.
Plus meme is such a stupid word.

Most of the point of 4chan is that it is largely unmoderated mess. That's what's fun. Well part of it.

Rules 1&2 only apply during raids.Originally it was to keep /b/ from being identified as the source of the raid, but it was also used to keep out 13 year olds who thought /b/ was some super secret internet club that could bring any world government down in 5 seconds flat. At one point anon was VERY powerful, enough to garner media attention and to go as far as manipulating google search suggestions. These days they are mostly comprised of teenagers wanting to be cool and tough on the internet. Almost every thread you will now see falls into one of these categories.

Yeah i agree, i mean it can fun fun for about 5 minutes, but its creeping more and more into other forums where people are trying to at least be half serious. I dont think its a concious attempt by the more militant section to 'reclaim the web'. its more just randoms being random.
It gets old quickly is all.

iirc, 4chan has banned raids, & Insurgen.info, 711chan's /i/, 888chan's /i/ are all down. That leaves F/i/ghting the man, PARTYVAN.
