"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.
