After doing some more investigation on 'Anonymous', I came to the conclusion that they are a pathetic group of individuals. According to the BBC article I read, the group's attack on PayPal didn't even work. Lol...

'Anonymous' just wanted some attention. If you ignore them for long enough, they will eventually go back into internet oblivion. Lol...

They are pathetic.


They're defending the internet from corrupt government and censorship. In what way is that pathetic?

Why? Are you afraid that everyone will realize 'Anonymous' is a group of nobodies?

If they really had any type of online power, they would have become infamous many-many years ago.

They are just children seeking to gain from Assange's arrest.

They are a joke.

They ARE infamous. Have you just got here? Anonymous are notorious online. I'm surprised you can operate this message board, rookie

And it doesn't matter which payment processor Wikileaks uses anyway. None of them have enough power to stand agains whoever forced Paypal to freeze the account.
Maybe we should just avoid using the same services that Wikileaks does? Or maybe Wikileaks should stop relying on services that can be shut down?
This is a long known fact that Paypal has a habit of freezing legit accounts. So why the hell is Wikileaks still using Paypal?

It's not? Then why is the internet full of people with common goals who troll each other?

Because that's human nature. Not part of some hidden conspiracy.

Nobody is trolling anybody. We're correcting earlier poster on her/his grasp of Paypal and money transfers. Putting forward a view or idea that conflicts with somebody elses is not trolling.

Infact I'd say if anyone here is trolling it'd be you. You're completely off topic.

If you took a step back for a moment, you would have realized 'Anonymous' is not even news worthy. According to all the articles I have been reading, the group's efforts are that of school children playing with a computer mouse.

They are only seeking attention. You bought into their hype.

Interesting to hear the opinion from someone who has no concept of what they're talking about. Sadly I'm sure this guy is representative of a majority of American opinion.

Sure I do. After seeing Assange getting arrested this morning, 'Anonymous' saw an opportunity to gain online hacking notoriety. They are trying to ride the back of this morning's story, so they can gain some type of online recognition.

Hackers have online turf wars. One tries to out do the other, so they can gain some type of online prestige. What is funny is that they are not hackers, and the news community called this whole event a cyber attack.

'Anonymous' is a joke.

They've HAD attention. Have you never watched the news? They're in it all the time.

I personally couldn't care what their personal or collective interests are, what matters is they're defending the internet from government censorship.

You're attacking the messenger in every sense of the word. I've been part of their denial of service attacks in the past(where they attacked copyright enforcement companies).

Do you not realise that Anonymous have been notorious for years? They haven't just popped out of the wood work. You don't watch the news, have no knowledge of the Scientology saga? Anonymous is like an arm of 4chan. The busiest message board community on the internet. I don't think you understand the numbers involved. We're talking about millions of people here. Not a small group of kids toying around.

You're also spreading misinformation. Anonymos were attacking Paypal PRIOR to Assanges arrest. How can you say they're riding the back of an event that had yet to happen?.


Your irriational hatred and general lack of knowledge is shocking. I'm truelly baffled that you can work a computer

They are only using that slogan to gain online support. Its like a public relations slogan. In order to get support by 'the people', they are using the whole 'I am against censorship' slogan to win over bystanders. They only care about getting mentioned in online articles.

Its rather sad.

That doesn't mean anything. Unless you have a way to connect the two, I don't see how that is related to 'Anonymous'.

Even though the site is down for other reasons, I bet the group will come out and try to take credit.

I am not fooled, and I am not impressed.

Added: Just checked the site a few seconds ago, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong.

I must admit, at first I really didn't believe they would be able to take our internet from us. But now, and more and more, I am beginning to see the real agenda here. Remember folks, nothing in this world is what it seems. They want us to act the way we do, so they can restrict us even more. They want us to misbehave so they can punish us, it's so obvious. Oh my, to think if we treated our children like that, what would that make us?

I feel sorry for all of us. Sadly I am not a fighter and can't stand the idea of forcing change with a fight, I have little faith in believing good things come from fighting, as history has shown us again and again. We still have wars, slaves, poverty, etc... maybe even more than we've ever had. May the force be with us, I guess.

You know their motive as fact? How can you speak on their goals with such authority when you concede yourself that you were ignorant to their existence until this morning!

If it was purely about attention don't you think they'd have attacked Paypal and some of the larger web presences long ago? Instead of going after small web companies like AFACT and that ilk? They've been around for several years, why wait so long to attack big sites if their only goal in attention?

Your irrational distrust and hatred of a movement you've only just discovered existed, and have yet to research, is rather sad. That you think fighting against government censorship and terrorism is only done by people looking for attention, that's rather sad too.

Anonymous have been effective in slowing down Orwellian internet control. You should thank them, actually. If not for the likes of Anonymous this website wouldn't exist. There's something to think about.

In last half hour the numbers have increased to over 400 from the last posted 300 who are taking part in Operation Payback. That's 100 more attackers in just 30 mins approx. WOW! It's increasing rapidly and I suspect in few more hours it will become more intense. A view of the chat

The problem is because of the almost secrative nature of these chat rooms, most don't get to them. The 400 on the chat room are surely a minority. In that they'll be thousands more, who aren't in the chatroom, carrying out Denial of Service attacks.

Alot of people also just like to be in the chatroom and feel part of something. They're not all necessarily carrying out DDoS attacks themselfs.

Stick around in the chatroom though, last time when I was helping with 'Operation Payback' their website was constantly being attacked by 'enemy combatants'. It's rather humorous. Like playing a real life strategy-game.

Was 800 members when I checked just now. And they're under DDoS attacks themself.

The only thing 4chan is responsible for is breeding the worlds largest collection of trolls who believe that because they took part in some massive DDoS attack they are the worlds elite hackers.

I hate their attitudes, I hate hate their l33t speak or whatever the hell it is, I hate their agenda and most of all....I hate that sodding pedo bear, wrong on sooo many levels.

They are a bunch of immature prepubescent spotty adolescents who need to come out of their bedrooms and stop watching kiddy porn.

Attacking sites like paypal affects ALL users of the site, I am currently having problems verifying my account as stated in a previous post and I need access to it, if its their fault these problems have arisen then they are attacking me as well.

Yeah! Lets allow these large corporations and governments to ruin the internet because it's more conveniant for you.

I mean, a free internet is really irrelivent. In the bigger picture what really matters is you get your Paypal account verified

You are correct, that is only one chatroom many more are floating around. I suspect many individuals are doing it as you describe.

It's not just about me, it affects millions of users who rely on their services (btw, it's spelled convenient).

I don't like big corporations very much, but the fact is, they are there, and as much as it pains us, we need to use them on occasion.
