Saying "they" in reference to Anon is a difficult thing to put into context. Imagine that you live in, say, Los Angeles, and there is a riot there. You are a citizen of L.A., you actively participate in things that happen in L.A., but you don't agree with the reasons for the riot, so you do not participate.
Now, imagine that I come along and say "Well, Hell, you're an Angelino, so you must be guilty regarding the riot." It would not be applicable, accurate, or justifiable.
Such is Anon.
Saying that all Anons are culpable is like saying that we, as ATS members, are personally responsible for each and every post and thread on ATS. The fact is that we all have our own individual opinions, ideas, and subjects that we participate in. ATS is not a universal for us... It is simply a common board where we congregate - in agreement or otherwise.
In the paypal thread you will notice that I stated my opinions about this Anon op. I disagree heartily with it.

It's hard to get across in words my idea of what Anonymous is. There's really been nothing quite like it in history as far as I can tell. It acts like a directed, hierarchical organization, but it's really not. It's just a bunch of Internet users.
