Neither is messing around with anonymous.
I know that the FBI is all over anonymous.
They have to be.
I'm curious to see how anonymous is going to stay anonymous once everyone is gunning for them.

this is one more nail in the coffin of internet freedom, every attack is one more excuse to regulate the internet until we have no internet freedoms left.
We will believe we do just as we believe we have a choice of who to vote for.
Well since youre such an expert can you please explain how the internet which is networks within networks can be regulated? any 2 pc's anywhere can make a network, how do you propose they regulate all pc's? Hmmmmmmm?

Only thing I don't like, and I've seen this come from a few truthers, is the statement "WE ARE LEGION."
These are the words that Satan uses to describe himself in the endtimes, at least, according to Christianity.
I don't necessarily believe that Anonymous knows this, but it is curious that it has come up a few times now from truthers.
What was pointed out by Crowdleaks is a proposal titled “The WikiLeaks Threat” and an email chain between three data intelligence firms. The proposal was quickly developed by Palantir Technologies, HBGary Federal, and Berico Technologies, after a request from Hunton and Williams, a law firm that currently counts Bank of America as a client.

Through your CPU and operating system combo.
Last I heard, which I admit was some time ago, ALL of the newer multi-core processors had Fritz Chips built into them, ans M$ was building a control mechanism to work with the Fritz Chips into Windows, which had about a 95% share of the OS market.
A good argument in favor of Linux and other OSes.
Intel started an earlier program in the mid-1990s that would have put the functionality of the Fritz chip inside the main PC processor, or the cache controller chip, by 2000. The Pentium serial number was a first step on the way. The adverse public reaction seems to have caused them to pause, set up a consortium with Microsoft and others, and seek safety in numbers. The consortium they set up, the Trusted Computer Platform Alliance (TCPA), was eventually incorporated and changed its name to TCG.

unfortunately I lack the skills to actually get the information from my brain to the page.
I will try another tact.
printed media was always free and open, people could print off as many copies of anything they wanted if they had the means and distribute, that still happens today, but a handfull of people now own a large slice of the media pie and we tend to get the information that they want us to see, occasionally we get real news and someting of interest, but all in all, they have their own agenda and want to purchase more and more of the media empire.
The internet right now is like the old days of the open and free press, as time progresses these small ISP's get bought out by larger and larger telecommunication companies who now bundle landline, mobile and internet access.
I understand where you are coming from, but we are not talking about the computer users who have a clue, we are talking about the masses who mash keys and follow link after link.
saying that it cant happen because it violates peoples freedom of speech is akin to saying that you can drive a car as fast as you like because you have a liscence to drive.
new laws are put in place, places like China already have filters, Iran, UK (UK cannot get access to music video on youtube IIRC)
so when polititians make laws, they make them to protect the children and for national security and no ISP wants to lose their liscence, even now ISP's are getting mail telling them that their customers are downloading illegal content and if it continues their contract may be terminated.
Do you think that given enough pressure that an ISP would not terminate a persons contract if they had been discovered hacking, and of course all that persons information is already on file from things like FB, twitter or anyother social network they may belong to.
the media just need to play the , Anon is a group of hackers who are stealing peoples identity over the internet and stealing their money and the massses will be calling for something to be done, and hello Internet version 2, free from hackers.
cant be done?
Australia changed their gun laws over night because some idiot killed a bunch of people.
people now get scanned because 1 idiot tried to set his underpants on fire.
and who complains, a handfull of people, the rest are watching Oprah and Idol
As for comparing freedom of speech using the internet to freedom of travel as fast as you like using a car, I completely disagree and in fact would argue that you do not have the right to travel as fast as you like in a car because other people have the right to feel safe when they travel.
