Should the US government keep their noses out of Egypt, Yes, does it have anything to do with a bunch of "hackers" from a rather silly web site. No

Bomb threats and high school massacres?
That's interesting, because that's honestly the FIRST time I have EVER heard anything even remotely like that about them. Are you sure that these horrors that have been "attributed" to them was actually "done" by them? All it takes is for some nitwit to do something wrong and falsely claim that they were affiliated with "Anonymous," and then, not only do they have a "name" and recognition, but, authorities use that as a way to demonize them. There's also the idea that members of our press and government outright LIE about events and then falsely blame these events on "Anonymous." Believe me friend...it wouldn't be the first time.
This is how you decide to treat those who are doing their best to represent the interest of the proletariat and the people themselves
I am more than positive that there are probably Anon members on this site. If I were you, I really wouldn't be slandering them for no particular reason. I know that I wouldn't whether I agreed or disagreed with their cause. I'd be too scared they'd hack my butt and turn my files into mush.
......and your ignorance is disturbing, If you are using an online server proxy, they delete your log files as per a legal agreement when you sign up with the companies. There are real "hackers" out there that offer online services in pursuit of their "everyone owns the internet" theory and they make sure your tracks are covered for you. It costs you a monthly payment but it gets done. They delete (automatically) the log files and DHCP timestamps and they do a DOD security wipe to ensure there is no recovery. There are private VPN services that are even faster considering bandwidth using strong encryption methods such as SSL/TLS and do the same as the previous. Don't try to exalt yourself over someone here who actually knows how the internet works. You will become now the foolish one. I know a couple of these guys and I have seen them at work. Go learn something new.edit on 10-2-2011 by Phenomium because: (no reason given)

In case you did not realize, which obvioulsy you did not....
Wikipedia does contain footnotes, and in many of them are hyperlinks to the actual news stories,
As in this one....
a group calling itself Anonymous launched a viral No Cussing Sucks campaign across the Web.
On sites that seemed to vanish as quickly as they appeared, they posted Hatch’s name, photo and contact information and urged people to harass him.
McKay’s father, Brent Hatch, said his son had received more than 22,000 e-mails in fewer than two weeks.
“We are conducting an investigation at this time, but I’m not able to talk about what we’re doing,” South Pasadena police Capt. Richard Kowaltschuk said.
He did say detectives were examining the e-mails, adding, “If someone threatens your life that is a violation of the law, whether it’s done verbally or over the Internet.”
