Perhaps, then, you would like to expand on the nature of anonymous, instead of using thinly veiled insults to justify a position based on merely
stating that others are wrong?
Thanks for making a coherent reply. It's easier to not be nasty and snappy to people who actually express some coherence. And I was in a rather mean
mood yesterday, hehe. Anonymous is very difficult to properly define, and that is because of the nebulous nature. All we can really say accurately
is what they're not, and this is one thing that they're not. (But the insults weren't really all that veiled. I called you asthma!)
Whichever way we might choose to describe it, I am sure we can agree that anonymous - as a whole - has a very vague sense of direction, and
what may seem appealing to one "member" will not be so for another?
The very RL protests against scientology spring to mind as an example of this.
This is pretty damn accurate. The only problem is that their vague sense of direction is in actuality no
sense of direction. They can be best
described as particles of gas, moving essentially randomly. Occasionally, they all or large numbers of them move in the same direction, and this
produces a wind. (yeah, I know that's not how wind or particles of gas actually work, but go with it. It's a good visual metaphor) This results in
things like the scientology protests.
But the gas still has some very specific properties which are confusing and hard to name, but you can identify things which have a lack of them. This
protest lacks the properties of Anonymous gas.
