I had no idea where to put this. It's my first thread, and it has nothing to do with any kind of conspiracy aside from Annonymous conspiring against
Sony. So I just put it in SkunkWorks. If there's a more appropriate place a mod is free to move it. Anyway.......
I've always supported Annonymous. They've used their power for alot of worthy causes. I especially loved their attack on Westborough Baptist Church.
But what they're doing right now against Sony Computer Entertainment makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever, and is completely infringing upon my
rights to do what I like with my free time, which is to play video games.
For some reason Annonymous has taken up a crusade against Sony Computer Entertainment. They are attacking Sony's website, and right now they're
attacking the actual PlayStation Network (the network upon which games are played online). No gamers are able to log in to the PSN with their PS3,
PSPs or onto any network tied websites. They're only doing this because Sony DARED to protect itself from, and go after in a court of law, piracy on
it's platforms. Sony never would have gone after the hacker known as GeoHotz if he didn't publically release Sony's proprietary source code,
enabling pirates to play pirated software on PS3. Why does Annonymous feel Sony doesn't have a right to curb piracy? It's not like we're talking
about homebrew here.
If Annonymous reads this.....please......cease your attack on Sony to the point where it's taking away millions of gamer's rights to play their
games online. You say you're attacking Sony because Sony going after GeoHotz is an attack on free speech........it isn't, it's an attack on piracy.
GeoHotz had no god given right to do what he did. He didn't release Sony's proprietary code to enable Homebrew because Homebrew is POINTLESS on a
dedicated gaming console....it was ONLY to enable piracy.
Don't use your powers to protect some pompous kid who did nothing but enable theives to steal directly from Sony's pockets. You should be using your
powers and resources for worthy causes that matter, like you have in the past...... not to protect criminal behaviour. Especially at the expense of
millions of innocent gamers, it's just not right. Annonymous is about protecting people's rights, not infringing upon them. Sony are people too, and
they have every right to protect themselves against piracy. Alot of money and effort goes into games and their network. They have the right to defend
I looked around for a way to contact Annonymous directly....like a website or something, but couldn't find one. So I'm making this plea to them
through this website. If anyone here has a way to forward this to Annonymous, please do so. And if any mod could move this to a more appropriate
sub-forum where it has a better chance of being seen by Annonymous, please do so. Myself and millions of other gamers around the world would greatly
appreciate it. Thanks.
