Ranting aside, I hope anonymous keeps fighting the good fight. But even then I can't help but wonder, what are they trying to gain from there actions.

They hacked millions of customer identities and credit card information that are supposed to be as private as health care records .
As far as the legions of them , we'll see how many legions are left around when even half of the 40 get 5 years in prison .
Hacking the personal private information of innocent people is malicious by even intent .
They could have put up a legal website to solicit donations to Wikileaks and judging by the support just here , they could have raised a fortune instead of costing these companies a fortune in security upgrades and millions of customers sleepless nights wonder if someone has their personal ID , financial history along with credit cards numbers prepared to strike .
There is no such thing as totally annonymous on the Internet and Moms basement provides little protection either . Just criminals in the shadows but the spotlight just got turn on 40 of them and the warrants don't come in the mail so the hard drives are in custody .
When half or hopefully more of these criminals get sentenced to prison there seems to be a good pool of volunteers right here to take their place and share a cell .
This PS3 incident offered a great opportunity to give my 12-year-old a lesson in current events. The poor kid is going into PS3 withdrawal. We talked about WikiLeaks, DDOS attacks, Sony's position on jailbreakers etc. He weighed both sides of the issue and guess whose position he decided is justified? Anonymous Little rebel.
