Anonymous, as a whole, is not the CIA. Quite the opposite. Not to say they are not watching their actions, but I know they are for great justice and doesn't afraid of anything.

EDIT: In fact, it may be just better to say I trust Anonymous as much as I trust people in general, which isn't very much, I'll give you. But I trust "people" more than TPTB.

And I trust people who dare to think and form their own opinions about something even more. At least the people who are part of Anonymous are taking a stand, which is more than can be said for most.

I can't see how Anonymous can be "run" by the CIA, but I have no doubts whatsoever that the CIA is doing its best to infiltrate and sidetrack the movement. Because it is so loose and not really organized tho, try is about all they can do. The majority of independent minds will prevail. Not sure about their reputation tho should the alphabet agencies accomplish enough smearing.

These are e-terror attacks and it will just give govt. more power over the internet.

It is nothing of the sort, these are not digital terror attacks. These are peaceful protests and should be seen as such. A denial of service attack on the front page of a website is no different from a group of people standing at the doors of a bank and protesting...
What on earth makes you consider this to be a terrorist attack, do you consider other forms of protest terrorist attacks.. Protest and activism is an intergral part of a democratic system. The governments are trying to control the internet and that is why people protest.....

Instead, why would Anon target the CC companies, like a virtual take down at the end of Fight Club?
Why mess with the USCoC?

Anonymous are just people that attack websites and do not reveal any real truth at all. And all the while giving the governments ammunition to create more cyber laws.

Wikileaks just reveal mainly war documents that helps promote more wars with the info they release
being used as propaganda from all sides.

Where are the real freedom fighters?

If passed, the 'Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property' Act - 'PROTECT IP', for short - will allow US Justice Department officials to force ISPs and search engines to block access to web sites it believes to be infringing US copyright laws, and would require other companies such as advertising network providers and payment processors to cease doing business with them.

Blocking websites...China style...
What is this, the RIAA and MPAA's (music and movie industry groups) last ditch effort at stomping on freedom? Something that could open the door to even more blatant suppression of freedom and information?

Long live The Pirate Bay...arr, shiver me timbers, go and walk the plank RIAA and MPAA

Anon doesn't have the collective testicular fortitude to take on any federal agency, nor does it have the resources or botnet armies required to take down most federal grade servers because of their computing power. Anon is the pissed off kid on IRC who wants revenge on you for banning his IP, and it would take nothing short of K-Lining him to make sure he can't get back on, and that's only if he's a stupid anon and doesn't know how to proxy-tunnel an IRC connection.

Anonymous is an immortal force of geeks who live in their parents' basements, get off on drawn porn, gore, and other sick imagery and will ruin you for a cheap laugh. there is nothing more to discuss!

"United as one, divided by Zero. Anonymous is Legion. We do not Forgive, We Do Not Forget. We are Not your Personal Army. In Lulz We Trust. Expect us." ~ their motto(s)

Pardon my forwardness......but you're an absolute idiot if you think Anon is part of the CIA.

I've heard some crazy ideas on ATS in my day, but that just might take the cake.

It's a bunch of 15-30 year olds, man. Some do it for the lulz, some feel strongly about it.....but have no doubt about it, Anon does it because they have nothing better to do with their free time.

So if someone was to dos ATS because they want to protest the mass amount of disinfo it would be fine and they should be allowed?

First off the US Chamber Of Commerce is not a Federal Agency. Their domain doesn't sit on the .gov backbone, thus they do not have the network/ server resources a federal agency would have. If you boil it down, they are more like a lobbyist group than a agency.

That being said, I'm sure network perimeter defense is like most private institutions, considering that Sony was brought to it's knees and I just read today are still being kicked in the gut now.

As far as Anon being a "State Sponsored" (CIA/ Chinese intelligence) group, it's easy for anyone to get a soapbox on the Internet and claim to be someone they are not.

Lastly, as a follower of the tech underworld I can tell you that there is a brewing civil war within Anon and the people who carry out the operations called AnonOPS. As recently as this month sever command and control servers were taken over and Anon admins can no longer access them.

So while the electronic war is just beginning to crest over into the MSM it's been full force for a while now.

Good or bad, it does not matter really, what is interesting to me is the fact that they are doing it and getting away with it. Just like the Sony thing, this is just supposedly better protected.

A non-violent way to protest? Maybe, the cost is rising quickly though and it is my bet that tax dollars are ultimately going to pay for it who really is the victim?
