So many people just don't seem to understand what "Anonymous" really is..
People look to it as if it's some organized group, or a person.. it's nothing of the sort
The "members" who make up anonymous change constantly.. they are every day people, though a large number of them are honestly probably teenagers with a free schedule out looking for something to occupy their times.. many are also professional adults.. the point is it's just people..
Someone might be browsing a forum and find some random conversation that causes them to group up and do something under the banner of anonymous for example.. then after whatever it is, is over with.. they go back to their lives of not knowing eachother .. more often than not it's just randomness... you can be a member of anonymous for a day and never again.. all depends on if you want to hold that banner or not.. there's no central office, nowhere to pay your dues.. and there's no CEO, Chairmen or president.
There are areas where "Anonymous" members frequent and I'm sure there are those that consider themselves full time members but there's no rank, no hierarchy, no chain of command whatsoever.. if I wanted to go make a fancy graphic tomorrow and take on a cause.. "Operation Elect Ron Paul" for example, I'm sure I could.. and it would be as valid as any Anonymous project could be.
