Just to clear some confusion that I'm seeing here...
4Chan is a group that was made up on hackers that came from other groups at some point.
- Hackers are always breaking and making new factions. Some due to Ego, some for the sake of making their own marks, ect ect. Look at it like
civilizations breaking away from their origins to make their own kingdoms. Some even break and make for security and personal preservations.
- Hackers seldom know one another on a personal basis. They really dont give a flip about one another getting busted unless it's a local ring, which
usually always have ties to other rings in other locations. Such as drug rings associated to other rings among the many suppliers.
Anon was a group that broke away from 4Chan
Lulz is also a group that broke away from 4Chan as well as Anon. The lulzboat is just part of the "slapstick" ...the love boat... and of course
associated with pirates.
Some are friends but prefer to have their own little circle among their own kind.
It's very common for members of the same group to trash one another, such as we do in ATS. We're all part of it, but many of us do not see eye to eye
or get along. Everyone has their point of view.
Anon is quiet, possibly due to the bust that was mentioned recently about a roundup done of supposed anon members.. But!! Just because a hacking
group or hacker doesnt put himself in the spotlight every single day, doesnt mean that they are gone. The best way to stay out of trouble is to act
like a gorilla warrior. Do your job, bring attention to yourself, get out and stay quiet for a while untill the next big raid. That way you're out
of sight, out of mind.
Remember this... Pirates are pranksters by their very existance. They dont do it for money. They do it for the laughs and they do it for
recognition.. at least just enough to where they remain anon and not get caught. Cant afford recognition because that would lead the FBI to their
doors. So.. Prank and Lulz it is!! Just like putting poo on your neighbors pourch and setting it on fire. They are doing it for their own laughs,
and by being on the net, everyone can laugh with them. well... at least in their minds. In truth, many do get a kick out of it, supporters or not.
THATs entertainment, my friends!
btw I wanted to mention, there is only one responcible for the playstation hack. He was part of lulz. But he doesnt consider himself to be part of
the illegal stuff lulz is into... go figure! lol
Now ya know why Anon said they didnt do it... Didnt mean they didnt know...
