Then by your silly analogy, the targets of anonymous are the websites of innocent people. Do you even know what they do?
If the government decides to shut down the internet guess what will happen? A huge ****storm of protesting. Too many people rely on the internet not just for entertainment, but for business. When you take away a mans ability to pay for food, that man will do whatever it takes to get it.

Beezzer's final thoughts on this thread.
We could continue, back and forth. But I'm seeing something here. Something I'm very familiar with.
When I defend the Tea Party, people are saying that it's been hi-jacked, that I and as an extension the Tea Party, is being used.
Being on the other "side" of the arguement has been enlightening. I've used the same accusations, and have heard the same responses from you folks that I have used to defend something I believe in.
Funny thing though. Whether or not Anon is a government op or a group of freedom fighters bravely fighting the system with nobility and honour; the fact remains that government is going to push for more regulation on the internet.
I'll fight it my way.
You folks fight it your way.
We have to remember we do have a common enemy in this.
Exactly. Because I was argueing under the impression that Anon is not a nice element.

No I have never stubbed my toe and thought it was the most important pain in the world.. not even close.
I would love to see proof backing up these claims that anonymous hit a bank in a backwater town. Actually that would more likely be the governments agenda.. get a bunch of flag flying, old 'muricans such as yourself to hate anonymous because of something as silly as a day late payment.
Actually I would like to just call out right now that I think it's complete bull[snip]. There was never a little old lady that couldn't access her money. It's just propaganda.edit on 11-7-2011 by GogoVicMorrow because: (no reason given)

I hope they lure lots of stupid idiot would be terrorists into handcuffs, this is a worthy cause.
shutting down the internet would cause financial havoc on such a great scale that it would completely collapse our and the worlds economy.
