my friends and I were talking about anonymous the other night and my theory was alot of those anon kids were bullied at school and so theyre taking it out on others over the inet. Today i saw this story about topiarys arrest www.dailymail.co.uk...
Nikki Finnie, 17, who went to school with Davis (topiary), said he was so badly bullied that he left and retreated into a computer fantasy world.
damn i'm good!

Keep believing all of that, eventually you will see how wrong you are.
There is no encryption methods that the US intelligence community can't decrypt, virtually all of these methods were designed by them, and released into the private sector.
As far as controlling the internet in the USA, some basic infrastructure changes would be made, from there compliance would be a matter of law for ALL providers, easily enforceable with heavy fines and serious jail time.
You want on the main internet, you'll have to get on through a system of identification and authentication, you will not do anything while connected to the net without your identity and exact location being with you, you will have to be licensed to create content, websites, blogs, etc.
It's just a matter of time, and anonymous is helping that process along.
Thus, an attack against a 256-bit-key AES requiring 2^200 operations (compared to 2^256 possible keys) would be considered a break, even though 2^200 operations would still take far longer than the age of the universe to complete.

Strip away the BS rhetoric and look at what they actually do,
Anonymous are extortionists
Anonymous are ID thieves
Anonymous are credit card fraud
Anonymous are terrorists
Anonymous are pro censorship
Anonymous are organized crime
Anonymous are going to jail
Anonymous won't save you
The long arm of the law never forgets
Expect a long sentence
Epic lulz at nerds in jail, 60 million + will be cheering
The Real idea behind anonymous is for hardened criminals to hide behind a safety net of mindless suckers.
So if you ddos'd while the police and others id's and personal info was stolen, you are not just some innocent protestor you are in a conspiracy to commit extortion and other felonys. Expect jail, nothing less.
Leaderless, no way. Whoever is holding onto all this stolen data is of elevated status and by that very nature a higher profile target for the law. This fact alone proves all the talk of everyone is the same in anon is all pure lies. Not just any joe or mary nerd gets entrusted with the botnets and stolen data.
So if you are in anon sheepling along all proud, ask yourself why don't you have possession of the stolen goods? Because you are a worthless grunt not deemed worthy of the position, lowman on the totem pole, nothing, expendable.
When they secretly take those stolen id's and sell them to the underground, they just decided for you what charges your ddos accomplice activity will be thrown at you. If people die because of their actions with the stolen data you are now an accessory to those crimes also. Anonymous is not a free conscience ride like their propaganda says.
Anonymous acquires data and information in this case for insurance. Anonymous exposes what dirt it finds. If those whom have been doxed have nothing to hide and have not committed crimes against his fellow man then they have nothing to fear.
What are the charges?

anonymous will be defined by the worst acts they commit. That's the thing about anon they're everyone & no one. So if one hacks a police server you all get tarred with the same brush and its the worst crimes the public, police & media will remember you for.
seriously anon need a legit political wing which can say it does everything by the letter of the law (protests etc). Have the hackers as a sort of cyber-paramilitary wing not "officially" endorsed by the first group. A bit like Sinn fein and the IRA.edit on 1-8-2011 by yeti101 because: (no reason given)
