The most hilarious ironic aspect of this is as follows:
Governments and Corporations pay large sums of money for information about Internet users.
Internet users make up all kinds of stuff, post hoaxes, twist the facts, etc all the time.
So the Government and Corporations are paying large amounts of money for information that is typically not even accurate.
I wish I could sell digital garbage for millions of dollars too! That would be the life.

They wouldn't need 3 months to do it. They're just giving advance warning so enough people can read and either help or get off FB by that date.
Why the need to 'get off FB'? If it goes down, does it matter who still had an account on that date, as they'd all be gone, right? I mean, are they wanting help to take FB down, or are they wanting people to delete their accounts by that date? Or both? I'm confused, who are they trying to hurt here?

Anonymous is everyone and everywhere. And the 5th of November is a known date to many...not just British. That poem is a major plot device in Alan Moore's graphic novel V for Vendetta. The book was also made into a move starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving (who was V...the guy wearing the Guy Fawkes mask). Also, members of Anonymous have been known to wear the, now infamous, Guy Fawkes mask in pictures.
