There is no excuse for that kind of sloppiness because it's not like they have to go deep in the field or whatever, all they have to do is boot up their computers and spend a little time at the right places and they'll get it

Although Anonymous doesn't really have leaders...anything that comes across as "leadership" has little officialness to it.
No real figureheads, faces, titles, official positions, or any of that nonsense.
Anonymous makes Al CIADA seem like a typical organization.

# White. They might have sympathisers among other ethnicities, but from everything I've ever seen, most of Anonymous are from America and the UK. White supremacy and virulent anti-Semitism are both common. # Male. Again, Anonettes *do* exist, but I don't think they're the majority, from what I've seen. # Between 15-25 years of age; with probably 75% being younger than 20. While Anon don't particularly like being viewed as the Lost Boys, that perception *is* largely accurate. Again, while older people do exist, they're much less common, and tend to keep a lower profile. Genuine anarchists over the age of 35 are apparently vanishingly rare, sadly. I don't think that's attributable to maturity, but corruption and the gradual loss of testosterone that occurs with age. # Atheist. Some may claim a vague belief system which is probably closer to pantheism in truth, than anything else; but for the most part, science is king. Richard Dawkins gets a lot of airtime in Anon circles. Paganism may occasionally be found, but very rarely. Semitic monotheism is largely non-existent. # Often (although definitely not always) 125-150+ IQ. The average Anon isn't quite as smart as he probably thinks he is, but he's close. Their atheism however means that that intelligence is almost purely left-brained; emotionally rage is generally all they display. # Anarcho-capitalist economically/politically. Anonymous is generally not anarchist in the traditional leftist sense of the word. Truly left wing Anons are something you'll almost never see; they tend to love corporatism too much, and be too racist for that. # Emotionally, they use anger, sadism, and feigned sociopathy to attempt to cover for the fact that most of them are actually extremely sensitive kids, who've usually seen one natural or political disaster too many. The thinking tends to be that if they start crying, they'll never stop; so anger is seen as a much more productive emotion, in practical terms. Mind you, what I'm describing here are the Chanology/newfag crowd. Anonymous' old school can often be quite genuinely sociopathic, and they tend to express disgust and contempt towards the more truly empathic newcomers. # Following on from the above, Anonymous are primarily motivated by the desire for a] smashing things, b] comedy, and c] the unrestricted freedom of the Internet, in that order. They very much enjoy impersonating V or Heath Ledger's Joker, and even more, making sure that the public view them as such; but whether or not they actually are like that in reality, is open to interpretation.
