Someone's probably already said it, but it's worth repeating:
This is the last time I will say this, if I have ever said it, so listen up. Anonymous IS NOT an organized group.
It never has been, and it
never will be.
"Anonymous" is exactly what it's name implies. Anonymous is ANYONE who chooses to do something anonymously, with or without the help of other
people. This means that in one case, Anonymous could be a 13-year-old pestering someone who uploaded a less-than-riveting youtube video, while in
another case, Anonymous could be a group of highly skilled hackers, and in another Anonymous could be a group of protesters in Guy Fawkes masks.
If you choose, you can be Anonymous. Wear a mask, or go somewhere on the internet where you can post anonymously. Ultimately, Anonymous's biggest
strength is also it's biggest weakness.
Because any idiot with a false sense of superiority can go around saying they're part of Anonymous,
doing whatever they feel like in Anonymous's name, Anonymous WILL NEVER be an organized group with a single focus,
but the whole idea is to
thrive on chaos, to do or say whatever you want because you're anonymous.
In small doses, it can be incredibly liberating, but hang out with the wrong anonymous people, and you will find yourself surrounded by depraved
perverts searching for child pornography online, or egging depressed webcam users into snuffing themselves live. Consider that your warning about the
dark side of Anonymous.
When it comes down to trying to actually organize an anonymous group of random internet users that is constantly changing based on who chooses to take
the name Anonymous next, it is near impossible. Anonymous is no one and everyone. At times, a group may take on the name "Anonymous" if they are
doing something anonymously, but Anonymous is never limited to that group.
