Sounds like this is the work of CIA Spooks to me. Sure, ANON crashes the web, conveniently giving the pigs in power the ammo they need to put the clamps on the internet.


Wake up. These people running around as "ANON" are frauds that work for the elites who want to take your freedom and wipe their asses with it

I also find it odd that they announce to the world what they're doing. It's just so obvious and ridiculous, whoever plans this stuff needs a few tips.

According to a statement, which the group posted on Pastebin earlier this week, it plans to attack 13 DNS servers that ensure URLs such as google.co.uk are translated into the IP addresses that host these websites.

"To protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of sheer sadistic fun, On March 31, anonymous will shut the internet down," the group said in the statement.

This is a bad call and will backfire if it happens.

Honestly, what a bunch of bs. Nothing is going to happen! Just another group of big talk, no walk punks. If they were going to do something like that, IF THEY EVEN COULD, they wouldn't announce a date six weeks away; they'd just do it and then take credit like any other self respecting cyber-terrorists.


This could just be a release from a 12yr old kid for we know. Don't forget, anyone can pretend to be the real Anonymous. I am, and so is my Wife. And the dog.

The long leadtime is presumably so the kid can count the number of news stories and stuff on his or her bedroom wall.

Meh.

I will be waiting with baited breath.

Imagine if they actually carry this out. Various individuals will lose money through business but companies and then governments will lose as whole lot more.

I have always assumed that Anonymous were a group of people but if they succeed - the power that they will hold will be phenomenon - too much to handle - and could easily turn individuals against the group even if it is the CIA,FBI or any other company.

yes I know - a big IF

So these wannabe hackers will prevent the average person from accessing the internet, innocent people who rely on it for income will once again suffer, people who rely on it to contact loved ones far away will suffer and the worlds governments will have more of an excuse to clamp down on the internet. In the mean time these little basement dwellers will go back to "fapping" over 4chan pedo bear hosted kiddie porn, thinking they have done a great justice and totally ignoring the wider moral implications of their actions?

I hope every one of these arseholes get the maximum sentence the courts can hand out as an example that what they do isn't cool, it's just damn ignorant.

Good I'm glad! I hope they shut off cable T.V. too so my brainwashed family can get a break from all that subliminal messaging.

A crop circle?

Be funny if the anon mask gets his own crop circle.

Too funny.

Something fishy going on here ... ?

The FBI Might Cut Off the Internet For Millions of People on March 8th





In an unprecedented move, the FBI may cut off Internet access to millions of people on March 8th to try to rid the country of a Trojan. Millions of computers are infected worldwide—maybe even yours. The DNSChanger Trojan originated in Estonia and might be lurking undetected on as many as a half-million computers in the United States, according to Brian Krebs. It has been found on the computers at half of all Fortune 500 companies and at 27 government agencies. The Trojan changes an infected computer's DNS settings to send users to fraudulent websites. What's more, the worm is particularly malicious in that it also prevents you from visiting security websites that might diagnose or fix the problem. While the men authorities suspect are behind the Trojan have been arrested, the Feds, working in concert with the Estonian government, have yet to put the final kill on the worm's botnet.

Read More Here ...
The FBI has a court order allowing it to set up temporary replacement DNS servers so that those with infected computers or networks can get the worm off of their systems. The court order, however, expires on March 8th. Unless that order gets extended, anybody who hasn't cleaned up their act before it expires, might get cut off from the Internet altogether.

I can understand them protesting SOPA and things like that, but what about the rest of us that are against SOPA? Maybe some of us make our money from the web honestly and use that money to support our families. And as a previous poster stated, what about hospitals/medical institutions that use the net for their patients. I don't see this helping in the cause against SOPA.

I hate when they announce something and build hype for no reason.

Just do it and take credit later, or during?

Many members believe that Anon might be part of black government..

As for the April fools day, I think it would make more sense if they did it on 4/1.

They are well aware of it and I'd bet that they would do it for a short amount of time just to prove themselves capable.

Anonymous couldn't shut down a bar at 2am. This is the funniest thread I've read since that last "Anonymous is going to....." thread.
