The universe notorious group of cyber genius geeks, Anonymous, recently announced that they were going to shut down the internet completely for a day to protest again those who are looking forward to censor the internet in different parts of the world. Anonymous stated recently that they would shut down the complete internet for the users where it really costs to the governments, and the reason behind this kind of major act is the SOPA.

Who are they helping? Because if they are trying to help the people they are HURTING them by shutting off the internet.
What did the people do to them? Seriously, this group is getting on my nerves.
I'd like to see them try. The whole internet isn't something you can just turn off and on at the press of a button. That would imply that the internet is wholly sourced and located at one point. All they would have to do would be to access that one point and turn the entire thing off. Which I think, is probably impossible, without shutting every server in the world down in the meantime.

You have no idea who Anonymous are, or what they are about. If you did, you would take no claim of them planning to shut down the Internet seriously.
Anonymous are interested in doing the opposite; countering politicians and governments that want to control and restrict the Internet. The material you have read and posted, is written by the mainstream media, and is designed to be read and accepted by people who don't know any better.
