To some critics, the protest actions taken under the banner of Anonymous will be used by governments to exercise their repressive impulses. Internet critic Evgeny Morozov puts this position in no uncertain terms: "Hacktivists keep supplying the industry with strong examples as to why more public money should be spent beefing up Internet security and surveillance while eliminating online anonymity."
To others, Anonymous represents the finest the internet has to politically offer: "Anonymous demonstrates one of the new core aspects of power in a networked, democratic society: Individuals are vastly more effective and less susceptible to manipulation, control, and suppression by traditional sources of power than they were even a decade ago," writes legal scholar Yochai Benkler.

Ok, with all the BS about Anon, I really have to clarify....
Anonymous is a group that targets websites, and that is all.
It is a group of online game players that get together in a forum and decide which site to flood next, nothing more, nothing less.
I am sorry to burst your bubble, but all of the videos, news, etc, are false.
I can't post a link without exposing who they are and what they do, but this is the absolute truth....PM me and I will give you the site where you can join to bomb websites so you will see this is who they are.............. no conspiracy, sorry...
