Because they're causing fear and implementing destruction to further an agenda. That's terrorism. I mean, they're hacking banks and releasing information, and they've done it before. I don't really care about website defacement and ddos attacks. That's script kiddie BS. But when you post banking information and social security numbers, we have a problem.
LulzSec does not appear to hack for financial profit. The group claimed main motivation is to have fun by causing mayhem. They did things "for the lulz" and focus on the possible comedic and entertainment value of attacking targets.

Here's the thing, though: Anonymous has taken up the mantle of a vigilante organization. When that happens, the inevitable questions are -
Does this group think it's above the law?
Does this group have morals we feel comfortable with?
Where does this group draw the line?
Can we count on it to do what's right, even when it wants to do otherwise?
How do we know this group is legitimate, and not a cover?
How do we know this group won't eventually work for itself, rather than the people?
Vigilante groups scare me. They can be useful, but they're also unstable. Do you want a rabid dog to guard your family?

Can someone give me a shortened and simplified explanation as to what exactly these cyber attacks accomplish? This is not sarcasm in any-sense, I just honestly don't have a real good grip on what these guys do....
We gonna take back our freedom and bring free knowledge to all.
You know greedy, we gonna fight back. Simply 4lulz.
We're the people. The internet. The 99%. The humanity.
And we are the only system.

What you are refusing to accept, despite its being a fact, is that Hamas firing at Israel, is like a mosquito trying to bite a main battle tank. Does a tank commander consider the correct response as being risking the lives of people and property around it, by churning out shells and bullets from its main and secondary weapons in response to this threat? No, because that would be A) idiotic and B) cause more damage to any surrounding population, and property, than it would the mosquito.
I am inviting you to live for a few weeks under the the range of hamas missiles. I am sure you will come up with even better ways to figth the evil ways of the hamas who most always launch missiles from populated civilian areas towards israel.
