Good news for the FBI! Apparently they're having a hard time recruiting their own hackers due to the fact all the hackers have used drugs at one point or another.
This way they get their hacking work done, and for free!
The .gov have many more resources than you could possibly imagine.
The only spooks or feds in anonymous are probably there to watch them when individuals do something stupid, as they usually do. It's easier to build a case against them.
As cool as all of the cloak and dagger stuff is, it's a fantasy that is not reality.
The reality is dry, bureaucratic, boring florescent lighting burning your retinas.
Anonymous is a joke, just like 99% of the hitmen on the darknet.
What makes you so sure that 99% of the hitmen on the darknet are a joke? Want to test that theory? Go to various hitman websites around the darknet and threaten them and provoke them. Then come back and post illustrated results. Don't want to go knocking on the devils door? That is what I thought.
And what makes you so positive that Anonymous isn't capable of doing anything besides cyber attacks? What makes you so sure they don't have assassin rings around the world? Or a Para-Military/Militia type groups strategically placed around the world ready for an assault when given the order?
You're speaking in absolutes and trivializing a subject that isn't trivial.

This is the worst news in the world, ever!. Some guy, clearly wearing a mask and disguising himself, claims to represent a group who also wear likewise masks and hide themselves? You can't see an issue with credibility there?
This guy could be Harry Potter, or Obama for all we know., It could be me or you did it in your sleep walk... And he/she speaks on behalf of a group of anarchist based internet activists who all hold various different opinions and accept that. Have any videos come to light from Anonymous and said the opposite? I call this bull#. I find this hard to believe considering the very clearly anti-establishment views they used to have and how much this goes against who they used to be.
I could be wrong, but then how could we be sure if they are wearing a mask and disguising their voices?
