ANONYMOUS

so we all know about anonymous are, or atleast you should, seems they have started their most ambitious campaign.


There have been many groups that have promoted a similar message before such as zietgiest, who i look upon unfavourably.
what's everyone's views on the campaign or anonymous past campaigns?
But unlike those that came before them, anon has already took action with many campaigns (most of which i agree with) making them more credible and already a powerful entity.
Does anyone believe such a campaign is needed? will it work and will you join?

Re: ANONYMOUS

I know it defeats the purpose of the thread, and for this I apologise, but I'm not even going to bother watching the video. I post regularly on 4Chan (so an Anon too, I gues), but I never get involved in any of their 'campaigns.' Just another measure in gaining self-importance and attention to me.

Aside from anything else, the whole 'We are Legion, expect us' bull**** really pisses me off.
"We do not forgive. We hate you, cam*****!"
*proceeds to post topless photo*
"All hail the new Queen of /b/!"

Basically, my thoughts: Anon (including myself, I suppose...) - morons who are good for a laugh if you browse the boards and share their humour.

Re: ANONYMOUS

well this new campaign is not about hacking at all, so maybe you should watch the video.

also the whole legion thing is now

"We are all Anonymous: United as one, divided by zero."

Re: ANONYMOUS

I'm not watching the whole thing, it's too long and boring. But from what I've gathered on the parts I've clicked through, it's about them fighting against Internet censorship.

I'd say it's a noble goal, to be sure, but these are the people that happily post child porn near every day. Not the kind of 'freedom' I want them to have, personally.

If I've picked up the message wrong, fair play. But regardless of what it's about, I will not stand behind an 'organisation' who readily share and promote child porn and other things along those lines which just shouldn't be done.

I still stand by what I said originally: good for a laugh at times, nothing else.

Re: ANONYMOUS

where has the child porn thing come from? do you know something we dont?
Also the video is asking for people to try and make a change and protest injustices, educate yourselves and become more sustainable, there's a year along plan thats just got under the way, and with support maybe we can tell the energy company's to book up their ideas, tell the banks we've had enough off them courting the market then paying themselves insane bonuses after the tax payer bails them out, or any other thing that pisses you off............or maybe noting will happen because to many people will take the opinion it wont help. when its only that opinion that can undermine such movement.

Re: ANONYMOUS

Refresh /b/ 4, maybe 5 times. A child porn thread will likely be on the front page. It's not a secret only I know. Anyone who browses 4Chan is bound to have seen it.

That doesn't suggest that the vast majority of the community is happy with it appearing. It's a massive generalisation.

That's a bit like saying if you walk around america every 6th person you see is fat and then concluding that all americans are fat.

Re: ANONYMOUS

I didn't say the vast majority of them are. Unfortunately iy's hard to tell if there's a lot fo them or a little amount, the nature of anonymity. The large reply numbers on each thread starting with a picture of cheese pizza, or Captain Piccard, however, would suggest a fair amount.

The sad fact is, these people will create threads to actively combat against 'cancer' threads, like people wanting attention or people asking for money or such, but never a bad word against their precious 'CP.'

Well it did seem that you were inferring that by.

Also I doubt Anonymous (the hackers themselves) are the ones posting the actual child porn. Personally I think the idea of "Cheese Pizza" and "Captain Picard" joke threads are quite humorous (I personally don't look very often on /b/) but then I find a lot of the jokes on the likes of sickipedia funny which you wouldn't expect to be able to say in a crowded place in public for fear of being arrested/stabbed.

My apolgies, it wasn't intended that way when it was written.

I find most of the things posted there humorous, it's why I browse there quite often, I have a folder filled with pictures that amuse me I've got from there. Sickipedia is also a place I regularly visit for a laugh; I tend to find things funny most people find offensive.

The thing is, the Captain Piccard threads aren't 'joke' threads. It's a thinly veiled measure to hide a child porn thread, because I believe any poster who creates a thread with 'child porn' in the title is automatically banned, now.

Ah, well in that case it is extremely wrong.

Every site they have hacked, they've had just cause to do ao imo, with the exception of sony. But on the other side of the coin i think sony handled the whole situation terribly.

as for the whole child porn thing, i still fail to see the connection, because some randoms post it on site you visit (if i were you i would not visit that site out of principle). That anonymous may use.

The whole point of this is to try and bring change to the things that we see unfair and unjust, which means if we can get enough support tougher sentences on paedophiles could be feasible.

Re: ANONYMOUS

4Chan IS Anonymous. It's who they are and where they come from. The child porn has everything to do with it.

It's not just 'some randoms,' 4Chan as a whole IS Anonymous. I don't want to support anyone's cause if there's a chance a percentage of them is effectively paedophiles. It really makes no difference what their cause is - I find most offensive stuff funny but I draw the line somewhere, and that's it.

They could be on a crusade to save the world for all I care, I still wouldn't get behind the group as a whole; like I said (but failed to specify originally) I'm not accusing all of them of it (as I also said, I regularly post on there myself), but the 'CP' threads are among the highest replied to on the board, indicating a large amount of interest from Anonymous at large.

It honestly would not surprise me if someone brought up supporting tougher sentences on paedophiles they blew it off and said the internet is supposed to be free and child porn is a natural part of it.

Re: ANONYMOUS

You seem to be using the terms 4chan and /b/ interchangeably, stop that.The Anonymous never forgive never forget crap confined to a single board - /b/ only.
