    no anonymous is fucked up

    i will not brook any awe or admiration for anonymous

    stomping that out the second i see it

    I like anonymous.

    The hackers, not the 4channers.

    There is no difference or distinction to be made.

    Anonymous isn't a group, it's a state

    I am with Japan on this one. I don't always agree with those folks. I don't agree with a lot of their methods. But sometimes they produce results that in a way help society more than any of the official or more moral channels do.

    Which anonymous do you hate? There are a lot of them. Technically there aren't any and that's the point but there are 4 or 5 distinct "anonymous" groups.

    i feel like anonymous are content to huddle under one umbrella and be one group when it suits them and pretend that they are seperate special snowflakes when the ones who are trying to do a legit anti-scientology movement want to pretend that they don't share ranks with the dudes who harass and send threats to an eleven year old girl

    Also, just curious where are the emails and such that they were suppose to leak through wikileaks yesterday? With Japan and Bahrain it has kind of gotten buried in the news.

    If I'm thinking of the same incident, that little girl was being astonishingly stupid. I wouldn't lose too much sleep over that.

    Speaking from knowing people who have helped them and such. There is no organization or central group Cass. It is very much like an old terrorist cell. Each group works individually doing what it feels is best. No leaders, no central organization and no real guiding doctrine. Break up one and it doesn't effect the others. Which is why you get them doing horrible shit and doing stuff to try and better humanity. Its basically a name numerous different groups take on as they want.

    I don't know what the law says in the US. In the EU what Etsy have done is regulatory-intervention-and-massive-fines bad.

    The issue is mostly that when you buy something off a website, people don't expect their real name and purchase history (and potentially, their email address) to be published in the open and indexable by search engines. While it may not be illegal, it's definitely contrary to expectations and I'm not aware of any other webshop that does it.

    EDIT: Also most people don't expect that a privacy policy that applied at one point to be retroactively changed with no notice.

    I wouldn't even go so far as to call the separate gatherings "groups" at all.

    They're weird people that contact each other through 4chan and do some pretty weird stuff together with whoever is interested.

    Absolutely not.

    But there is no group named Anonymous. That is merely a fabrication that has become a cultural meme.

    Uh, fairly confident if a brick and mortar sex toy shop made a list of their customers actual names and their purchases searchable in Google there would be consequences of some sort.

    Pizzas and trolling comments of her videos? According to the police, there weren't death threats and definitely no physical intimidation. Nothing happened other than a particularly obnoxious little girl with negligent parents getting a totally solicited little wakeup call.
