    These idiots are mad that BART(local electric trains) is shutting off its free WiFi for customers because they were using it to stage protests. Also a BART cop who was white killed a black passenger years ago which I am sure you guys heard about named Oscar Grant. Why the race of them both matters is beyond me.

    So what do these hacktivist's do? Take private information from the BART websites and make them public... I have supported some things they did but this is getting stupid. They seem like a bunch of hipsters and kids angry at the man. What are your opinions about them? Support or no?

    anonymous is not a real group. its a catchall term for a group of random people. channers, hackers, 12 year olds, scientology protesters

    still lost on why the media keeps trying to say that they are all the same group

    Wait they're protesting the loss of free wifi because they were protesting. protesception? These hacktivist aren't actually making things better, they are just being dumb and pointless and doing stuff that no one cares about, like making private information public for a transportation company.

    Don't support because they are already doing something illegal to get what they want, which is something that doesn't really matter. Only support anti-DRM/Copyright.

    Anonymous is great. There are a lot of smart people floating around there and i like their grass-root decision making. Of course, since 90% of them are stupid h4xor kiddies, those decisions aren't always bright.

    I don't really know what to think about them. Negative side is that they leak personal info and documents that shouldn't be leaked.
    Positive side is that they care about your privacy, which explains why they want to take down Facebook.
    I'm tilting towards hate than love, as they do a lot of unnecessary shit like empty threats and DDOSing servers for "fun".

    Contra: -they attacked Bethesda Studios (but where sorry for it afterwards)

    Pro: -they produce workload on the IT-Crowd and that is good for business and IT jobs.

    If they worked more like lulzsec I would like them, but i mean if they cared about our privacy why post info they steal on the net? And we all damn well know facebook sells info to the government and all that crap. I wouldn't use it if I planned on doing something that would attract government attention..

    I dunno sometimes it seems like to me they are trying to show off or get attention instead of really "sticking it to the man"

    To me it shows how systems are kinda falling apart. London riots, some retards abusing some other retards... It's like society is becoming more fractured and decentralized, where everyone and his dog can belong to some group or other, and with enough of those groups many are going to fuck shit up just for fun.

    It's the "Project Mayhem" generation.
