Serving as a spokesperson does not make him a member. I tell you what. I'm now the spokesperson for LulzSec. I can tweet about it. I'm not quite so witty, but so what? All this guy did was gain some notoriety. He's like the guys who lay claim to murders so they can get their names in the paper. Honestly, do you think these guys are that stupid? Why do you think you haven't heard anything about the cocky guy they arrested in England. He's a front-man, not really part of "LulzSec's core". Dorks.

"It's not about identity theft or making money. It's about showing you can. It's a slap in the face to the establishment. How do you break that? You don’t."

Actually, it's not about showboating-- it's about fighting corruption. The way to fight it is to *stop being corrupt*.

"Actually, it's not about showboatin­g-- it's about fighting corruption­." Tell that to Sabu and BarretBrown.

Since when was LulzSec an offshoot of Anonymous?

It was my understanding that the two groups are loosely associated, and have many of the same "members", but are not closely connected.

I do NOT support cyber terrorism. I do NOT support attacking peaceful company websites. For some of their actions, I understand why the Government wants to go after "Anonymous"...

...HOWEVER, that said, groups like Anonymous are lashing out because the Government is going waaaaay too far as well. I didn't notice an article at Huff Po, but yesterday a House panel APPROVED an all-new intrusive Internet "snooping" bill. Key points from CNET...

>> It represents a victory for conservative Republicans, who made data retention their first major technology initiative after last fall's elections, and the Justice Department officials who have lobbied for the sweeping new requirements...

>> The bill expands information that Internet providers are required to store to include customers' names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and temporarily-assigned IP addresses. By a 7-16 vote, the panel rejected an amendment that would have clarified only IP addresses must be stored.

>> "It represents a data bank of EVERY digital act by EVERY American, that would let us find out where EVERY single American visited a Web sites," said Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, who led Democratic opposition to the bill.

>> To make it politically difficult to oppose, proponents dubbed the bill the "Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act of 2011" -- even though the mandatory logs would now be accessible to police investigating ANY crime, and perhaps attorneys litigating disputes in divorce, insurance fraud and other cases as well.

The FBI are tards. They only need change in attitude to become members of Anonymous.

As a programmer, I love these guys. They post, "Expect Us" on their target and then they kick in their doors and shut them down. This embarrasses the companies and exposes them as second rate, because if they had the proper security and counter measures in place, they would be able to take the hit. But these companies are always trying to do things on the cheep, so they get what they deserve.

While I enjoy watching their exploits to mess up Westboro, the CoS, the Pentagon, and others places well deserving of it, I just wish their targeting was more selective and the end users they are supposedly protecting don't end up as the ultimate targets. Leave the careless collateral damage done to civilians to the government and these others, who are already well practiced at it. Take the fight to those who truly deserve it.

You just don't get it do you? We have grievances that need to be addressed. Anonymous is merely the medium that those who cannot speak for themselves use. The rich and powerful may have money and vast resources, but they can never stop an idea. The great writer Oscar Wilde once said, "An idea that isn't dangerous as hardly an idea at all". As we all know, ideas are bulletproof.

"Ideas are bulletproof" - But the people that hold them, are not. Let go of the flowery rhetoric.

Let go the idea that we care. Look at what's happening in Saudi Arabia. Bullets are hardly a concern when our freedoms are being attacked and undermined in rapid succession and the people we trusted to uphold the Constitution of the United States is perverted and undermined in such a way that we've become a) a third world country, one that Pinochet would be proud of, and b) the promises of our Constitution have been ripped from us for the sake of a very few people making a lot of money off our backs. Look at your history. There are only so many bullets one can fire before one runs out of bullets and is faced with what remains of an extraordinarily angry mob, and all it will take is the expected brutalization of one person's child to set it off.

I look forward to the day that the Justice Department throws its hands in the air and realizes that there is no way that they are ever going to have any sort of meaningful effect on a movement that is more of a gestalt than anything else. I thought lawyers were supposed to be bright. Anon, rock on.
06:30 AM on 07/29/2011
Lawyers are bright...in certain aspects. Very few, if any, lawyers are well practiced enough in programming in general to be able to do anything. All they know is the law and if it was broken or not. Not too hard to see that laws were broken...but if you can't find the culprit, then what?

"This is the year of the hacker, where you can sit anywhere in the world and make your little attacks," Hilbert said. "It's not about identity theft or making money. It's about showing you can. It's a slap in the face to the establishment. How do you break that? You don’t."

This, on top of other selected quotes, demonstrate one of the few former feds who apparently gets it to a degree.

Exactly. He knows the gov't has its back against the wall. Sure...take a few out here or there, but more will take their place. The amount of backing will bring them to rockstar status if a truly important member is ever named. It's like watching Robin Hood...except in the 21st century.

We need to round up everyone of these punks and hang their arses on the white house lawn. Or get them a girl friend.
