    Apparently a website called Megaupload was taken down by the FBI, it's founder including 4 of the websites members were arrested, and some internet denzines did not take too kindly to it. The hacker Anonymous seems to be taking this one personally.


    Anonymous has posted a response to these happenings, and apparently Chris Dodd is squarely in their sites:


    1. SOPA also makes it in the response. Is this civil disobedience or illegal activity?

    Did Anonymous ever release that stuff on the Mexican cartel?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Very dumb move by "Anonymous". What people fail to realize is that if the Internet cannot find some sort of governance, then I get the feeling it's going to start to shrink. It will go from being the World-Wide Web to being a much less open community, by law and regulation. It's just that simple. I have no use for online piracy, or these hackers who think they can do whatever they damn well please. If SOPA doesn't pass, you may well see some of these companies no longer allowing their intellectual property to be displayed online at all.

    No idea. Truth is I never heard of Anonymous until this story came out yesterday on Drudge.

    It shows our government technology is not that strong. Unfortunately, Anonymous is going to have to do a lot more than take down a few web pages to gain fame.

    If SOPA passes I think there will be outright cyber warfare.
    I agree.What this is amounts to a spit wad being shot at a heavily armored tank.Barely even an annoyance. Perhaps Anonymous should change their name to Annoyance.

    The problem with civil disobedience is that it is used as an excuse. Online hacker attacks on sites are a good example. Anonymous has from the start portrayed themselves as a group that acts outside of the law on their own terms. They make it clear that everything in the world must go as they dictate or they will attack you in some form. Definitely criminal, there's no two ways about it. Anonymous's entire strategy is militant it never has been a protest, it is attack based hacking.

    Anon regularly attacks commerce and the government in essence Anon is attacking the American people. Anon is not the American people it is a small group of thugs terrorizing society with computers. The corporations that they attack are used by the people. The method of doing these attacks is by taking over innocent peoples computers. They are hackers they most likely are funding their ideological crusade by illegally hacking into others computers and stealing the funds. Or more likely just using your information and writing checks for that new Mac.

    How else are they to get attention and show that there are those who have power (albiet limited) are displeased? Write on a forum board? Not likely.... My point here is this is the only way to gain attention of the media with the non-hacker world, and gain the attention of those who they are trying communicate with, in such a way as they are taken seriously. It's the same as protesting and civil disobedience. Sure, civil disobedience is abused and often used as an excuse, but that does not cheapen it's effectiveness. As long as it's effective, they'll continue to do it.

    Certainly illegal but this hardly qualifies as terrorism.

    Typical right-wing, playing the terrorism card.

    I wouldn't call it terrorism, but I would suggest that attackes on any of those sites which are run by the US Government come downright close to meeting my personal definition of treason.
