    We're a little sensitive to threats of overthrow and declarations of war these days. Surely you can see why.

    In their statement, they say they have been classified as a terrorist organization (I don't know if they have been or not). I see terrorism as involving physical violence toward people or property. What do you think? In your opinion, are they a terrorist organization?
    As far as I know, Anonymous has not been labeled a terrorist organization.

    However, the National Security Agency very recently declared them a possible national security threat.

    And no - I don't think Anonymous are a terrorist organization. I think they are a popular political activist organization. And I even consider them patriots.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    "Dissent" isn't the problem, the problem is criminal activity like hacking.

    Because maybe the US Government has acted in a way to deserve it?

    They don't even hack. They just do lame ass DoS attacks.

    If hacking wasn't one of the few ways to get the government to listen to the people they govern then popular groups wouldn't resort to it to get the government's attention.

    Then spread your message, but don't break the law.

    If they are criminals, treat them as criminals, The term terrorist has far too many strings attached for my liking.

    I don't buy that. Good ideas spread like wildfire. There are a lot of positive ways to get your message out.

    Breaking the law does not make one a terrorist.
