Y'know for all of their critiquing of fear based politics/justice, they certainly seem to use it. a lot.

I don't quite understand the point of that article. It didn't really appear to be supporting anything, in fact it seemed to be supporting Anonymous strongly. Speaking of which, what are everyone's views on Anonymous?

I don't understand what they want.

It seems like they want all information to be free online. (So no more piracy (legalize it!) and any new research done should be publically available at no charge). Then, this is based off an article I read awhile ago, and the comments attached to it. So I could be way off (Hence the 'I don't understand what they want.')

Can somebody maybe clarify to me a little what they want? I don't have time to do research. Well, I do have time, I just really don't care enough and would rather spend the time elsewhere.

Hmm, well the point of the article (to my knowledge) was neither to support, nor attack anonymous. Just information.

On the scariness, I would agree hacking a website isn't all that hard. (not that it isn't bad morally per se, but in terms of being dangerous....), I think the danger comes from the chance that their claims of having large amounts of classified ("fissile") material are true. I don't necessarily buy those claims, but they are there.

As to my views on anonymous/what they want etc. They do want large amounts of freedom of information, although I do think that they recognize there should be limits on this. It's just that the repercussions for breaking through the limits should be like any retribution-based justice system should be: proportional to damage done, and if at all possible keeping offenders intent in mind. They are against these huge sentences which, unlike other ares of policy, make protesting nigh on impossible. I don't personally like Anonymous, because they bite into the fear based politics that they are trying to rid the criminal justice system of. I agree that any retributive system should be proportional, however the way they change the system is not something I would agree with.

EDIT: to make it clear, I'm pretty sure anonymous is pretty near to wanting to legalize piracy, just not quite there.

Uh huh....
Well, I don't support them in any way.


Personally, I think we give this one or two weeks and everyone will have forgotten about it. (Until they (Anonymous) do something else to remind us. But that could take months D: )
That's the trouble with internet based movements.

Except that they will be giving highly redacted copies of the nuke to the media.
Here is another slightly less reputable article with slightly more details if anyone is interested.

This is a metaphorical warhead, right? Some of the wording is a bit concerning in areas...

As far as I know, Anonymous isn't actually organized. It jumps on whatever topical problem is floating around it's base (the website that shall not be named) and make it big.

I have mixed feelings for the group. They do bad stuff, obviously, but I think of them more as anti-heros than villains. No one ever mentions how they shut down a massive child pornography intranet and sent IP addresses of all involved to the CIA...

They try to do good, they just go too far with it.

Anonymous isn't a group. It's a title you give yourself to be anonymous and to do things like this.

That's what I mean by "Not Organized"

Though it does have people who say that they are part of Anonymous, most of it's 'members' are just people doing these kinds of things under another name.

yes. They have large amounts of classified information that they will slowly leak to the press, and release to "key" to de-encrypting the file to the public unless the criminal justice system changes. They've called it a "nuke".

The above is what anonymous says. I still don't completely buy their claims.
