LOL! Anonymous is getting blamed for everything now... might as well throw in a new strain of avian flu and armaggedon to the mix.

Sadly Anonymous are going to have to start cracking down on these kids that are taking advantage of the situation; although, according to what I read they did crack down and that Ryan kid.

Well let's see what unfolds, I do stand behind them when they do stuff for a purpose, but can't say I very much agree when they do it for "sh*ts and giggles", or personal matters... but hey who am I to judge them?

If this is actually true, than I hope they all get arrested.

Fudging with SONY for our rights was cool, but stuff like this is just plain criminal...

They were guilty ever since they started popping up in the headlines. Now anyone can use them as a scapegoat. They should have remained under the radar and truly anonymyous. Arrogance and hacking do not mix well

yes, because Anon are Angels and bigger pathfinders than Clark Kent, and they shoot waves of cancer healing light out of their rear end holes.

Wake up, pro anons! Welcome to the real world, as evil as it is. something like a fucking digital robin hood doesn't exist.

This isn't even Anonymous, the article its linked to even says its a splinter group, dissidents who didn't agree with the general anonymous group
And by the sounds of it its a small Hacker Cell based in the UK of which this teenager Ryan is in charge

also lol at the article stating one had said he'd taken over 9000 bits of info

over 9000 is a meme.....

fail

and the fact that Anonymous as a whole has found all the personal details of Ryan and posted them online means they've dealt with him in their own way, they hacked and exposed
Now the police etc have his detail and can charge him
I would also be inclined to believe this splinter cell was the PSN hackers

Nope, this is stupid because it's unrelated to what the original attack was about.

So only NOW you finally understand after it's smacked you right between the eyes? you couldn't comprehend this beforehand when the information was presented to you on a plate, go stand in the corner and put the 'D' cap on.

Did Anonymous distance themselves from the members involved in the Gawker leak? Did they denounce it or say that it didn't fit their "hacktivism" ethos? No. They REVELED in it and posted all the details to torrent sites. All of a sudden, they care about their image and blame other doing things in the name of Anonymous as "aplinter" groups acting "out of line." Hello?! If anyone can claim to be in Anonymous, they are ALL "splinter" groups. The fact that they didn't step up as a whole and condemn the ones responsible for the Gawker leak makes them lose any sense of credibility they had for distancing themselves from things like the PSN hack and this.

According to what I've read the group that hacked gawker, gnosis, is particularly not fond of being called part of "Anonymous". One thing is true, that anybody who withholds their identity is in fact Anonymous, but the hacktivist group whom we are talking about is not to be blamed for these things... it's the same as blaming the Boston Red Sox for all assaults carried out with bats in Boston.

Then why did they do it in the name of Anonymous and brag about it as Anonymous and perpetrate it in response to Gawker employees challenging Anonymous?

again a total lack of comprehension, thats nothign like the ill thought out comment you are trying to back peddle on over and over, now had I said

Eidos say Anonymous hacked us

Anonymous say someone hacked eidos in our name

Anonymous confirmed what Eidos said

Then you would be somewhere close to what you were saying and equally as open to interpretation, but way off again, just let it go you have no idea what you are talking about yourself given your clarifications :rolleyes:

My response was straightforward, he says a digital robin hood isn't needed, and i say tho apparantly a digital fuckup scapegoat is, where i the lack of clarity in that :rolleyes:

but Anonymous have changed haven't they? they never even did public statements before, now all of a sudden they talk to the press

and yes thats the point all of anon is splinter groups anyway thats how it works, they chat in IRC between groups, decide what to do and vote, majority rule wins and they all do the same

Now granted I'm just reading about it from others, as I don't remember the incident well, but the hackers were very adamant about the fact that they were not part of Anonymous; they didn't even frequent 4chan.

As far as WHY they did it, I didn't actually read the statements that led to the attack, and as I said, my memory on the matter is fuzzy. Still, both "groups" are part of the same culture, so it's understandable if gnosis felt the challenge was against all of them... one thing I do remember is their constant "bring them down a peg or two".
