I have seen about a dozen opinion articles in the past day or two criticizing the logic behind Anonymous' actions, and questioning their motives. It should be obvious that they are some deprived children craving for attention, yet, the press continues to cover them. By now, they have heard the gaming community cry out that we are the ones actually being effected by their actions, and they don't seem to care. In fact, it boosts their ego, reinforces their attempts to get attention, and they continue to deliver more content.
Their name is anonymous. It could be anyone. We are not in the right to assume that their motives are noble, and that they actually care whose lives they ruin; after all, what do you learn a skill like hacking to achieve in the first place?
