Judging from a report recently posted on Kotaku, it seems that notable hacking group Anonymous is beginning to see cracks in their bedrock and is slowly starting to erode away from within.
haha sony has a inside man
Ha it'd be funny if sony was the idiot making the way over dramatic videos and doing the interviews to make them look like stupid 12 year olds.
Turns out Anonymous was the only ones who didn't.
I see, Sony are doing this like how the U.S goverment sorts thier things out. Divide and conquer. Let them turn on eachother, fight eachother, kill eachother. They will slowly become weaker and weaker. the countrys U.S enter.. Iraq...everyones killing eachother. Afghanistan...everyones killing eachother Pakistan...everyones killing eachother Libya...everyones killing eachother Its the best interest for the enemy to be weaker, then to be unified and become stronger.
there has been trouble in those countries long before the U.S stepped foot in any of them.
Divide and conquer is a useful tactic used by many military forces outside of the US, so spare me the "Holier Than Thou" crap. Do you know what its like to look at the faces of Iraqi parents whose son was beaten to death because he was trying to get a bite to eat? Live in constant fear of death because your village is situated in one of the most dangerous places in the world? It's easy to make the US sound like a bunch of bullies or "The Bad Guys" when all you do is sit at home and listen to the news and read crap like your post but the fact is, we do what we do because everyone else is too bureaucratic/chickensh*t to stand up and do something about it.
My mistake, So when are you going into Zimbabwe to get Robert Mugabe, you know the guy that has killed millions of his own people, his own military raping thier own women, people starving for the past 10 years. Oh right i forgot, theres no incentive for the americans to go there, what has Zimbabwe got to give in return...they have no oil. But Iraq, Libya they have oil dont they lots and lots of it. What about going into Palestine, you know to help the people under siege by Isreal, kids getting no education, dying everyday, people dying daily because of 1 single country. THE US GOVERMENT ARE NEVER HELPING ANYONE OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF THIER HEART, THE US GOVERNMENT IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE CORRUPT AND THE ONLY THINGS THEY ARE LOOKING FOR IS A QUICK BUCK OR FREE OIL.
I applaud you...you are a fierce internet warrior of the greatest proportions. Tell me, what are YOU doing to stop Mugabe since the senseless killing is bothering you so much? ... Thought as much... Oh and i guess Haiti doesn't count huh? Must of been my imagination.
These guys are only proving to me that they dont even know what they are fighting for or if its even right or worth fighting for. This right here is the difference between those with a sense of direction and those without a sense of direction. In other words...this is the difference between proffessional and organized companies and cyber thugs. I am not surprised in the least, that this and things like the store boycott even happens to them in the first place. Expect more nonesense.
Let them kill each other off, survival of the dumbest
Anons are incompetent.
"We are legion" "Maybe you are, but we sure as hell aren't!" "I take issue with our policy, I'm willing to forgive and forget-" "OMG STFU EVERYONE"
There were arrests in this Psn security breach, and interrogations. Its just that none of us will ever ever ever hear about it since its top-confidential.
By your own logic, how do you know? Aren't you one of us?
karma is a bitch
man, i am tired of all this emotional Bull5h!t. why do men act like children, just stop hacking so i can play some [email protected] games online.
It's like making an article about N4G members fighting themselves. Not like anonymous is an organized group. A bunch of people that have a similar interest, some gettig together to do crap and others just hang around to feel cool.
Which is why they can never be view as proffessionals, these guys are just a group of skill hackers with no real sense of direction. The perfect recepeit for disaster, all skill and no dicipline. Such a thing could only lead to more incompetence and excuses. Look, these guys at n4g are just gamers and fanboys who come in here and clash over stupid subjects. However these are hackers with a "quote" cause and are working together for a common goal which now is being questioned by their own. People who come in here dont make threats and shut down networks for the sake of some pointless cause. They have no interest in such, and if they did i am sure wouldnt be on here wasting their time trying to convince those whom will likely ignore them. The nonesense needs to end now. And i think even they are starting to realize this.
I am thinking the whole point of anonymous is that they AREN'T a group. They are basically the voice of the masses. Nothing more, no membership, no leader, no sign up, just people that choose to show up for a cause or not. And nothing will stop because their will always be random people out there with an opinion and idea in their head. And some have the skill to do harm and/or good. As for N4G people... ha we know our house is the looniest of the bunch. You got people calling for the downfall of both MS and Sony. Going on about which FPS shooter is the best and harping on protesting because of some option that isn't included in their version of the game. Sorry N4G posters are no classier then anyone associating themselves with Anonymous. The only reason people care here is that Anonymous has been associated with something that finally hits them where it hurts. And on the other side it gives non-Sony fans something to rag even more on Sony. And yes maybe a few that see the true issue being of Security and who is in control of protecting your data.
Civil Warfare. I like it. The comments on the thinq site are interesting as well. They posted that Ryan guy's location and full name.
This is just only the beginning of the drama I bet. It's more, a lot more coming soon.
@Legion I know they dont have memberships and none of those structural formats in place. By now that much is clear to a lot of people in here. But when you say they are the voice of masses i am thinking you are talking about them speaking out for everyone. If that is indeed the case then judging by this and not to mention of just how many feel about their tactics surely puts another contradiction in this statement. They dont speak for the masses, no one can. Reality is they only speak for their own causes, whatever those maybe. Like i said if they did,then things like these wouldn't be popping up in the first place. And you are right about n4g, but no where did i label the Sony faithful saints. All the fanboys in here the way i see it are equal in many ways, back in 06 and in 07 the xbox crow was loud. Now its the PlayStation crowd, no difference. And though i agreed with your assesment of there being random people out there with a voice and opinions. I never said nonse in general will stop happening, how can it? What i did say however is "this" nonesense needs to stop, and judging by these current events i feel even they are starting realize this as well.
Wooohooo bye bye hacker fags!
so glad this is happening. I hate anonymous
