Anonymous Responds To Black Ops 2 Trailer, ‘We Are Not Terrorists’

Online hacktivist group which goes by the collective name "Anonymous" responded to a trailer for the upcoming shooter videogame "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" which portrays the organization as the enemy of the United States, with a YouTube video of their own in which they threatened to hack Activision, the entertainment company behind the game, defacing their website and disrupting their online servers.

‘We Are Not Terrorists’

You've proven otherwise over and over and over...

GanjaMan1924d ago

but the biggest "terrorist" of them all is the government!

Dark_Overlord1924d ago

Totally agree, but since they're the ones who make the laws, they can easily make themselves look innocent and justify all the things they do

Dark_Overlord1924d ago

You do realise there is no hierarchy in anonymous? Anyone can use the name and commit whatever acts they feel like, just because someone claims to be from anonymous doesn't necessarily mean they represent the views of other 'members' (and I use that term loosely)

Pintheshadows1924d ago

The older I get the more ridiculous 'anyone can use the name and commit whatever acts they feel like' sounds. So those people are anonymous. You can't say the ones that do good are but the ones that do bad aren't.

Stop painting imaginary noble ideals onto the organisation.

I never said who was good or bad, just you can't hold the whole of anonymous accountable for other peoples actions.

By your logic you're saying that if one person commits an act under a name then the whole organisation/company should be held accountable?

An example would be the recent Luis Suarez/Patrice Evra incident

Due to the nature of anonymous i'm afraid that is the case. It isn't a business or Liverpool FC. There are no official channels.

there still blaming Guy Fawkes for terrorism after all these years....oh wait its a hipster wearing a mask complaining about his rights and freedom.

Emilio_Estevez1925d ago

I think most consider them 'cyber-terrorists', as would I. I'm not sure how they could think otherwise. Activists don't steal.

TekoIie1925d ago

The definition of terrorism says otherwise:

"The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes"

I don't think it takes a genius to look at the actions of Anon and the relation they have to terrorism...

Since the PSN hack last year, I find it hard to agree with Anon. Realistically Anon should be putting their combined efforts into finding out which individuals profiited from the Iraq war and the overthrowing of Gadaffi. They should be helping Julian Assange by finding facts to help free him. Finding the truth about why Osama was burried as if he was Megatron.

However, if Activision has been dumb enough to play with fire, then we as gamers, them as Activision should not be surprised if they get burnt. Why would you want to risk shit like this knowing what this group is capable of doing?

"Finding the truth about why Osama was burried as if he was Megatron. "

Made my day +bubbles

They have done some good things in the past (well not "good" but the RIGHT things) like with Westborough baptist church but we have to remember 1 simple thing. The group that hacked PSN is not the same group that went after Westborough.

The OPSony group were dumb idiots who didnt even think through what they were trying to accomplish and how they would accomplish their objective. This is also why I believe they've responded to Activision in such a way that proves they are cowardly terrorists. Releasing the CEO's personal info is too far...

Ask any terrorist if they are terrorists and they will say: no, we are freedom fighters.
