Don’t get me wrong, I can find the humor in a lot of Anonymous/Lulzsec shenanigans; that being said, I also see the utter ridiculousness of it all. “DOWN WITH THE GOVERNMENT AND ALL YOU 3V1L CORPORATIONS!! FREE BRADLEY!” blahblahblah. Really? I was under the impression that it was strictly for the lulz. “For the lulz” implies NO AGENDA. OpPayPal? I’m wondering if 98% of those kids, undoubtedly sitting in their mommy’s basement, never having seen ANYTHING of the actual world (that’s right, I’m not talking about Norrath), have even stopped to think about what they’re doing. It’s one thing to just be delusional, and figure you’re on some mission that is ultimately destined to “bring down governments everywhere!” I get delusion. I don’t get utter ignorance.
It’s simply hilarious when you see some of these gung-ho kids on Twitter, IRC, and whatnot talking about taking down sheeple, and being the ones who are going to somehow bring justice to the unjust (AIM YOUR LOIC, ANONS!). It would be fantastic if you could wake up and see that you’re being used by a couple asinine-agenda-driven thugs for their own gain (AND LULZ). It’s not some cheeky, internet-forum-driven collaboration for the lulz. It’s purely a campaign- crusade?- against things that most of those involved in the “movement” have never, and will never, fully understand.
Whatever happened to “We are not your personal army?”
Face it dudes, you’ve been had.
