I love them. They're (were) fighting for a great cause and you'd be crazy not to support them. They expose the evils of corporate greed and poor government conduct. And the hacked the WBCs site twice XD

From what I've seen of them I think they're okay. They like to "dig up the dirt" that people think they could / should get away with.

Why the hell does it say banned by your name? I didn't ban you. O.o

Edit: Anybody help? It won't let me un-ban skymto. I went to modify the ban list, and clicked skymto's name but nothing happened, the name is still banned. Wtf. Glitch?

Hey skymto, you're unbanned. :D

Not that it really matters since the debate is pretty much over. But thought I'd let you know.

They rock for exposing evil. .

I support them, of course, due to their anarchic nature and I like their causes. In fact, I actual frequent 4chan (/wg/, /mu/, /vp/, and /x/). /b/ isn't at all as bad as people presume.

I love reading about hacking in the news.

"Anonymous does not exist. It is just an idea, that can be appropriated by anyone at any time to rally for a common cause that is in the benefit of human kind."

They're great. I wish they had a permanent "Delete All Trolls Forever" button. One can only wish.

Anonymous is an idea. Idea defines as the aim or purpose both of which are good, they are not all hackers they are not all sweaty nerds in there parents basement. They are an idea fighting to expose corruption fuck censorship and speak/spread truth.

Side: Love Them / They're Okay

Indifferent because I have been given no reason to have an opinion about anonymous.

Side: Hate Them / Indifferent

After seeing all the debate I have got to thinking and I now know this is not an abstract question it's about the hackers.

I don't like hackers, they hit a little too close to home. Right now they are attacking pedophiles and criminals but with their knowledge they could easily be attacking whoever they want.

I do not support vigilantism.

Anonymous is pretty laid back, most aren't going to just maliciously hack at random. There's always a reason for their escapades, one that nearly always has them in a good light.

To me it's not about have they or haven't they, it's about can they.

In the position of power they are in no one can stop them.

It's the same with a kind dictator. They are being good but there is no measures in place to ensure that they stay that way.

I support vigilantism to some degree, because there are some areas the police can't go. Like hacking, and to some extent even patrolling. There is a fine border between a vigilante and an outright criminal, and the police can stop them from getting out of hand.

The places the police can't go they can be trained to go. If the skills exist there is a way to teach them. Still the case remains that we never know completely how good their intentions are.
