    Right, but two years earlier, revolutionaries dressed up as Indians during the Boston Tea Party in 1773, to hide their true identities. Anonymity hard at work. :)

    The Tea Party caused Britain to respond by sending in Gage to terminate self-government of Massachusetts.

    By the time John Patrick Henry made his speech in the open in March of 1775, Gage was already in country, self government in Massachusetts had been terminated by him.

    So at the time Patrick Henry gave his speech, Britain had already seized one state and made their intentions very clear; if the unrest continued they would terminate all self government. They also decided to seize arms and military supplies. Which turned out to be the final straw.

    Anonymous is a global Hacktivist group.... They are activists who get their point across by hacking computer systems... They have hacked both the CIA and FBI's computer systems as well as a bunch of other stuff... Generally their work is highly sophisticated and nobody has been able to track their activity down to anybody.

    They actually made Time Mags top 100 most influential people list, but it is thought that they hacked Time's computers and put them selves on the list and Time is too embarrassed to admit it.

    I can't wait to see what they do with that new New York State assault rifle database. :)

    Better hope those idiot programmers remember to put in anti-SQL injection and check all their input buffers to protect against overflows.

    Otherwise all those registered rifles just might get "reassigned" to one certain "Cuomo, Andrew M.", who would then find himself on the uncomfortable side of the "10 gun limit" - by the tune of 999,990 or so.

    Anonymous is amazingly effective when they point themselves at something.

    The only real problem is that, with a lack of leadership, anyone can claim to be acting for Anonymous, and it's up to them to police that.

    Some of them are, indeed, people living in their parents' basements. Many more are students. No small number are programmers, very competent hackers and, I'm sure, in-men. It doesn't mean that they're less for the basement dwellers and students. These are just the guys they use to DDOS the Scientologist machines into silence, or go and pass out fliers and hold pickets. Or just keep an ear on the populous sites that Anonymous speaks most freely in.

    As a whole, they're fairly adamant about promoting freedom of all sorts and rooting out corruption. "Those with nothing to hide have nothing to fear" has held up surprisingly well so far, and that's a very rare thing. I personally expect the 'group' to be short-lived as far as an effective force goes.

    I agree with Trent here. A couple intent members could very well get into and rearrange a government database. New York could find itself with databases full of pictures of butts or something. They have thus far avoided going quite that far because they don't particularly like to get quite that far on the FBI's bad side.

    To be completely honest, I would very much expect one of them to poke into one and start releasing lists of what big-wigs have what guns, that Joe Average can't own.

    Releasing information is one of the things Anon does hilariously best. They once hacked several popular pornographic websites and got the emails of everyone with an account, filtered them for .gov's, and released a list of government employees with porn site accounts. I'm sure they could figure something like that out for guns.

    yep.. the Dems of that time were so intimidated they just put a little thing called the Lautenburg amendment on IIRC and appropriations bill in the dead of night. The repub were too gutless then as well to reject it and pass only a clean bill.

    Anonymous knows that governments abuse their citizens. That is one of the reason for their existence. In a sense, they are doing covertly what the ACLU does for 9 out of the 10 amendments. Let's just hope that they start doing things... like exposing NRA endorsed candidates who are waiting for Sandy Hook-like episodes to flip flop.
