Anonymous is going to attempt to take down the UN, Xbox Live, US Bank, Capital One, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

I like how the name Anonymous went from being "and bunch of dumbasses on 4chan" to "the group opposing Scientology" to "an elite hacker group", and everywhere in between.

Seriously make up your own damn name.

Yeah, yeah. Hacker schadenfreude.

More important than that:

Why don't the lines on that popcorn bucket look right?
avatar Captain Terror says: 23rd January 2012, 00:29 AM
now i'm hungry for popcorn, ty.
avatar X-LAyer2 says: 23rd January 2012, 00:30 AM
@Strider I saw that too, can't put my finger on it...
avatar Madcow says: 23rd January 2012, 00:41 AM
Because they aren't aligned properly with the angle of the container? And the bottom left corner looks very odd.

Good luck taking youtube or facebook down. I imagine those servers can handle quite a lot.

Aliasing is a bitch.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 07:25 AM
Bunch of little whiny kids.

Having no idea what they are doing. I look at anonymous as a retard squad of emo kids.
avatar Lajron says: 23rd January 2012, 08:33 AM
@Stojke kids with big BRAINs
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 08:47 AM
Wow, it takes a really big brain to DDOS a server, wow.

If those little kiddies even knew how to do anything serious they wouldnt be risking it doing crap like this.

Mega upload knew damn well they had pirated software onto it, and they knew that is getting them rich. Now other people that want to get rich are in war with host companies. Nothing new.
Not my thing to get involved, plus i dont give a damn if they shut down all web hosts that have piracy. I still have hosts that host non-piracy and torrents :trollface:
avatar Lajron says: 23rd January 2012, 09:06 AM
This :troll
But some torrents have illegal stuff ._.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 09:13 AM
Torrenting is something you do on your own risk, and you do it because you know the risks. If you get busted, you're busted.

Too many people doing what they shouldn't, no wonder SOPA is considered seriously. They feel vulnerable, and when a powerful person feels vulnerable, it does anything to stop you.
avatar Lajron says: 23rd January 2012, 09:15 AM
The power of the STOJKE over 9000 damn..
You win with explaining
avatar Captain Terror says: 23rd January 2012, 09:33 AM
Stojke: for a person that spends as much time on the internet as you, it's raelly sad to listen to you be indifferent and/or pro sopa and pro goverment control/censorship of the web. Seriously. =/
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 09:47 AM
My Internet time is usually from 2 to 4 hours a day, max. Well, some times more when im researching something.

Dont get me wrong, i am not for SOPA, but i do agree that some things need to be deleted/removed/blocked.
People cant just blindly follow one thing with out thinking.
avatar Captain Terror says: 23rd January 2012, 09:54 AM
I can't think of one thing good that will come out of censoring/policing web content for the end user. What really scares me though are all the things i can't think of, that will be really bad.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 10:01 AM
Ive seen people posting tutorials on how to do things that are made to look interesting and safe, but are intended to seriously wound or kill a person.
I am sickened of these things when i see them, when i see some one masking a death plan into a technical document, lying about things that can injure one.
How many times i saw an electronics project that has noted to touch the part where the main voltage is...

If it takes total censorship of Internet to stop these sick people i am for it. Not to mention what kind of things ive seen when i heard about 4chan /b/.
Internet is not for those who will abuse it. Nothing is.
avatar Captain Terror says: 23rd January 2012, 10:08 AM
To say you are going to censor the entire WWW because 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
00001% of people are using it for psychopathic purposes?

Honestly, i couldn't disagree with your logic on this more, but i feel we should opt to agree to disagree, since i don't see either of our viewpoints changing.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 10:37 AM
Even a slightly threat needs to be blocked. Imagine your kid discovering something like that, for an example - Making crystals with bleach.
Instant poisoning/death.

And what do you consider censorship? They will not censure something like facebook or wikipedia. Your point of view is either nothing or total.
I did say i dont agree with SOPA and American try at controlling everything.

I said i want these things to be blocked and removed.
avatar Jessie says: 23rd January 2012, 11:14 AM
(Just in case anyone's wondering (like I did), the percentage of people CT said comes out to about 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000007 people. WAAAY less than one person.)
avatar Striker says: 23rd January 2012, 14:13 PM
Oh my god Stojke, that's even worse logic. I've seen chemistry tutorials and I applied some of them. It's a matter of being stupid and not knowing what the protection rules are and doing it consciously.
If you're not preventive or at least don't consider some protection rules it means you're ignorant and deserved the accident if it happened. It's another story if you didn't know about the protection rules, but that's how humans learn damn it, FROM MISTAKES.

You're basically implying a society where every part of knowledge that somewhat would relate to self-injury or injury of other be banned. In this case, as an analogy, why not have knife experts and knives be banned? Every time we have to cut something we'd have to go to an expert shop. After all, knives are way more accessible and dangerous than dangerous substances.

You see, this is a very sensitive problem and can't be resolved by simply saying no or yes. Think about FREE KNOWLDEGE! We don't want to get to the point of an idiocracy.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 14:25 PM

I think i was perfectly clear there when i said it was made to deliberately injure some one.
What i see from your comment is you going rage because i said censorship is a good thing.

Of course humans learn from mistakes, how many times did i, but when something is made to KILL you, and made in a way so it looks perfectly safe, thats not right.
I have no interest into deep chemistry, nor does it interest me the slightest, but when you see a neatly made tutorial, with all the steps explained, with nice after effect pictures you think its all right. But what you don't know is that the gases made from it can be lethal.

I am implying that some things are not for some people and that those things should not be available to some people. I am also implying that too many kids are viewing twisted things on the internet, who knows how will that affect them latter in life.

Next time read posts with understanding.


Also. about the thing of "The whole internet is against SOPA" is 100% wrong. Have you seen any Chinese, Russian, etc complain about it? No? Think about it a little.
It will only affect America and some websites in other regions. Which will be restored latter probably.
avatar Jessie says: 23rd January 2012, 14:41 PM
So either kids would be making them TO hurt others, which they could do anyway, or they are not parented well enough to know not to fuck with chemicals and the like. I don't really have a point, I think.

Frankly kids would be all round better off with no access to the internet. Like, at all. In any way. But hey, too late for that kind of thinking.

"Have you seen any Chinese, Russian, etc complain about it?"
I figure most members' browsing of Chinese and Russian sites likely makes up about 0% of their total browsing.

So they can't shut down all the illegal online gambling sham websites that take the average man's money, but they're trying their heart out to stop RICHER people having slightly lower profits.
avatar Striker says: 23rd January 2012, 15:12 PM
By Crystals do you mean meth? Well, yes, I agree on that part. But that's an exceptionally dangerous substance to us and as such, it's an exception. That's why it's not easy to say no or yes to some knowledge.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 15:48 PM
No, not meth, normal crystals like salt crystals... Not drugs lol. Why would a kid want to make drugs?

I know what are you trying to say, but some things really arent for some people, and thats why im all da fuq is this shit with Anonymous organization.

I agree with scotch when it comes to internet, only use it with a parent, until the child learns how to behave online and what to do.

Its interesting how sophisticated Russian internet is. Their entire cities are rigged into a giant lan network where they can access anything from their block servers. They are completely cut off from the rest of us, they have their own Facebook (Vkontakte), their own chat programs that they use ( QIP, ICQ ), everything is only for them. A ton of forums/websites/everything.

They couldnt care less about SOPA.
I bet if SOPA passed, my country leaders would just suck up and do something about it here.
avatar Captain Terror says: 23rd January 2012, 15:52 PM
That sounds really interesting Stojke, like a gian intranet or darknet sorta?
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 17:36 PM
Well, they do have access to all of what we can see, and we can access all of they can see, but 90% of it is not on google, and somethings are restricted to Russia only.
They have these Block Servers that are in every city on each city block, and from them they can get any file they want that the server is hosting, Anime, movies, programs, games, etc. Piracy is an every day thing, foreign software is pirated like crazy, even hosting companies, internet providers, give users a Torrent server, and an upload server.
QIP file sharing website has ton of EVERYTHING, from programs, to movies, to pictures, to all kinds of junk/stuff.

Basically, their internet has no restrictions, they are completely free to do what they want.
avatar Striker says: 23rd January 2012, 18:44 PM
I was in such a LAN 3 years ago. Then most of us switched to broadband.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 19:27 PM
They have internet speeds from 10Mb to 100Mb. As i heard, block server masters have 1Gb/s
avatar Crollo says: 23rd January 2012, 21:12 PM
What have you done to my journal Stojke. Why.
avatar Stojke says: 23rd January 2012, 21:57 PM
Hmm, hmm... Look at your avatar and ask your question again :)
avatar Soup Miner says: 23rd January 2012, 23:24 PM
Wait a minute...
That popcorn bucket sure does look odd.
avatar Jessie says: 24th January 2012, 00:15 AM
'Cause the lines on the sides of the bucket go straight up instead of angled with the container.
avatar Soup Miner says: 24th January 2012, 02:50 AM
My joke was not well-received.
avatar Jessie says: 24th January 2012, 04:05 AM
No, it wasn't. I took the literal path.

I dont see anything here that warrants a bucket of popcorn. Or a fan-o-war.

"Why would a kid want to make drugs?"

Nobody picked up on this gem, huh?
avatar Jessie says: 25th January 2012, 05:12 AM
Yeah, forgot to comment on that one. Kids don't take drugs, that'd be stupid. Right?
avatar Stojke says: 25th January 2012, 08:43 AM
When i said kid i meant <12 years.
avatar Jessie says: 26th January 2012, 01:00 AM
You'd be suprised.
