Is Anonymous still around?

I was just checking the news on most of my favorite web sites and it hit me, what has become of Anonymous? They used to be in the news almost constantly but I never hear about them anymore.

They're still on twitter, ranting away, playing the holier than thou card

It's the same on Facebook. Honestly, judging by what they post, it's mostly anti-capitalist rants written by those who have never worked a day in their life and don't understand the concept of money and why it's valued.

Well I posted this last night and I get up this morning and there is a large article about Anonymous on Yahoo news this morning. They are warning about World War 3.

I've worked a few years but I still don't understand the concept of money and why it's valued.

Doesn't that scare you, when you're talking about something somewhere and suddenly ads and news and other media start talking about it ? If I had more time on my hand I'd be a conspiracy theorist.

 

World War 3 ? Aren't they about the last ones to warn us about that ? Plus, the Korea thing is on the news everywhere, I don't think we needed those guys to hear about it.

Yes it does. Another instance. Last weekend my older brother and his wife came by to see us for a visit. While here he asked me if I heard from our sister. I said the last time I heard from he was around January when my other brother was in the hospital with an aneurysm. I may see her every year or two and she never answers her email. Less then 3 minutes later the phone rang, you guessed it, it was our sister calling to wish me a happy birthday which had already passed.

 

Late last year I was telling my wife that is was about time for her mother to call. A soon as I finished saying the last word of that sentence the phone rang, it was her mother calling.

Hello,

 

They are around, but the things they do are not necessarily as notable.  Keep in mind that Anonymous is a movement, with lots of people doing different things under its banner.  It's not like there's a monolithic, top-down management layer of executives coordinating their work product.  I was watching a group of them coordinate shelters  and temporary housing for homeless people during the winter in one country--that's not exactly the sort of thing that generates Lizard Squad and Sabu levels of media coverage.

 

Regards,

 

Aryeh Goretsky

Sorry my minions, I havent kept up with the social media thing lately, but ANON is alive and well.  Me & some of the ladies over @ LOLCATZ, and some old timers @ INC were out of town.  We went to follow Justin Beiber around on his world tour.

I know that might come as a shock to some of you - we have that whole - RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE thing going, but in real life - its all BEEBS ! (oh, and Katy Perry too)

We decided to gather the forces for some DDOS attacks, joined up & decided to attack LulzSec's myspace page - we put a giant red X on their main page - it was so neat ! 

Oh - I forgot to talk in 1337speak...

What I meant was:
