i was going to do the whole Antwan dodson thing, but this isnt /b/
Simmons wanted a response to what he said, not sure if annon's attack was the response he wanted, but he is using it to his advantage (to get more media coverage).Krion_Vark said:So saying how things could have been handled warranted an attack?
I do not support annon's attack nor do I support Simmons desperate use of his fading fame to sell more product.Krion_Vark said:And you are supporting this.
If I deliberately tried to attract attention to myself by making provocative statements about suing most of the teenage population, I would have to accept both the upside and downside of that attention (especially when dealing with such an immature and vindictive demographic).Krion_Vark said:So if you had a site and said something 4Chan did not like and they attacked your site you wouldn't be pissed and want to take them down?
Simmons has no 'resources' or skills on the 'net. His area of expertese is in self promotion.Krion_Vark said:Seriously Anon has decided to go after someone who has A LOT of resources and money he is not going to go down without a fight.
Yes, contrary to what most believe, Anonymous is one of the most multicultural society on the internets (not on the surface anyway) Anons are White, Black, Yellow etc. Anonymous may be evil, but in the end they are USUALLY taking down people who deserve it.olikunmissile said:Sorry FBI, you'll lose this one, you don't have the man power to track thousands of individuals all over the world, most of them are out of your jurisdiction.
Set sail for fail
Exactly (hence the Payback in Operation Payback...)JoJo Bizzaro 7 said:I hate people. I really do.
I you recall, it was the music companies that instigated the conflict with an illegal DDoS-ing of the Pirate Bay. Operation Payback is simply retribution to the cheap-ass, hedonistic members of the industry who are afraid to lose a single penny.
There's a whole lot of things wrong there, i'll start from the top, Trolls in the internet sense, have as much or as little power as moderators give them, they cannot 'destroy' computer networks, this would take physical actions of violence, they can however overload servers as a demonstration, in Gene's case, it was a demonstration that one cannot simply ruin the lives of others because they're outted a few dollars that they otherwise don't need to survive. The music industry as is, has gotten this far by refusing to convert to the times, like the news papers are, they're slowly dying and the few industrious newer trypes are coming out and starting E-papers, this is a natural progression of technology into society, if piracy didn't exist, in theory, music companies could charge whatever they wanted for music, because there is no alternative, especially for lables that have no iTunes stores.Azaraxzealot said:sigh.... it has nothing to do with any of THAT, what it DOES have to do with is that Trolls have too much power. since the world practically runs on computers, and people like these trolls have clearly demonstrated that they can destroy any computer network they want, i worry that if they just keep being allowed to do what they do without regulation, we could see our next president being a lolcat...viper3 said:
