    Link: Anonymous Responds To Sony`s Accusation - This feud doesn`t bode well for Sony. If Sony protected subscribers as they do content PSN would be running now.

    i didn`t bother reading it all, so maybe i`m wrong, but how can one from anon say that anon didn`t do it, when they are all anonymous?

    If someone breaks into an office building and steels records and files he would be a criminal and arrested.

    So why do so many people consider the guys who break in and steel ONLINE to be heros?

    Anonymous? and WikiLeaks are just thugs, not social Robin Hoods.

    The most important bit is where they say Sony breaches the PCI laws by not having their credit card system unpatched and firewalled. So basically, it`s their own fault, and they`re suing Anonymous as an excuse.

    So Gerry, what do call it when corporation do it to us?

    Considering that they (the corporations) use (steal, mine, or sell) any and all information regarding transactions and "click" of ads and or online purchases. And if you believe that their claim of secure transaction is secure, then your full of it.

    All corporations want is money, and they`ll do anything to get it. Including lies, bribes and other means to get "their" money. And anything that protects these greedy bastards, should be taken down.

    Anonymous has no need for Sony customer information. They`re not a criminal organization that steals credit card numbers. Would be nice to think someone with a big brain at the Sony corporation would know that..

    I like anonymous. A lot of their operations seem to be attacking bigots (i.e. the Hal Turner raid), or in support of good political agendas (e.g. Operation Egypt).

    Of course they can be dicks too, but overall, I think it`s good to have an anonymous force that can bring a bit of justice to otherwise unjust areas, even at the expense of porn on Youtube.
    If you call that an expense of course :L

    Do you really think they are all anonymous? I doubt it. I`m sure that once you`re "in", you know who else is "in". Chances are, if someone in Anonymous did it, the others would know about it or could find out who did it.

    There`s no such thing as `in`. There`s no membership. Anyone can say they`re in it at any time. And I doubt anybody has ever given out their real info online, and remember they`re behind 7 proxies etc...

    Sony has been practicing douchebaggery for years now, It`s finally caught up to them and now they are having a tantrum over it like a baby.

    I quit buying anything with the `Sony` name on it decades ago, Same with anything `Apple`.

    Anonymous is more organized than that. As a whole, they didn`t do it. There was no forum of "hey lets f*ck up psn" like there would normally be when Anon decides to attack something. If one person or a small group did it, Anon didn`t know it was going to happen. And no, they`re not all anonymous to the rest of the group. It`s not like everyone knows everyone else but for the most part they at least know a handful of other anons.

    To bring to light a negativity, with a negativity, is still negative. I admire the tenacity of Anon, and I admire what they`re doing in the face of corrupt corporations, but they would get a lot more done (and go down in history) if they came out of their basements and admitted it was them. I truly feel that they`d inspire more people to do the right thing and stand up for once, if we knew who they were. This just looks...childish. Also, they would likely be taken more seriously.

    ITT: people who don`t know what anonymous is or how it works. You don`t `join` anon, and be `in`. Of course, if Anon really did do it, they would be boasting about it. Not publicly of course, but the *chans and TOR would be covered with bragging rights. Check them out, and what do you see? Anon bitching about how they can`t play Nazi Zombies online cuz PSN is down. Just like every other person who owns a PS3.

    Anonymous said that they`d plot revenge on Sony for what they did to Geohotz because they thought it was unethical and went on some random rant about how people should be able to hack anyone, anytime. But I guess blaming Sony is TOTALLY the thing to do...

    If you want to fight the corporations, please do it on your own terms on your own time, why F*ck with millions of people for no reason, I could careless why you hate what some one stands for, but don`t drag everyone into with you. Aside from attacking sony, unless the only other motive was "because we could" then your just douche bags, congratulations claim your prize and enjoy your basement.

    (goes for all hackers, not just anon, You want to do something meaningful, good for you, even better if you can break something down with out collateral damage)

    I think its just Sony trying to pass the blame. Anonymous is the only group Sony could use to shift the focus from "Why does Sony have irresponsible business practices?" to "Hackers! It was all the hackers fault!"

    This I`d endorse, its neither a claim at being anything nor a direct threat but merely a summary of facts. Having one turd whip out a letter on behalf of the collective is one thing...this is something else, this is merely a "food for thought" statement.
