Lights out: ‘Anonymous’ hackers to take down the Internet this Saturday


Notorious hacker group Anonymous has previously stated its intentions to shutdown the Internet on Saturday, March 31st, as a form of protest. “To protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of sheer sadistic fun, on March 31, anonymous will shut the Internet down,” the group stated last month. “Remember, this is a protest, we are not trying to ‘kill’ the Internet we are only temporarily shutting it down where it hurts the most.”

CATASTROPHE! Then again, maybe not.

    As nonsensical as their predictions of global warming.

    April Fools?

    These guys can’t even manage to take out girls.  What makes them think they are going to be able to take out the entire net?

    If they really wanted to do harm… they would attempt it on a Friday when everyone is at work, businesses are on line and Wall Street 1%ers would be the intended victims… Guess they really don’t want to get kicked out of mommy basement after all.

    April Fools joke if anything.

    Even a thousand angry nerds in their Mom’s basement suckin’ on Mountain Dews and chowing down Doritos trying to ‘shut down’ the entire World-Wide-Web couldn’t do it — online. They could certainly slow things up in spotty areas though.

    So this is what slipping into irrelevancy looks like….

    I’m still wondering why these folks don’t put OhBummer’s documents on the internet, starting with his college records, his passports, when and where he procured a SS card etc….maybe they’re all talk?
