"Anonymous" Hacks Palin's Private Email

creysoft Re:The crossed the line this time (1733 comments)

What the hell are you talking about? Anonymous the name attributed to (and embraced by) the many and varied denizens of 4chan's Random (/b/) board. They rose to fame with their protests against scientology, but anyone who has ever visited /b/ could tell you that:

1) Anonymous is a 'group' only in the loosest sense of the word. There's no organization, no leader, and no real agenda. It works more like flash mobs. One person suggests something, and if enough people go along with it to achieve critical mass, then it's epic. Otherwise, it's just a few internet nerds making idiots out of themselves.

2) Anonymous has no real code, moral stance, or ethical guideline. /b/ frequently delves into such subjects as drug use, murder, petty crime, and child porn.

3) Anonymous does everything they do for their very own personal amusement. Any claim to be standing on principle is really just part of the joke. Since anonymous is kind of an intersection of Slashdot and MySpace when it comes to demographics, you'll find you agree with many of their 'positions.' However, don't expect any real loyalty from them.

Appeals Court Overturns Software Patents.

creysoft creysoft writes  |  more than 5 years ago

creysoft (856713) writes "The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has issued a ruling which effectively overturns State Street and eviscerates software, process, and business method patents. While the ruling will most certainly be challenged, as the panicked patent attorney correctly states, this is a great day for open source."
