This is getting ridiculous. Leave people alone, Anonymous.

agreed.almost all of their hacking with the exception of maybe a few were pointless hacks on random organisations for no apparent reason. i don't know what they are trying to prove with these hacks they are just begging to be caught at this rate.

PayPal/Ebay pulled it on themselves when Ebay bought out PayPal. Forcing users to use PayPal for Ebay and in an nutshell only using it to charge 2x the fees over all. F*** em.

Ridiculous . You dont even need to use Ebay to begin with , it's a service not some right . And there are counterparts available .

They are just mad that Paypal closed down accounts for a few controversial sites and services , in anticipation of issues , as within their right

what good does hacking paypal do, apart from stealing people's information "for the greater good"?
Petro  +   662d ago
They didn't hack PayPal directly tho.
ziggurcat  +   662d ago
what difference does that make? it certainly doesn't make the theft of information any better...
zerocrossing  +   662d ago
Well PayPal is owned by ebay, ebay has been accused and sued for the theft of information before, not to mention screwing over many ebay sellers and costing people their lively hood.

so yeah screw those guys.
ziggurcat  +   662d ago
okay... but how does stealing the average user's information, people who haven't done a thing wrong to cause anonymous' misguided wrath = screw those corporate ebay scoundrels?

no one here has yet to say how hacking a site to steal user information benefits society in any way, shape or form.

I've been hearing this quote in recent weeks: "Live long enough and you'll see yourself as the villain,"

I guess Anonymous is starting to become a perfect example of that quote.

Nice, but the exact quote is:
"You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain". Its from The Dark Knight film, said by Harley Dent.

Thanks. I'm referring the Disney bought LucasArt meme with the shortened version of the quote but it's good to know about the full version.
