Anonymous threatens Activision
« on: May 10, 2012, 01:11:56 pm »
Anonymous has a beef with Activision now. Why? It’s because of the Black Ops 2 trailer that was released recently. The trailer which you can see here, portrays the Anonymous organization as the enemy of the United States, which has pissed them off greatly.

They have released their own video in which they threaten to hack Activision and to disrupt their online servers. They have managed to ‘dox’ Activsion’s CEO Eric Hirshberg, and are threatening to cause a lot of damage to the company’s infrastructure.

Well they are at it again. I guess since I don't honestly care about CoD anymore I didn't realize they used anonymous as a terrorist organization.  It will be interesting to see if they actually go through with this let alone pull it off.  ::Gets Popcorn::

Why aren't they destroying Activision NOW? They clearly have the lack of morality.

Anonymous is pissed off for being portrayed as a bunch of terrorists, so they respond by threatening acts of terrorism.

That said, I've stopped trying to anticipate what people around here want a while ago, I've found it makes things smoother.

I watched the trailer, and I seriously don't see how it portrays anonymous as the game's enemy.  There was just a reference to hackers.  Since when is every hacker in the world part of anonymous?  I honestly think they're jumping to conclusions and overreacting.

Anyways, what would be a better representative of hackers?

I'm with TGRWulf, I don't see anything about Anonymous in that trailer.  Vague allusions to bad guy hackers do not make me think of Anonymous at all.  It makes me think of John Travolta.

I'm I the only one that can see someone at Activision smiling and saying, "Yup, they fell for it."?

I'll have to bring this up to my dad later. He thinks Anonymous is actually a CIA-run organization that pulls false-flag attacks to convince the public that we have to ban the internet and that Ron Paul is dumb. He came to this conclusion after some anons hacked the website and email of a neo-Nazi Ron Paul fanboy with close ties to his inner circle.

I think you should tell some Anons about your dad and see what they do. So much potential there for lulz to be had.
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

He tends to be very paranoid that the government could be spying on him. Once, he somehow ended up on a no-fly list and he was coincidentally posting 9/11 truth stuff on Upoc at the time. He immediately started scouring the house for bugs.

Once the network was running slow and my dad said that the government was stalling his internet because he "knew the TROOF."

He has gold stashes around the house, but we aren't allowed to talk about them anywhere because there might be government agencies listening to us.

He won't go to a psychologist, a psychiatrist, or even just a general therapist because they work for Big Pharma and most of them aren't even 9/11 truthers.

Now he has covered up all the webcams on his computers with Post-its or duct tape, just in case the government decides to spy on his bald sweaty forehead.

Yeah, Anonymous could mess with him... but there's always the possibility that he could somehow snap more than he already has and do something dangerous.
