This article got me to thinking a bit. What say you? I've been following this on twitter from the beginning (@tans007) and while I don't think they initially wanted to play a large role, it seems like they are getting more involved by the day.

Whoever wants to play can play. It wasn't started by them.

"This is a new way to protest. Many of us have done our fair share of street protesting. But they drag us into the streets, and they mace us. Now we have brought our protests into the online social media space. We do it all at once – the street protesting along with our distributed denial of service [DDoS] attacks. We are a bit of an online flash mob."

Denial of Service and mob rule are not things I can currently get behind.

In Philly we've been having senseless, violent, teen flash mobs. It's often asked, why can't we use this power for the Good?

So are you saying anonymous gets to determine who the right people to fuck with are?

Well, they talk about it pretty openly, don't they? I'm pretty sure you could have a say if you were so inclined.

I have no idea how they run things but I doubt my, or any other individual, having a say would be the determining factor.
