|Kat Wrote:Anonymous aren't exactly synonymous with 'net censorship... I'd put them more on the other side. They take down websites, yes, but those generally seem to be sites of large corporations that Anonymous feels are getting too big for their britches. A show of muscle, as it were, with a point to it. Not even remotely close to 'net censorship. I could more see them taking down sites of corporations who support 'net censorship, actually.
(I'd heard something a while back that they supposedly were ready to take on one of the drug cartels. I wanna say it was the Zetas too; they're one of the nastier ones. Apparently the cartel kidnapped one of Anonymous' people... Anonymous retaliated by saying "if he's not let go, we know who you are and we publish it; good luck staying alive once all your rivals know exactly who you are." I never heard what came of it, but I always wanted it to be a Jason Statham movie...)
I know. I wasn't associating the "anonymous as a villain" idea with my net censorship idea. Right now the big thing is Operation PedoChat, they're trying to take down websites that serve as hotbeds for the fraternization of child pornographers.
But, back on the subject of rping. I'm very sorry I didn't post yesterday. I had the post written, but not uploaded, and this morning my pc unexpectedly broke down. I'm writing this post painstakingly from my cell phone, and right now it's inconvenient to write large rp posts, although for an interim replacement I'll be getting a laptop case for my iPad tomorrow and I'll use that to start the game.
And Kat, maybe its be cool if the RP was about a hacker collective very similar to anonymous, but as the good side? As in the characters we play get involved in an anonymous style web operation, so things that they do like DDoS attacks and other means of web vigilantism are personified under a TRON theme? I think that would be very cool. Thoughts?
