Hmm, that would come from... 7chan, is it?

4chan doesn't have an invasion board, and that's the one I'm familiar with, though they have an "Anonymous" ("Anonymous does not forgive" etc.), and individual members will sometimes hack a MySpace account, publicly spoil Harry Potter or raid the Habbo Hotel, though a lot of these were individuals, or small groups with the rest of /b/ just saying "We're not your personal army, you want lulz, go do it yourself, not interested."

I find it a little odd - 4chan is nowhere near as bad as they're making it out to be (though I know, Fox News is already a bit iffy), so I'm wondering if it's 7chan*, and they're using a whole bunch of 4chan memes.

Though I found an amusing quote on 4chan:

"I now completely understand the credible link between the threat of MySpace account hacks and nuclear car bombs. Thanks, Fox, for keeping me safe!"

*When the mods enforced rules on 4chan (no organizing of invasions/raids, no child pornography etc. Sensible rules that should need saying, basically), the banned troublemakers left and made their own site, 7chan.

tl;dr? It sounds a lot like Fox News overreacting in a need for something to report on.

With all due respect to victims of internet bullies, I smell a lot of hype and typical Fox bullshit here.

The trend of people finding someone on the net and harassing them is disturbing, but it's nothing that wouldn't exist before, in the era of telephone pranks and such.

It's stupid how Fox is spinning a bunch of immature people who should get sued for harassment into 'terrorists', 'hackers' and people you need to defend your home from.
I'm sure that after the report, some 'anonymous' bomb threats will become much more credible and they'll be very happy for the clout they got.

I'm an avid 4-channer, and they're making us out to be worse then we really are. X_O. Not ALL of us Anon's are like that.

You little bugger!
I was wondering where the teeth marks were appearing from!

Aha! My research has found the answer!

One guy wanted 4chan/7chan/420chan/whatever to help hack/raid the girl he was stalking. Anonymous replied "We are not your personal army. GTFO."

He could have just shut up there and sought help for his stalker issues. And his weight problem and acne, for that matter. Instead he complained at Anonymous, so they instead hacked him, putting his details up for all to see, putting gay porn on his MySpace etc.

He then decided to make a big issue about it, and tried reporting them to the FBI, who didn't particularly care. He also tried hacking the chans, getting them shut down, causing general trouble. It more or less failed (though one of the chans did remove their /i/nvasions board. 4chan didn't have one, so I guess it's one of the others), and they just gave him a harder time. Finally, he went to Fox News.


Well, the Fox News forums went down for a while, as Anonymous flooded the place with inane posts. I'm not sure if that "Taught them not to mess with Anonymous", or if it "proved them right", really. Also, a huge retaliatory strike is being planned against the guy who started it all, in the form of getting free fed-ex boxes mailed to him (in the region of several thousand, with a goal of a million). Childish, attention-grabbing, but not harmful at least. Much as I think he's a moron, I wouldn't wish harm on him and don't want to see the chans brought down as a result of people getting hurt.

They've done the fed-ex trick before. There was a racist podcaster who they had a real laugh with, and possibly others too.

This are a fact. I know because of my learnings.

I have no clue what you are talking about, but it sounds interesting and all.
And holy hell, Mono alive and kicking? Who would've thought...
