LULZ = For Shits and Giggles

Anonymous has no organizational structure and no leader. It's tha kind of thing that makes the oligarchs heads explode. Sort of like the Norwegian Knights Templar movement.

I disagree; I think they are mostly, if not all, "insiders". The internet has largely been to the benefit of the little guy, as the "elite" controlled the media.

Doesn't it make sense that the "elite" can benefit from the internet as well?

What better way to (1) take out a company that won't toe your line, (2) destroy a person's credibility, or (3) herd the lemmings over a cliff once some street cred is provided. On top of all that, I don't doubt the information is accurate; I am saying the vehicle that is anoymous has intentions which are not clear at this time.

Eventually there will be the internet crack down once the dirty work is done, the money made, countries broken, and the pleebs plunged into information darkness.

Not trying to pick you're comment apart, I agree that this report could be released by an insider with the intention of torpedoing competition. However, to assert that the "vehicle that is anonymous has intentions that are unclear" simply makes no sense. By it's nature, a vehicle can't have an intention. The intention is solely attributed to the individual presently acting upon a vehicle. In the case of an anonymous collective, we can only speculate on intentions. And for the most part, the acts of the Anonymous collective usually is just for the lulz or social justice. Personal gain is eliminated outright.

When I was a kid, we used to put shit in a paper bag and put it on peoples front porches, set it on fire, bang the door (usually someone known by someone involved).

To my surprise, no one ever fell for it; they side-scootted it off the wood to the ground and went back in side.

Why does this matter? Your post is a flaming bag of shit. I will just let it burn. Those old fuckers, they had it all figured out. Not sure why kids (like me) couldn't ever figure that out...

Please drive through.

if zerohedge continues to publish anon reports, they will be visited by the FBI.  It's fairly clear there's a new hedge fund strategy (hedge fund using leverage + "biased investigators that use distort and short PR"):

category: Anon short arbitrage in the options market.

Interesting indeed.

Anonymous is such a huge collective, it probably has people in every major player.  If interns who spend their spare time on the chans start rummaging for sensitive documents at work, you could see some major news breaking out of this group on a regular basis.

Unfortunately, entities like Anonymous can be easily infiltrated by the CIA.  Fortunately, their decentralized nature means they can never be fully compromised.  You should never fully trust or fully distrust an entity like Anonymous.  One release may be the truth, the next release may be complete dis-info.  Any release is what it is.  You must make up your own mind.  One thing is for sure, you're not going to receive this kind of material on the Thought Vacuum.

Screw these anonymous short sellers who hide behind "research" to justify their attempts to profit by negative attacks.  I laugh when they try to describe their work as altruistic.  They are the next generation pump and dump scamsters, or should I say short and extort scamsters.   They don't care if you get hurt, they are running a money making scheme.
