|Someone is wrong on|
Anonymous (2003-present) is the moniker used by a loose collective of hackers and ne'er-do-wells associated with the imageboard 4chan, Encyclopedia Dramatica, and various other forums. While generally anarchic, Anonymous has collaborated in several high-profile acts of digital protest; this came to head in the national media during the international controversy surrounding WikiLeaks' release of U.S. State Department secret cables, though since 2008, Anonymous had been engaged in a guerrilla campaign against organizations like the Church of Scientology. "Anonymous" is not a defined group of people, but rather a name used by any "hacktivist" if they believe their goals align with the loosely defined interests of Anonymous.
Within internet culture, the "image" of Anonymous is often associated with misogyny and anti-feminism in addition to hacktivism. The Guy Fawkes mask, commonly worn by those identifying with Anonymous in real life, has become a something of a symbol of men's rights activism.
Many member of the Anonymous believes conspiracy theories, like the Illuminati ones, they like to show it to us in their videos.
The most common use of 'hacking' by Anonymous is in fact a DDoS attack, an attack of this nature is the real world equvilant of having several angry midgets stand in front of a door preventing anyone from entering, this is not actual hacking as much as it is having hundreds of people click to refresh a website which, in turn, overloads the website's servers; more times than not this attack does nothing.
Their major method of operation is to do something that seems really horrifying to the public, but in reality is pretty much a waste of everyone's time
