    I'm sure they totally did that and just aren't trying to fake-boost their own egos to compensate for their small penises.

    Honestly, it sounds plausible, and yet unbelievable at the same time. Hence them claiming to have done it. They should have just released the evidence, tbh.

    Any sentence containing the word "Anonymous" with a capital "A" in reference to a group of people and as a noun does not sound plausible

    I like to start my sentences with capital letters. Sorry you didn't know people did that.

    They only stole the two things that Sony's customers would want to have be the two most protected things in their possession, but you know, no big deal. Anyone can get thousands of people's credit card numbers and passwords nowadays. :P

    I was refering to the proper name - "Anonymous" as a noun refering to this particular group of people is going to be written with a capital letter anywhere in the sentence... so sarcasm fail. :P

    There actually is no definite proof of Anonymous's involvement in the PS3 hackings, or at least I've seen none, and seeing that most people who claim to be a part of Anonymous are actually script kiddies, I wouldn't be so quick to put the blame on them.

    Also an organization has to start somewhere. I made sure to word my sentences not to say that they definitely did, but that they claim to, and it may be possible.

    Anonymous is a bunch of poser ass punks. Really don't like anyone who pretends their life is a movie.

    Hurray guys, Microsoft Sam saved the day.

    Why can't he just distort his voice? Is he 10? And why does the opening look like it's a sensationalising news channel?

    And the thing that always gets me: Why do these people sit around and try and go under the guise of "anonymous" like they have the authority to sit and speak as though they're a leader of an organisation, rather than the conventional meaning of "any old person who posted on an anonymous image board"?

    They saved the election? But Obama was the winner....

    Not that fond of Anonymous. A lot of them feel they are superior human beings for some reason, and that they can decide what is wrong and right. (Usually by committing several crimes.)

    Not to mention overall very cowardly.
