    Do we yawn and remind y'all y'all's that it's just another DDOS attack done by Script Kiddies now or do we give you a moment to contain your joy before we break the bubble and you fall face-down onto the ground?

    For all that don't know, Anonymous is not a real organization. It's just random hackers from 4chan that retaliate against random things on the internet that claim that they are Anonymous, giving the allusion that they are an organization.

    >The notorious hacking group going by the moniker Anonymous.

    In all seriousiness it's one website though. Does Anon really need to freak out? It's not like file hosting websites are dropping like filies.

    Someone go on 4chan and browse through all the nsfw images on /b/ to see if anonymous is REALLY doing this or if it's just a group of random people who think they can use Anonymous' name for their own deeds or claim they are from Anonymous (which, you can't claim you're Anonymous if everyone knows who you are).

    Well, other file-hosting websites can be taken down for the same flimsy reasons that Megaupload was taken down for. Right now, if the government wanted.

    its 1 website, but it could cause 7 people to live in prison for 55 years. Imagine if you and 6 co-workers were to live in jail for 55 years. It would ruin your life.

    I support anon's actions.

    Yet another misinformed article pegging "Anonymous" as an actual group.

    DDoSing a site might as well be nothing.

    "It's one website" One website that's been in very high use for the last...at least 5 years.

    This could happen easily. The shutdown of Megaupload set a very dangerous precedent.

    Considering it was the most "Well-respected", a huge dent has been made.

    They're showing the government that they have made a bad decision a bit like a peaceful protest
