The word Anonymous basically means a wish to remain unknown,

So the fact that nothing is known about them is kinda the point ;)

It's difficult to nail down exactly what they believe because they have no central leadership and no identification, so basically anybody can be Anonymous. That being said, most things done in the name of Anonymous, as far as I am aware, seem to be a fight against censorship and oppression and giving power to the little guy.

Anonymous is a collective of internet hackers, using their numbers and skills to crush their enemies. Sometimes they strike for justice, sometimes they strike for their own amusement, but either way, their attacks are swift and cruel.

Well, that's what they'd tell you, anyway.

In reality, it's mostly a bunch of 12 year olds and neckbeard who browse /b/ and think they're hackers because they can manage a DDOS every now and then.

Anonymous is just the concept of being able to be anonymous. Really, that's all. Anonymous activism, often promoted through hacking (or "hacking"), is just doing stuff anonymously. The only thing in common between all anonymous activist groups is that they all follow the philosophy of not having hierarchy or identification. Other than that, they might have completely contrasting ideals or goals.

As a fa/tg/uy, this is just /b/. A lot of the other boards legitimately get shit done and actually have some semblance of culture.

Anyway, Anonymous is just a bunch of people who chose to call themselves anonymous. On 4chan, it's anyone who doesn't use a name or tripcode, elsewhere, it's what people call themselves while trying too hard to be internet vigilantes. Reason that started was because /b/ used to do stupid shit to habbo and second life called raids and eventually that got attached to anonymous through fox news. It used to be fun, now it's just dumb. Club penguin raids are usually moderately entertaining though.

So it really isn't anything to be worried about but what about Paypal? I heard off an article that the group brought down that website during 2010 so there has to be some decent hackers in this group?

There's a reason it's called anonymous.
