    Wonder whats up. Anonymous are dick heads, cause this can cause people to lose their jobs. And losing jobs is awful. I don't believe a word they say -- "outrageous treatment of employees and actions against many developers."

    I hope they just release the info anyway. It would be far better for the world if they did.

    You haven't READ a word they say, you mean?
    If that info's true, then it seems that Zynga's planning, on it's own, to do a huge layoff, and 4chan doesn't want it.

    That seems a little odd though, unless controlling members of the group work there...

    The point of Anonymous is there are no controlling members, no ranks, everyone is truly anonymous. That being said, Anonymous of last week might be completely different than Anonymous of a month ago. There is no "Group" either really. Anonymous is just Anonymous. People are once again treating them as a concrete entity, when they are the complete and total opposite.

    Anonymous has nothing to do with 4chan, and furthermore it's not like having 'confidential info' (very likely just passwords) will stop anyone from doing anything, Anonymous is the most pathetic group of script kiddies I've ever seen.

    On one hand, it's Anonymous, but on the other hand, it's Zynga. Guess it'll be interesting if something comes out of this.

    There's people on IRC and such that organize and give direction. This has been shown multiple times in the past. We're not dealing with a stand-alone complex like GITS, we're dealing with modern humans.

    Correct, and I'm talking about the people of this specific incident/movement.

    These kinds of threats were not spontaneously made into existence by an act of god. This kind of info was not found out by nobody. The posts were not created by a butterfly's wings.

    There's one or more actual humans doing this, and they're doing it for a reason. When "Anonymous" calls in a movement, it's because one or more humans called it. The fact that they go to lengths to hide their identities (on systems that don't do it automatically, such as IRC and forums/e-mail) and the fact that the result is a group effort doesn't hide the fact that there's certain people who make these movements in the first place (and take the leading actions).

    And I'm theorizing on why this type of movement was made.
