NewgonWiki is moving to a new domain (yet to be decided, but very soon). We will then create a public forum within 10-12 weeks. There is a slight possibility that Newgon.net will expire in early December and therefore not redirect to the new NewgonWiki domain. In that case, JohnHolt will post a notice on BoyChat and BoyLinks will carry the new URL.

Anonymous

Jump to navigationJump to search

Anonymous (2003 onwards, originally from the imageboard 4chan) is a loosely affiliated cyber-terror vigilante/hacker organization. The group became known for a series of well-publicized publicity stunts and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on government, religious, and corporate websites. Their symbols and identifiers are the Guy Fawkes mask and Man Without a Head.

General History

In its early form, the concept was adopted by a decentralized online community acting anonymously in a coordinated manner, usually toward a loosely self-agreed goal, and primarily focused on entertainment, or "lulz". Beginning with 2008's Project Chanology—a series of protests, pranks, and hacks targeting the Church of Scientology —the Anonymous collective became increasingly associated with collaborative, hacktivism on a number of issues internationally. Individuals claiming to align themselves with Anonymous undertook protests and other actions (including direct action) in retaliation against anti-digital piracy campaigns by motion picture and recording industry trade associations. Later targets of Anonymous hacktivism included government agencies of the US, Israel, Tunisia, Uganda, and others; child pornography sites; copyright protection agencies; the Westboro Baptist Church; and corporations such as PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, and Sony. Anons have publicly supported WikiLeaks and the Occupy movement. Related groups LulzSec and Operation AntiSec carried out cyberattacks on US government agencies, media, video game companies, military contractors, military personnel, and police officers, resulting in the attention of law enforcement to the groups activities.

Dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the US, UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Evaluations of the group's actions and effectiveness vary widely. The Anonymous began as a group of politically motivated "freedom fighters" and digital Robin Hoods but has devolved into "a cyber lynch-mob" or "cyber terrorist organization".

Of relevance to Minor Attracted People

In January 2015, a group of Script kiddies (unskilled cyber attackers), led by a 16-year-old lesbian girl from North Carolina who called herself IncursioSubter, DDoS attacked the Free Spirits servers causing minor short term disruptions in service.

Encyclopedia Dramatica was founded in 2004 by Sherrod DeGrippo, initially as a means of documenting gossip related to LiveJournal, but it quickly was adopted as a major platform by Anonymous for parody and other purposes. Currently, ED hosts a collection of outdated and inaccurate articles that originated from anti-pedophile website, Wikisposure. In recent years, the site has taken on more of an uptight, moralfag tone and a more rules-based approach to managing their pedophile related lulz content.

Darknet efforts and #OpPedoChat

Anons launched Operation Darknet in October 2011, targeting websites hosting child pornography. In particular, the group hacked a child pornography site called "Lolita City" hosted by Freedom Hosting, releasing 1,589 usernames from the site. Anons also said that they had disabled forty image-swapping pedophile websites that employed the anonymity network Tor.[1] In 2012, Anons leaked the names of users of a suspected child porn site in OpDarknetV2.[2] Anonymous launched the #OpPedoChat campaign on Twitter in 2012 as a continuation of Operation Darknet. In attempt to eliminate child pornography from the internet, the group posted the emails and IP addresses of suspected pedophiles on the online forum PasteBin.[3]
