internet hacktivists that originated from the image board 4chan, now completely changed and reformed with new goals like bringing down the Church of Scientology, stopping government laws like ACTA, SOPA and PIPA from being passed and recently, their DarkNet project, which entails bringing down pedophiles and pedophillic content from the internet.
Anonymous are often percieved as being petty hackers that have nothing better to do than hack random websites, but they actually do have good intentions, like free speech and creativity for everyone on the internet. My advice is just get used to the fact that groups like anonymous exist and rather than bashing them and saying ignorant things like "ooh anonymous used to be final boss of the internet but their just a bunch of idiots!!!" get educated and understand anonymous' place on the internet and do not bother yourself with them. Pissing off anonymous is like Pissing on an electric fence. sounds like a funny thing to do but when it comes back and burns you, don't go crying to your mom. you have been warned. dont fuck around with anonymous.
