Am I the only one who views anonymous from a literal standpoint?
As far as I am concerned, anonymous is anonymous, the everybody and nobody of the internet. A force of random selected individuals from different origins with different motives all collected under one common goal.
To me, they are not a secret spy/terrorist/vigilante/COBRA organization. They are not even an organization. ‘Anonymous’ is merely a mask that can be worn by any faction with any agenda. But Anonymous is not representative of any faction or agenda itself.
Therefore, they are not an object that I can apply diplomatic feelings toward.
If I were to “Support/Oppose” anonymous, to me this would like going out into the street to meet complete strangers and saying “I support/oppose you, even though I had no idea who you are and what you are doing…”
All I can do is either agree or disagree with specific individual actions that that Anonymous undertakes. Either way, they don’t alter my neutral impression of anonymous because I know that the people who did Operation Darknet could be an entirely different organization that the people who did Project Chanology and so on so forth
