WTF anonymous?

from here

are you like me, folks? did anonymous' retaliation for the megaupload takedown make you scratch your head and wonder what the heck they were thinking? it's not like the takedown harms filesharing at all, since file locker sites are a dime a dozen (heck, even google docs is a file locker of sorts). the takedown really seems to do more to harm the interests of SOPA/PIPA supporters than anything else, since taking down a foreign website and making arrests overseas highlights just how much of an unnecessary power-grab those proposed bills really were.

as some were suggesting on twitter, it seems like they're trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of success.

Megaupload was about to scr1w the music industry with megabox. that is why it was taken down and why it matters.
