  1. I like Anonymous, I think that they are a good group of proactive people, whoever they are.

    1. While I agree with your liking of Anonymous group (in consideration of their present ‘anti-corruption’ stand point) I also believe that letting vigilantes run the show is a dangerous move. I wonder what we’d be saying if the sites Anonymous were targeting were all pro-gay or equality-law groups?

      1. we’d call them “Christians” who live by their bibles, who could also consider themselves vigilantes in their glorious and colourful history!!

        Just wanted to say, I appreciate your comments in here and does provide some with food for thought :)

        It’s going to be a while before the nation states catch up with the internet, if they ever do. This is the singularity in action, just gotta roll with it.

    2. “Anonymous have since published details about Mr Moore, including the names of family members and his home address.”

      Do you not think targeting his family members makes them just as dangerous? What if one of them committed suicide? Vigilantes are dangerous.

      1. True, but sometimes, they’re neccesary.

        1. There have been anti-gay vigilantes in the past. The definition of vigilante is that you don’t get to pick and choose. You just have to hope they are on your side.

      …sometimes. They come from very dark bits of the internet, but have become somewhat detached from all that.

  2. Anonymous are mostly Christians who are cowards who are afraid to show their face because they do the same thing they say others are doing.

    This is what really pisses me off about Anonymous. They take the moral high ground against this guy and then post the names of his family members. What exactly have they done wrong? It’s all very well to prevent stalking of innocent people but why does that suddenly exclude people who happen to be of the same family of Hunter Moore? Wrong wrong wrong. I could tolerate the moral high ground if it wasn’t so fraught with hypocrisy.

      Maybe. But this Moore character clearly doesn’t give shit if exposing innocent ppl on the internet leads to breakdown, suicide, public humiliation etc etc. So he needs to be taught a hard lesson.

    2. I agree. Target him, not the family that isn’t fair.

  4. I LOVE this group…I LOVE what they do….and I LOVE how they do it !!!

    I have read the other comments in here and I respect peoples’ personal remarks.

    With that said, a group like this, that divulges the way they do…well they are bound to encounter some dislikes along the way. That doesn’t provoke me to suggest who they might be or what level of morals they need to guide themselves.

    I know that some question their tactics to achieve the end results. I, too, might have thoughts on that; however, it is an ends to a means….and nothing less than what you might find with investigative reporters or paparazzi….

    I think they know what needs to be done, or figures it out and do it, to get to that end.

    1. ” it is an ends to a means”

      Well I hope no one you know upsets them so they target you and try to destroy your life.

      1. Wow, really weird. I defend innocent people and get 5 thumbs down. There are some strange people using this forum.

  5. Now Moore is talking about teaching the tactics of stalking people.

    This guy has already done a lot of harm, and he is becoming a cyber criminal.

    1. concerned 3 Dec 2012, 9:19pm

      Exactly. Its an abuse of the internet; that is what anonymous are trying to stop because if we don’t (i.e. the public) , the global govt in waiting will regulate it for us. the uk govt already is planning to introduce legislation that will allow them to spy on our emails and online activity.

      1. The previous government announced that and as far as Im aware it was scrapped.

  6. “Mr Moore used to post sexual images of men and women without their permission, along with links to their social networking profiles, leaving victims open to online abuse and ridicule.
    He then sold the website, IsAnyoneUp.com, to an anti-bullying charity in April this year.”
    Do I understand this right, he sets up a cyberbullying site and then profits from an anti bullying charity by selling them the rights?
    What kind of anti-bullying charity would allow that to happen?
    I only hope they bought it for the purpose of shutting it down, but it still sends out a message that “people will pay me good money to stop being a cyberstalking jerk”. Protection racket much?

    You gotta love Anonymous.

  8. When Anonymous do things like this, I support them. I’m inclined to agree that targeting his family is too far, but I can support the retaliation at its basic level.

    Of course, Anonymous is a large collective of people who are, obviously, anonymous. So unfortunately they themselves have their named linked to some truly terrible things. I just hope that eventually the bad can be weeded out.

  9. so many stupid people. we need vigilante justice clearly, considering this man was allowed to operate with impunity and without consequence and profited from it. did the gov’t step in? did the police? they already have the tools they need to do this, but they claim to need more. by ignoring it they are hoping we will say we need more internet restriction and control as well. while it is not necessarily fair that anon are targeting the family, this man clearly doesn’t care how many families and peoples lives he’s destroyed. if his family knew what was going on and said nothing then that would be all the reason to target them to, but we cannot be sure.
