    Things like this make me sad that I'm not part of the Anonymous collective anymore :(

    You WERE associated with Anonymous at one time?

    Yes. Back then, just like now, there wasn't really any sort of "You're in or your out" routine. People sorta came and went as they pleased.

    Granted, there were secret chat rooms, websites, and such, but I have no idea how to access them anymore.

    Fair enough. At least they're not terrorists. There were plans to actually Pipe-bomb the Scilons at one point. It took a youtube video and about 50 sensible people to talk everyone down.

    But that's neither here or there.

    It's still like that, from what I understand.

    But I don't part take in their activities. Maybe the occasional troll.

    Anon changes about once every couple of years.
    Gen.1 Anonymous was about raiding forums and annoying kids on Habbo Hotel
    Gen.2 Anon was about targeting child molesters and Neo-Nazis
    Gen.3 was Scientology
    I would guess we're in Gen. 5 or 6 now. Few if anyone I knew from back then is still a part of it.

    Anonymous is mostly composed of teenagers and college-age adults who have a lot of time on their hands. Once we grow up, we'd get out, because it takes a lot of devotion to do what we did.

    Just out of curiosity, who are you or anonymous to decide what speech should be allowed and what speech should not?

    And please don't try and make it out like I am on this groups side. I detest them with every ounce of My being.

    But then, I am not Mao Tse-Tung either
