They are still alive even if the anon-hype is over and lawsuit in progress. I was quite sure the movement would lose much of its strength after a few week. But apparently they still have the fire power to take down target used to multi million simultaneous visitors.

I dont think it come from peoples having forgotten that ion cannon thing open for months, they must have one (or both) of these things: an ever increasing in power botnet or real supporters.

Are they the "good peoples", definitely not. But at the same time, like it or not, they do defend peoples interest against abusive corporate power and corporate driven government action, slowing the *slow* "advance" coming from the lobbying front. So, in the end, are those kids "outlaw hero" like modern robin hood, just dumb kids playing batman or simple criminals with no better idea and/or an appetite for visibility?
