Bingo. There's a right way and a wrong way to protest things. Virtual vandalism


Vandalism means damaging property that isn't yours. Anonymous isn't damaging anything. In fact, Sony has damaged other people's property by removing OtherOS support - so Sony are the vandals here.

and inconveniencing hundreds of thousands of people who have nothing to do with Sony's policies definitely falls into the latter.


You do realise that the whole idea of a protest or strike is to be inconvenient, right?

Nothing will make me happier than seeing a three letter agency kicking in these puerile pricks' doors when they piss off the wrong target.


You'd make one damn fine Stasi agent.
