WereCatf,

"The point wasn't to disrupt anything in and of itself, it was merely a side-effect of it."

That is an interesting point.

In the minds of Anonymous members, was the DDOS against Sony users the ends in and of itself? Or was it the means to push for an ulterior outcome?

From all the comments and discussion I've seen it's only been about "vengeance." Of course, I cannot claim that it applies to all of them, there's always individuals in every group, but given the large amount of comments and "discussion" I've witnessed and the sheer malice in them I cannot but get the feeling it's the same for majority of Anon members.
