    So, what's the IP address of Wackbag? It'll be fun to keep posting on the 'bag when nobody else can get to it.

    If any of this happens the government will put restrictions on the internet and take control of it so we can be safe.

    Settle down. That's not impossible, but it is improbable (especially in an election year).

    Kirk may have a point. The government can shut down the internet, blame anonymous and then "protect us" with a revised SOPA. Of course the outcry to shut down anonymous forever because of the billions lost in commerce will be grounds for black helicopter operations.

    Tinfoil hats, gentleman.

    Edit - Seriously, I would put nothing past this government trying to get SOPA and other restrictions back on the table. Shutting down the net for a day would costs hundreds of billions in lost commerce and disrupt every business on the planet.

    Sounds to me like they will be force quitting java nurbs while simultaneously fracking some https on the capture scratches.

    It's pretty basic computing, 101 at the highest.

    I could handle a week or two without the Internet for the big payoff of seeing these wannabe badasses in Serious trouble. The whole story about the Lulzsec leader pissing his pants and ratting out the entire operation was beautiful but worldwide Internet shutdown? That's actual full blown terrorism and is likely to be treated as such. I doubt they would or could go through with such a thing but it would be worth it to have them find out that the only thing keeping them from life in prison hasn't been their l33t skillz but the fact that the government thus far hasn't considered them worthy of the effort.
