So, who is doing the VO?

UPDATE: De-Anonymized! Deeyamn!
Scroll down, and behold the faces of Anonymous! Well, some of them. According to CoS.

UPDATE UPDATE: account suspended! did Anonymous resort to a fraudulent DMCA takedown? Did YouTube scramble to protect privacy? Stay tuned!

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: account suspended but "outing" videos STILL up at individual URLs!
Normally when someone gets suspended the videos go too, no?

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: "Someone" posts fraudulent threat video from supposed "members" of Anonymous. Someone tried to use BG image to track video watchers. Someone violated privacy. Someone forgot to read their terms of service. Somebody got pwned.

You see, unlike somebody, anonymous users contacted the feds about those fake threat videos. Unlike the 'threatened.' Who, you know, one would think would at least dial up DHS about anthrax letters and bomb threats.

Funny. Well, at least those horrible anonymous terrorists dropped a dime on themselves for the threat videos. Very noble.

For Superhacker Terrorists on Steroids. And we all know what hacking on steroids leads to.

Who knows if it's real.
Let's face it, all religions are sort of science fiction.

I followed this a bit on the periphery. It is true that web mobs are quick to threaten, but it is hard to imagine a lot of physical vandalism by the hardcore geeks people would almost certainly have to be to even know about Anonymous.
It is also true that the Church of Scientology is not above straight-up propaganda.

And yes, it is also true that I will always side with the person using the computerized word talker...

And it sounds a little like the dude from Frontline...

It's true - Don's been easily swayed ever since the Apple IIe!

I used to use it to get him to pay for drinks, back in the day!

Lugging it around bar to bar was a pain, though.

And I thought it sounded a bit like the Frontline guy, too!
