A series of website hacks over the past 24 hours has been attributed to the online hacktivist group Anonymous.

The websites of US broadcaster NBC, pop singer Lady Gaga and the Australian government have all been attacked.

Some of the hacked websites displayed a rhyme about 5 November, when Guy Fawkes's attempt to destroy Parliament in 1605 is marked in the UK.

I wonder why Lady Gaga was targeted.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

That's great, but when you have no freedom whatsoever on the internet (giving opinions or uploading things to youtube etc) just remember that these people where fighting for YOUR freedom while you where bad mouthing them. :tu:

Just popular, so their point would hit a wider audience.

makes sense for it to happen on guy fawkes night, the biggest anarchist night of the year, and is no suprise that alan moore based his character 'V', the anarchist, on guy fawkes' image.....

Guy Fawkes was the last man to enter the houses of parliament with good intentions.

Ha Ha! :tu:

Guy Fawkes tried to blow up my 13th Great Grandfather, King James Stuart VI! That's not cool! :rofl:

That's just TYPICAL of the English to try and blow up a Scottish King....

There is speculation that it was a False Flag operation, with the suspects being framed in order to justify a pogrom against Roman Catholic diehards. Some think thatit looks rather suspicious how the Authorities were tipped off at just the right moment to catch them red handed .

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

in Yorkshire, we don't call it guy fawkes night, we call it 'plot neet'
(apologies for the dialect, but that's how it's pronounced!)
we're rather proud of the plotters round here, as most of 'em came from yorkshire, and there's only yorkshiremen who're brave enough, AND stoopid enough to blow up a king & all his lackeys!
if the queen got offed tomorrow, the police would turn over every divot of turf in yorkshire looking for the culprit!

when i'm txting friends, we do it in dialect, as if we were speaking to each other, but if I tried doing that on here, they'd probably bar me, thinking i'm a glue-sniffer or something!!
