I hate when people just accept suicide and never look for foul play unless instructed to do so. Especially of circumstances of "computer crimes" just about everyone that has gone sideways to meet there end has that weird eery sense that they knew a little too much especially when in every article anyone that knows the victim mentions they were terrified of the consequences of their actions tbh I haven't been there myself but if a skinny white gangbanger that has a nazi symbol tattooed on his face can survive in a US Jail. Was what worried me about that poor McKinna fellow in the UK. They design and allow this access to happen but slam the gate on people that use it. If they are really interested in actually punishing these people why not create a Jail system made for Technology criminals (but that might actually rehabilitate people).

May he find whatever he was searching for if it is a clean slate.

I have always noticed that if you question things like this you are often demonised for being disrespectful and such. Especially noticed people's reactions to others talking about 9/11. You are demonised for thinking other than what is accepted as the norm. If you don't accept what you are being told in the mass media you are a horrible person.

Well said Orcseeker. +1 Especially in a Forum such as this. Questioning the norm would be an expected of any topic as the name of this site is Unexplained Mysteries. By proposing an alternate "theory" doesnt make it fact or the poster "crazy" for suggesting an alternate possibility. In my book if you dont throw out there might be another possiblility to whats going on your running on with blinders and you might as well watch CNN for your news and never question anything. Our current Govmnt would prefer us to do just that.

Someone talked about they wished Anonymous "would just spill the beans already" (including myself). An example of that occuring is the current talk about drone strikes approved for Americans. That came from the Wikileaks scandal. So perhaps the information is just going to be released over time as it is one of the things that anon holds the Govmnt hostage with and if they dropped it all on us. One we would be in utter shock certainly and also the thing we do hold over the Govmnt (information they dont want the World to know) would no longer have any weight.

Very true, the word conspiracy contains a lot of stigma and generally results in mockery and tin foil hat likeness. Wouldn't it be considered more respectful to pursue to truths of what happened to those who were affected? When those consider that the government or some higher ups could have done something to get a foothold in their pursuits get shunned while others have blind faith and never question anything is the "right" thing to do. That's when you know something is very wrong.

It was interesting. On the time of the 9/11 anniversary. A Facebook associate posted up something like "I feel sorry for all the conspiracy theorists on this day". I found it rather interesting, not only was she pretending to be emotionally affected by this event (lives in Australia and in no way related to anyone involved) but then later through the discussion in which I completely rattled her brain, she then brought up "I can't believe we are discussing this on this day".

I remember seeing a fox news exclusive, the name of the guy who went on eludes me but Bill O'Reilley was using the same techniques and told the guy he had no respect for his dead father. Now that's bad. It's a rather famous video and I'm sure you've watched it but I find it interesting the people who pretend to be emotionally affected or disgusted but it almost seems to be some reaction in fear.

Reported as his last major posting:

The Steps to Achieve our Goals

A Necessary Change

Attention Brothers and Sisters of Anonymous:

As a participant of Anonymous, I see our movement gaining speed. Let me explain an analogy. Our movement is like unto a train that does not stop. We are gaining speed rapidly. It appears to us that we are moving along with great progress. The Occupy movement is doing well. We are progressing rapidly.

Let me explain how this is not the case. Many of you may not agree with me. I am calling for an absolute change to our objectives and priorities. Please ponder this with an open mind.

Our great train is barreling towards a wall that will destroy us, if not thought out correctly. I fear for our movement. I understand we have no leader, and that is ABSOLUTELY FINE! It occurs to me that we are getting ahead of ourselves. We have begun to create grand ideas and goals to achieve our ultimate goal: Freedom! Some of you may have already created these grand goals. That is okay as well, but our movement CAN'T handle all of these goals.

We have become like a child in a candy store. We are running around and picking candy, while, suddenly, switching to another candy. This is DESTROYING the movement! We must stop this at once. It seems that everyone is picking and choosing a step to help complete.

This is where we must stop altogether. Get our priorities in order or else we WILL FAIL!

Let me ask you a few questions. Who can create a press release? Who can make a video? Who can create targets? Who can cause an action to take place?

The answer to all the above is simple. Anyone. Yes, anyone can make all of those things. We are ANONYMOUS. The truth is, we DON'T KNOW who makes these? It could be any of us. It could be an outsider. Who is an outsider? Also, the answer is anyone. Your neighbor, friend, teacher, leaders, your family, even the government itself.

These "Outsiders" are set on destroying the movement. How can they influence us to make the wrong decision? Like I said above, through videos, press releases, targets, anything that makes us take an action could possibly come from an Outsider. This is a sad truth that we all wish we could deny. Some of you might.

I am telling you we NEED TO FOLLOW A SET PATH OF STEPS! Here is a simple objective list I have made to show you what I mean:

1. Spread the word of Anonymous

a.) PLAN

2. Take Action

a.) PLAN

3. Play the Defense

a.) PLAN

4. Survive

5. Reap the Rewards

Our movement has gained MUCH momentum. We have spread the word. We are ready. The one problem is that we are not PLANNING! Brothers and Sisters, we still have not gotten to Step 2 yet. We need to begin Step 1a. That is to Plan!

Plan our targets carefully. Stalk them, learn them, BE the target. Learn about them. A simple "Dox" is not enough. Plan the action we will take. Some of you may believe in the "NWO" or the "Illuminati". These organizations may work in mysterious ways. To control our thoughts and provoke an action in their favor.

How can they do this? They have DECIDED what we will do! They have planned accordingly. They have DECIDED we will fail! Eldridge Cleaver said,

"They use FORCE to MAKE you do, what the DECIDERS have DECIDED you MUST do!"

They call themselves the DECIDERS! I say they have not decided, but merely hypothesized the outcome. Sadly, it is ruling in their favor.

How can we stop their "DECISIONS"? This is also another common phrase used by modern people. "Fight fire with fire" WE MUST DECIDE! HOW DO WE WANT OUR MOVEMENT TO RESULT? In their favor, or our favor? The people say in OUR favor! Follow the steps. DO NOT GET AHEAD OF OURSELVES WITH LARGE GOALS!

Once we leave our planning stage, there is NO GOING BACK! The DECIDERS will become nervous that we have caught onto their plan. We are taking control and no one will stop us. They will attempt by waging wars. Even silent wars you won't hear about. I am telling you right now, THE GOVERNMENT WANTS US TO KEEP ON THE TRACK WE ARE GOING! Why are we not being hunted down like the Nazis did to Jews in the Holocaust? We are not considered a threat by the governments, because we are on the track they want us to take! GET OFF!

Brake the chains of oppression! Like the great philosopher Karl Marx told the world, spread the word among the rooftops! Fight your OPPRESSORS with words and courage! Tell everyone about the evils the governments create!

SPREAD THIS WORK TO ALL YOU SEE! PRINT THIS OUT AND HANDOUT TO THE MASSES! TEACH THE WORLD OF TRUE FREEDOM!

WE ARE NOT YOUR PUPPETS! WE ARE NOT YOUR SLAVES! WE ARE NOT YOUR CHILDREN! WE ARE NOT YOUR WORKERS!

WE ARE ANONYMOUS!

We hide our identities because we are NOT scared! THIS IS OUR WAR CRY!

WE ARE LEGION!

Our masks unify us in solidarity! ANONYMOUS be our name to signify us as ONE! You CANNOT address thousands of identities as multiples, but as ONE! We are one in purpose! THIS IS OUR STRENGTH!

WE DO NOT FORGIVE!

The atrocities that have been committed by governments is numberless. We learn these evils and combat them! THIS IS OUR CAUSE!

WE DO NOT FORGET!

We do not forget the atrocities committed by the governments! We do not forget the years of OPPRESSION and PAIN! THIS IS OUR KNOWLEDGE!

EXPECT US!

Our OPPRESSORS never thought we could find them and undermine their plans of CONTROL and DESTRUCTION! We will OBLITERATE them and their supporters! They should have known we were coming! You CANNOT stop the power of the people! THIS IS OUR MESSAGE!

Remain Anonymous, Brothers and Sisters! For we can WIN this battle! We can operate as ONE! We can get the people in power!

It's like Tony Robbins for nerds. You can do it!

I think he went crazy towards the end of his life, and is actually talking to memes on Reddit. He is giving encouragement to help them launch their careers. Or he might have been trying to coordinate an attack of memes, a cyber-attack that would shut down major websites by flooding their servers with stupid pics.
