[Thinking out loud] How far is $ci willing to go? This is just a discussion topic. This is not to impact protests, proposed protests, plans, operative-groups, etc. I sincerely hope it contains no epic fail. Just how far will they go? So far we've seen apparently fake threats against themselves, DVDs, counter-protests, obvious surveillance, not-so-obvious surveillance, fake leaks to inspire fear, libel, threats of litigation, attempts to uncover IP addresses via BitTorrent, sites designed to attract traffic away from legit anti-$ci sites to pro-$ci sites identification of protesters at protests counter-postering apparent break and enters efforts to infiltrate commenting sites apparent infiltration of sites such as enturb, the chans, etc attempts to link anon to actions online in court attacks on anon/anon's pets This does not include the trolls, the digg effect on all our servers, and the hacking of (711? 411? Chan by a pro-sci group) Where can they go from here? Some have suggested attempting to frame anon for various crimes, attempting to arrest the "leaders" (lulz), charging various members of anon for being part of anon, etc. So, what will do they actually do? Will they continue to attempt to "name" the members of anon and charge them? Will they frame anon? Will they pursue litigation against every anon they identify? Will they try to buy out domain names? Will they ddos? Will they continue sending out their DVDs? Will we be all declared SPs? Will anon start getting fair-gamed at every protest? Or has $ci learned from us and will they change their tactics? Can they change their tactics? Will they start charging anons around the world? Do they have the money to do that? Will they charge anons identified in Brazil, in Alert (The closest Canadian settlement to the North Pole btw), in Britain, in Germany, in France, in Japan, and in the US? Or are they too weak outside of the US? Do they have enough people on their side to handle that many court cases? Will they try to disrupt anon's activities? Will we let them? Will they stoop to the level of our DDOS? Will they keep making the foot-bullet DVD? (In fact, all of their videos so far have been massive foot-bullets.) I have a bad feeling that we might be backing the $cis into a corner. And it'd be nice if we could discuss what could be coming down the pipeline in the future. And if someone predicts the contents of the pre-April 12th press release, one internets for you. TL;DR: ITT: what will sci do now. It seems like they've used all of their old tactics (and failed) and if someone has any inkling of what will be next it'd be nice if they could share.
