No they aren't. They steal your debit card details and sell them, draining your bank account and causing your direct debits to bounce, leading to credit problems, eviction and worse. The banks don't hurry to repair the damage, why should they, they've all the money! My neighbor lost his home "thanks" to Anonymous. It's not funny what they do.

gall way bay your a dumb ass.
lets try soe headlines...
-Operation DarkNe
They took down 40 child porn sites, published the names of over 1500 people frequenting those websites,
-Operation Orlando
The group did so in response to the arrests of members of Food Not Bombs for feeding the homeless in Lake Eola Park against city ordinances
-Operation BART
in response to Bay Area Rapid Transit's shutdown of cell phone service in an attempt to disconnect protesters from assembling non-violently in response to a police shooting
-Attack on Stratfor
claims were made that Anonymous stole thousands of e-mail addresses and credit card information from security firm Stratfor. "Reportedly"
-HBGary Federal
D1cks but besides that...
Aaron Barr, the chief executive of the security firm HBGary Federal, announced that his firm had successfully infiltrated the Anonymous group, and although he would not hand over details to the police, he would reveal his findings at a later conference in San Francisco. In retaliation for Aaron Barr's claims, members of the group Anonymous hacked the website of HBGary Federal and replaced the welcome page with a message stating that Anonymous should not be messed with, and that the hacking of the website was necessary to defend itself. Using a variety of techniques, including social engineering and SQL injection, Anonymous also went on to take control of the company's e-mail, dumping 68,000 e-mails from the system, erasing files, and taking down their phone system. The leaked emails revealed the reports and company presentations of other companies in computer security such as Endgame systems who promise high quality offensive software, advertising "subscriptions of $2,500,000 per
year for access to 0day exploits".

Is it wrong to gloat when bad things happen to bad people? I would rather have my tax money be spent chasing down these maggots than being used for alot of the government programs that use up our tax dollars. Dollars spent busting Anonymous is money well spent.
