    Lol, It is the documentary of the story about the Hacktivist group Anonymous.
    I thought that the title was describing it very well :p

    *** We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists is a 2012 documentary-film about the workings and beliefs of "hacktivist" collective, Anonymous.

    The film was written and directed by Brian Knappenberger and features the story of Anonymous assumed to stem from the imageboard 4.chan. It also outlines major turning points and "operations" in their history.


    The film describes in varying detail the major events of Anonymous as a group. The following events are documented:
    Habbo raids, Hal Turner raid, Project Chanology, Epilepsy Foundation forum invasion, Sarah Palin email hack, Operation Titstorm, Operation Payback,
    Visa, Mastercard, Paypal DDOS Attacks, Arab Spring, Attack on HBGary Federal, Operation Sony & Operation Anti-Security. ***

    ^^ ah. I thought so, but I'm not up on it, and didn't know hacktivists meant anonymous.

    anyway, it sounds good so I'll watch it tonight :)

    Anonymous/Hacktivists are mostly people with mental disorders and extreme paranoia. The women in the beginning of the video was acting like there is nothing wrong with DDOS attacks and that its not illegal. Until they learn the best way to protest something you don't like is to create PACS,hire lobbyists and make political connections they will never achieve the change they want.

    If they are for free speech why do they not want people with certain viewpoints to have free speech such as "neo-nazis"?

    Those with motto should know the origins of them.
    "We are legion" (I am legion" as it is here) comes from the story of Jesus casting demons out from a possessed man - Mark 5:9 specifically: "And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many."

    The story: hxxp://biblehub.com/kjv/mark/5.htm

    Have a blessed day. ;)

    Apart from the trolling bit, that whole video has re-inspired me and it typifies everything that I love about the Internet and computers.

    i love commanderX' public announcement post edictment as well, "yes, I am commanderX". Like his lawyers were probably begging him to exercise his right to remain silent.

    +rep for a great share, and I now understand something about anonymous+ have a lot of respect for them as a result.

    When I saw that moment there, Iron Man crossed my mind, when Tony Stark is in front of the press and says: The truth is... I am Iron Man

    Watched it yesterday. Interesting doc. Similar docs I've watched recently was AFK the Pirate Bay documentary. Also watched We Steal Secrets the doc about wikileaks and mostly Assange. It is biased but not the hatchet job that wikileaks were predicting.

    I watched that link on an iPad.

    Stop watching movies on your phone. You will be blind in 5 years flat !
