Their members are getting arrested faster than the websites go down (and pop back up), so no, there's not a chance in hell Facebook will go down for good.

Well I just recently deleted my account, though it's currently disabled.
As I have to wait like 14 days for them to delete it :rolleyes:


As for the topic at hand, no I don't think they'll succeed ;)
Are they trying to be the new "Guy Fawkes"? Why else would they choose that date?

Your account won't be deleted - I disabled my account and was off Facebook for longer than 14 days. All I had to do to reactivate was sign in :rolleyes:.

I doubt these people will be able to pull this off.

kooky
09-08-11, 20:42
I really have to say this, I do not know how they'll be able to pull this attempt off. What sounds hard to believe is how facebook sends millions of users (people's) personal information to governmental agencies, highly unlikely imho. Honestly why would the government have any curiosity on us & get into all our personal lives? It is not like everyone on the internet is committing a crime. But it doesn't concern me at all as the attempt will be highly unlikely.

I don't know what to say.

I suppose I could start my sentence with an abbreviation and end it with no less than 5 letters. However, that would be useless.

Why do they want to take out Facebook?

This is such a clear painting of good and evil. Good is still human, don't get me wrong. You can be jealous all you like, but instead of hacking the other website- you make a better site.

Why not put all this effort and knowledge to good use, you'll feel great about it and pwn your competitors (which seems to be everyone).

Does it actually delete all your comments from other people's profiles, as well as all the content on your own profile?

Just deactivating your account does so. I had two accounts, I deactivated my main one and every comments, every pictures, every information vanished and I just had to log on again to make them reappear. It's as simple as that.

That weird obsession with November 5th is exactly what happens when people get their historical facts from Hollywood movies ('V for Vendetta'). As much as I dislike Facebook, I don't think keyboard heroes will accomplish anything. They can try, I guess.


What's Anonymous?
Some sort of organisation?

Chaotic people with a computer and internet access. Could be anyone that wants to participate in their goings (they are usually users from a forum called 4chan), that's why they call themselves Anonymous. Something they do 'good things' (like tracing people in animal cruelty videos and reporting them to the police), sometimes they do 'bad things' (like taking websites down because they don't agree with them).

Yeah, I'm all for Anonymous to do the deed but why 5th November? Remember, remember the 5th of November?

Or upload pictures of their slutty selves.

Even if Anon won't manage to take it down, FB will sooner or later either fall into obscurity or just become deserted. MySpace used to be the most popular thing out there a few years back but these days? Only bands seem to use it anymore. And I'm sure once a newer and better social network type of website pops up, FB will slowly be abandoned.

Oh jeez. The way I see it is like this. If people want to "share information" with facebook, that's entirely up to them. And even after being a user and hearing about facebook allegedly stealing information, it's their job whether or not to cancel their account and cease trusting facebook. Can't anonymous members get a real job like, idk working at mcdonalds instead of vegetating in their mothers basement finding amusement in destroying peoples online lives to compensate for their lack of actual lives? I'll admit, yeah they got some skill, but they need to be working somewhere where they can really put good use to it, not threatening online networking sites because they're paranoid.

Lara Coft Baby
10-08-11, 21:34
From what i heard on the news their doing this because Facebook is sharing our info with the government. So that they can spy on us? First of all let me say this, I highly doubt that the government needs the information posted on our facebooks to spy on us. If they really wanted to do this, they have a load of other technology they can use to do so. And if facebook was in fact doing this, why? What do they get out of it?

I highly doubt they will pull this off for many reasons. One, they will get caught before it happens. Because I am sure that the cops will try to investigate any hacking or hacking treats. (then again cops these days don't to jack squat) Two, facebook will probably be on alert now and are doing every thing they can to prevent this from happening. Or already have ways of stopping it, or fixing a hacking attempt. Thirdly and more possible, they are doing it just to scare the poop out of people. And get them paranoid.

Either way, i don't see this actually happening. I believe it as much as i believe the world is ending in 2012.
