Shit no one has ever said:

"Hey! Let’s piss off the internet by threatening to nuke the internet via a censorship bill! It’ll be hilarious, you guys!"

No one in their right mind would say that, right?

Oh… wait.

And then…

We Anonymous are launching our largest attack ever on government and music industry sites. Lulz. The FBI didn’t think they would get away with this did they? They should have expected us.

    The Internet Strikes Back #OpMegaupload

    Anonymous’ hijinks may be amusing, but censorship is real. Stay vigilant and stay informed, folks. You never know what shit they’ll say next.
