Operation Payback (is a bitch), this is the Internet, we run this. An open message from Anonymous to the governments of the world and their legal leeches regarding the motivation of the cyber protests.
Corrupt governments of the world, we are anonymous. For some time now, voices have been crying out in unison against the new ACTA laws. The gross inadequacies of the new laws being passed internationally have been pointed out repeatedly. Our chief complaint is that such measures would restrict people’s access to the internet.
In these modern times access to the internet is fast becoming a basic human right. Just like any other basic human right, we believe that it is wrong to infringe upon it. To threaten to cut people off from the global consciousness as you have is criminal and abhorrent. To move to censor content on the internet based on your own prejudice is at best laughably impossible, at worst, morally reprehensible.
The unjust restrictions you impose on us will meet with disaster and only strengthen our resolve to disobey and rebel against your tyranny. Such actions taken against you, and those you out source your malignant litigation too, are inevitable, unavoidable and unstoppable.
We Are Anonymous,
We Are Legion And Divided By Zero.
We Do Not Forgive Internet Censorship
And We Do Not Forget Free Speech.
We Are Over 9000,

Anonymous Picks Wrong Target
God, I hope so! I was just Blocked again tonight while doing nothing but Searching and adding the results to one of my Bookshelves.
I am a very heavy user of Google Books. I use a Google Account ID I have had for years and have used for Blogger and still use for YouTube (my Google ID for gmail is different and just for that).
Being constantly Blocked is driving me up the digital wall.
Is this really the kind of country you want to live in?
Man gets 33 months for threatening Obama in poem
This is the kind of thing we used to assail the Soviet Union about!
You remember them, right?
They’d go into people’s homes without warrants.
They’d disappear people to a distant place.
They feared their own citizens.
Wait. That’s us now.
Is this really what the hell you want?
Yes, I know they spell it “Google ebookstore.” The hell with that. I use “eBook” and “eBookstore” and will bludgeon them with it here.
This post is primarily for people outside of the United States, who cannot fully access Google eBookstore. It might also be of interest for people in the U.S. due to some things I point out that need fixing.

A very interesting video I found today.
