‘Anonymous’ Member Unmasked, Charged With Web Attack on Scientology stated: “An 18 year-old New Jersey man agreed to plead guilty to federal computer hacking charges Friday for participating in a denial-of-service attack against Church of Scientology websites, as part of collective of online troublemakers known as “Anonymous.”

I think they are a bit more than trouble-makers.  I think anyone charged for DDOS’ing a website is more than just a “trouble-maker.”  How about cyber-terrorists?  Didn’t Dmitriy Guzner just get criminally charged for doing that by the Department of Justice?

There was also Pekka.  How many kids did he kill in the name of Anonymous again?
