Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

Operation Party Hard Ten Years later

“Operation Party Hard” celebrated the birthday of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard with protests at Church outposts across the world. In New York close to 300 people did their best to hide their faces from Scientology’s cameras to air their grievances with the Church, though Anons assured the handful of reporters in attendance that over 9,000 others were attending similar events around the world. Protests began in Australia on March 15, 2008, and were followed by protests in major cities worldwide including Brussels, London, Seattle, Phoenix, Manchester, and Los Angeles.

Originally, Anonymous was a loosely connected group of similar-minded people from all over the world who networked online. Anonymous has no leaders, and for the most part, anyone can join Anonymous. Members of Anonymous keep their personal information and real names hidden from the public view and typically from each other. that helps to support the decentralized framework of the group.
