hacking for social justice

Really, is that what you and your comrades at "Anonymous" call it?

You give off the aroma of a "concern troll."

Heh. Check my profile, funny mexican food dish.

Seriously though, and without sarcasm: I see that there is some good stuff in your profile. I especially like the speech you quote on your "About you" page. I like the variety of topics you discuss. Based only on the headlines of each forum topic, I think I probably agree with you on many conservative issues. You are a member since 2005, I since 2008.

Yes, I understand that you might think that I "smelled" like a concern troll. I knew that people might think that right from my first post. And that is why I truthfully stated some things in my first post. I openly discussed my perspective, my status as a non-hacker, my interest in technology and the rule of law, etc. Eventually (as I read and replied entries on that particular thread), I worked out (in public, so to speak) some self-understanding about WHY this topic interests me.

And here is what I came up with: they (the hacker group "Anonymous") are using leverage to pursue political (and Public Relations) agenda(s). Not sure where I got the "hacking for social justice" phrase from, but I think that some of the things I have seen posted on the internet out of Iran, China, and Egypt fall into that broad category. (More like posting video for social justice, not hacking). Anyway I picked it up somewhere. First time I have ever used it.

I was liberal-minded due to my upbringing until a couple of years after high school (graduated in 1981). Once I was not getting high, and started going to college my thinking was a bit clearer! I got an associates degree in math, and got a "A" in my first Computer Science course, but a "C" in my second computer science course, then did not take any more of those!

Then when I became a Christian, got married and had kids, then joined the Navy, becoming a conservative was a natural result. I have a degree in Math and Sociology, mainly because those were the 2 easiest topics for me in which to get an "off-campus" degree while I was in the Navy (from the NY board of regents). Sociology is basically indoctrination into all things liberal, and I knew that even back then, as a "baby" conservative (around 1988?). But it was my minor and I got upper-class credits in it by studying like crazy, taking and "passing" the GRE, then promptly forgetting as much as I could of that BS.

Obviously, like most people, I love to talk (type) about myself.

Also, it may be obvious that I think being called a troll is a bad thing. Heh.

Anyway, in case you did not read between the lines (both in this posting and in my profile with photo of me and my dog), I am a complex person but not a hacker. I am a family man, a "nuke" (working in commercial nuclear power), and a conservative, but not a hacker. You could call me a birther, but I am nowhere near a hacker. I may even (sometimes) be a "dirty old man".... etc etc you get the idea.... [by the way I love Ann Coulter's mind and like her attractive appearance! Are you truly "La Enchiladita", meaning a female? or are you just faking that?]. LOL

I have always been interested in conspiracy theories because I believe that they exist all over the place, given the simplest definition: "a secret between two or more people in order to pursue power or an agenda". So from my postings (again, in my profile, I assume you can see what topics I post on? since I can see yours? if not, tell me and I will change whatever setting to make my profile public) -- you can tell what my interests are. They are varied and lean towards the "conspiracy theory" category. But so far, this is the first on hacking and/or the group "Anonymous".

Besides, if I was in that group, I doubt that "concern troll" postings at FR would be very high on my "TO DO" list.

Fun replying to you though. Hope you take it in the spirit in which it is meant.
