I have given my support to Anonymous movement (yes, i classify them as a movement even though they disagree); however, a couple of days ago i came across the video on YouTube titled “Anonymous - Operation DarkNet” where one Anonymous boasts about the beginning of the operation to shut down an anonymous hosting provider on Tor. According to the timeline of the events Anonymous has shut down this hosting provider after finding links to the sites that they host and there they came across child pornography.
Now many will ask, what is wrong with shutting down abuse of children. And of course, if these sites were truly the sites of child abuse (and not a play on words done by Anonymous), it seems reasonable. However, to this day Anonymous were claiming to support freedom of speech. For example, when they were attacking capitalist insitutions which are complicit in murder by the nature of paying for wars, Anonymous wouldn't completely destroy them. This (at least to me) means that Anonymous takes free speech and resistance to censorship to the area of a principle which can't be crossed. I believed that they would support freedom of speech even when they disagreed with it, and thus i called them comrades. But here they are shutting down the entire hosting provider (the anonymous hosting provider even) just because they had run into a site that they host.
Here is a good post of somebody on Tor:Attacking the onion is the most pathetic shit anonymous has ever done. It's like burning a city down because you don't like the red light district, it's also hypocrisy in the most obvious way. "We want freedom, but only for people who think like us". The claim that Anonymous is a pluralist society with a plethora of mindsets is falsified by this, and there's no reason to support their actions anymore. And a fair warning: Poking the bear isn't a good idea, people who surfed the onion before this "deep web sooo mysterious" bullshit, which became popular among anonymous, are not exactly the kind of people you want to piss off.*
