Anonymous, which last week threatened to pulverize the Playstation Network because of Sony’s support for the proposed SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), backed off its consumer-irking belligerence and this week shifted to threatening just the executives and sites of Sony and Nintendo.
Anonymous—or people purporting to be members of the group—last week uploaded a video to Twitter in which the group threatened to “destroy” Sony’s network because of the company’s support for SOPA. From the Anonymous video:
This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company off a bridge. Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to Sony Company and associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the Internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not.
