    January Global Idea: Re-anonimize

    I've been thinking about our last few globals and i have to say that the excitement seems to be wearing thin. the same ol' people in the same ol garb holding the same ol signs... through these many months we've forged friendships with our fellow anons. we talk online, we hang out IRL, and we can point each other out in a crowd of our own. As much as i enjoy the social aspect of all this i miss the thrill of anonymity, the excitement of not knowing anyone and being unknown, and the ever present feeling of paranoia. I say let's celebrate our one year anniversary of enturbulation by going back to what we started with: pure anonymity (or as close to it as we can).

    i propose that on the 17th of January we come to the protest dressed in something completely different than what we'd normally come in. this doesn't mean elaborate costumes, but merely covering up far more than we do now. return to the time when we didn't know each other and that everyone else in the crowd besides yourself could be a sciplant. don't just cover your face; cover your head, your arms, legs, body shape, and anything to make you unrecognizable at first glance. We did this kinda-sorta with sci vs spy but for the most part it was fairly easy to spot who was who. return to our roots. no one is a friend. we're all strangers to ourselves.

    All you'd really need to cover yourself well is a hoodie, a mask, or even a shirt ninja wrap with shades. GF masks preferred because it's the most common covering and gives a larger sense of unity. i'm sure you can get one offa amazon by mid-january. the bonus upshot of all this clothing is that it's colder than a titches' wit outside now that it's winter so you'll be nice a snug. sure, voices are a pretty dead give away for some people but you can always choose not to talk to anyone and remain anonymous.

    sure, some of us are more distinct than others regardless of clothes but it'd still be fun to TRY.

    So what says the hive? throw your ego's to the wind and refresh our anonymity for our 1 year anniversary.

    IMHO, strict anonymity is difficult IRL, for very practical reasons.

    Pretty difficult, really. A lot of us are really distinct.

    i didn't say it'd work 100% but the fun is in trying to trick each other. fuck, maybe even dress up as someone else if you know their wardrobe habits.

    I still don't know any of you IRL. It is VERY possible to stay that way. Its a little easier for me, however, because I didn't start the whole "relationship" thing i guess. I didn't start because I don't trust you sick bastards.

    There is no such thing as too hardcore.

    Also: Do want theme.

    I personally won't be doing this because I find masks uncomfortable as fuck-all, and 'cause I can't be arsed to anyway.

    Like the idea a lot though. It's been proposed here before.

    If folks would be so kind as to throw together some quick, one paragraph summaries of what's been going on in their local cells here, the hope is to get a nice website up compiling everything (kinda like Anonymous Resources, only with some more information about the groups). We could even *gasp* KEEP IT UP TO DATE!

    People should never have de-anonymized in the first place. In cinci, sure most of us know that this person over there is this screen name, but that's about it. I never give out info about myself and if asked, I answer with a white lie no matter how innocent seeming it is like what kind of pets do you have, what model is your car, etc. The less real info that people have about me, the less that can leak out, even accidentally, to the scilons.

    This is more fun that it sounds like it might be. We've had the handlers out here confused for months - they call us all by the wrong names, at least part of the time.
  14. Re: January Global Idea: Re-anonimize

    true:) this january will be my first protest and well, a) i'm absolutly inept socially and b) i don't kno any other anons in real life. (okay so the net IS real life but you know what i mean:)) not a problem:D
  15. Re: January Global Idea: Re-anonimize

    Also - this is fun. Trade signs with people. Make new signs. Bring new props. Normally don't hand out flyers? Try it this time.

    Of course, there are people who are more recognizable than others...regardless, I think this is a great idea. They think they know who we all are? Let's make them think again....

    What about those invisible masks for those with distinctive facial features or facial hair? Statistically speaking, an Anon out there MUST have a beard or something.

    Re: January Global Idea: Re-anonimize

    Silly though: would it be convienient also to make some mass identity drop in the forums? I mean, we could drop our nicknames and open a new account with a new nickname one day before the protest...

    Just saying...

    In every movement excitement wears off or goes thin and only in the cells, locations, or areas in which there aren't the following things: seriousness or doing it for the lulz and entertainment, creativity, or there aren't individuals that posses an eternal burning fire within them.

    A mind should not go to waste.
