My Statement on Anonymous….a Farewell to the Hive

 

There was a time, I like Jeremy Hammond, would have gone to jail rather than give up fellow Anons. But you see, that was a naive me who believed in #Anonfamily, the idea of Anonymous and all the rest. But, as with most true believers who have the scales removed from their eyes, I see the awful truth. There are now, for great part, gangs of troll cliques, masquerading under a Guy Fawkes mask as if all of this is a giant, evil, cartoon ball. I had nearly 63 thousand followers, actors, musicians, hax0rs, producers, average folks, Anons…as I was adding 100 every two days, it didn’t take long for numbers to build. I must have done something to earn their follow. I helped who I could, posted information and news, was a sympathetic ear, and tried to shepherd #NewBloods in how to be good Anons. I never lied. My life has been too short for lying. I fought ISIS, Pedos,and most of all, animal abusers.

Lying, cowardice, deceipt, disloyalty, betrayal, are anathema to me, they are marks of the lowest kind of human, next to sadism, paedophilia, bestiality, animal abuse.

I still have no idea why I as attacked or shunned like some errant member of the Amish, but I have insights of the names behind the plot.

I have never, ever, to my knowledge, d0xed an Anon, and those who d0xed me, I have person documents, personal info I could have released, but will not, because d0xing Anons is not the Anon way.

I thank ALL the kind people who have supported me over the years, though my Mom’s death, through my never ending financial problems, my cousin’s murder, and all else. You will never know how much it meant. Ironically, some of those who gave me the most comfort, were non-Anons. I thank so many “big name” Accts for following me including @YourAnonNews @OccupyWallStNYC, and so many more. You activism and the changes you are trying to make, I respect.

But, when I was betrayed by a “best friend”, follow the money, it hurt, I thought this person was a person suffering like me who I could trust. He sent me pictures from the hospital, told me about his personal issues. I have not mentioned those, will not mention those.

So, it is with a heavy heart that I leave Anonymous. I was hoping I would leave it better. I tried hard to close GuZoo, and we did. I tried hard, by co-founding #d0xteamsix, to fight animal abusers, trophy hunters, but one of our d0xers turned against me, and thus, we terminated the team.

There is a Latin term, Cui bono, meaning, when some deed is done, who benefited? I know that the many peope who wrote me asking for help via DMs did not benefit from me leaving, the people who wrote me asking for RTs for their project did not benefit, but the question remains, why did it happen, and who did it.

Those who TRULY knew me, not my alleged “best friend’ apparently, those folks knew me to be a kind, truthful person who tried to help people.

But, there became a witchhunt…where a small crew bullied and attacked anyone who spoke up for me. Their goal was the destruction of my reputation. This is not  NOT the Anon way. Sabu still tweets with over 38000 followers.

I literally did the best I could, did not lie, and leave the Hive with only one regret, that I was not wiser in seeing the truth about the person I trusted. One who will betray their “best friend”, will betray you as well.

Mark my words, unless the cancer is cut out, the good will of Anonymous will disappear, supplanted by a fear of Anons, as bullying trolls to be avoided, and once this happens, the floodgates of law enforcement truly will open.

For non-Anons and Anons who were true friends, you made my life better for knowing you. I found good people all over the world, in all religions, in all colors, all sexes. I thank you for your great kindness to me when Mom was dying. It was a source of light when all around me was dark.

Whatever strangers, enemies, or friends think of me, my mission was to help people, beginning with Occupy, later with Anonymous, and mainly, to be a voice for the voiceless, children, animals, and nature. Insofar as I did any of that, I hold me head high as I leave the hive. I have so many good people to thank, to thank one would be to short others, so I know each of you I have interacted with in a caring spirit, know who I am directing that too.

For #OldFags like me, perhaps like the saying about Old Soldiers, we don’t die, we just fade away. A tip of my hat to the #OldFags, and to good #NewFags. #SailStrong.

And don’t forget Jeremy Hammond, Matt DeHart, and Barrett Brown…
and never forget Aaron Swartz, RIP

Thanks for reading this. I ask you only two things in my memory of anything positive I did….please be kind to animals, make their lives better, save them if possible, and lastly, do NOT let yourself be silenced by bullies and trolls. One you allow it, it never stops.

And remember, no matter WHO you are, you CANNOT tell people who can or can’t be an Anon or carry the name. If you think that, leave the Hive, you just don’t understand Anonymous at all.

So, I sail over the horizon, into the Sunset. Who knows what awaits over there. I’ve heard
“Beyond there be Dragons…well, that’s fine with me.”

Salaam / Shalom / Pax / Namaste.

I’ve decided this “New Anonymous” is not for me

Sadly, I have decided that I am no l am no longer an Anon. I joined because when we had a code…sure, we may have been trolls on 4Chan, but we didn’t go after our own. I deluded myself into thinking here was an #Anonfamily, that we took care of our own, but it only took a few lies, to turn Anons who had asked me for favors in DMs multiple times, to go after me like I was a pedo or Sabu. I had an interest in Anonymous. While I was an Anon, I sincerely tried to help fellow Anons, showed respect to #OldFags and #NewFags alike, and stressed the importance of #NewFags.

Anonymous was never about a Guy Fawkes mask, how many follows you had, how many “big accounts” who followed you, it was about a sense of trust, camaraderie, that we would not betray each other. I was daily given phone numbers and addresses, and I deleted most of them, because if my laptop was seized, I could not give up what I did not have.

I have had Anons trust me with things they did not trust their family with.

But, it is over. Apparently, Anons have changed, and I am a bigger target than Sabu ever was.

I never lied to you. I didn’t need to lie. The truth was sad enough. I went through truly the worst three years of my life, and I had the foolishness to share my feelings.

So don’t worry, I am taking the word “Anon” off my handle…so it is now Vyking Pyrate. TO the good Anons I worked with to fight ISIS, to fight animal  abusers, I will miss you, truly. You know who you are, and never abandoned me to the best of my knowledge. At the day I deactivated my acct, I had 62.9 thousand follows, and since i was gaining 50 followers a day, it would have been 63,000 the next day. To those who coordinated this campaign of lies and defamation against me, I pity you. You sold your honor cheaply, and it is gone forever….honor does not grow back, integrity does grow a new skin on snakes. Although I have d0xed people in the past for those who betrayed me, I was not going to dox you. You see, old school Anons don’t dox other Anons no matter what.

I miss my friends on Twitter…there were many who I enjoyed, and who I loved…and I hope, day to day, I made their lives more interesting, more empathetic, informed them, or if they were in show business, plugged their tunes, movie, tv-show, or play.

But, the witch hunts have gone down, Judas took his 30 pieces of silver, and suddenly, Anons are afraid to say what they want, afraid to defend people.

If this is the #NewAnonymous, I am glad I am not longer a part of it.

When Anons become trolls to Good People…

When Anons become trolls to good, decent people…make them fearful to speak their mind,to defend someone they believe in….it is not the Anonymous I ever signed up
to support. You can d0x cops, dox pedos, but if you dox fellow Anons, you have lost what our movement was about. Perhaps us #OldFags remember …but you are setting up a false idea of what Anonymous is for any #NewBloods….that Anons roam in packs, picking on
anyone that is out of favor with them, or anyone they could not co-opt to give credence to their “Op”.  You can use words like #Anonfamily, or “Ohai Bruh”…or “pl0x” or “d0x”….
but you have just become schoolyard bullies wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, and the REAL
Guy Fawkes, would be ashamed to have his name associated with you. If you study history, Guy jumped off the platform to hang himself because he wanted to rob the crown of the satisfaction of hanging him. Fawkes had courage…he needed no pack to back his play.

Those who let the bullies run Twitter

How do you think you have a hope of changing governments, protecting animals, making sure that Black Lives Matter, fight rape, fight pedos, if you can’t stand up to the Troll Mafia who suppress what you want to say…Fear on Twitter translates to Fear in the Real
World…and Fear never changed shit…Anger and Courage change shit.
