Original Sub-Headline: "Time Warner paid a fee for each Guy Fawkes mask sold." This should really say they "receive a fee" or "is paid a fee", otherwise the story looks like they are paying a fee each time a mask is sold.

Newsflash: large corporations make virtually everything that we buy. The only surprising thing here is that this should be a surprise to anyone. And of course most hackers will eventually take jobs working in computer security for large corporations, developing new methods to prevent hacking.

From the article: "When they appear in public to protest censorship and what they view as corruption, they don a plastic mask of Guy Fawkes." Yes let's take issue with "what they view as corruption" because some forms of moral decay and depravity when done in the name of country and corporate profit are actually o.k.

Its amusing to know that Anonymous is paying into the big pockets of Corporate America, all the while feeling safe and secure behind a silly plastic mask.

Get three jobs, one just does not pay enough anymore. But things are just getting better all the time. Thing about Guy Fawkes is he was an agent working to bring the Catholic church back to England. Not sure if he is a good example for change. Ironic that the Catholic church is today making a come back in England. Without the barrels of gunpowder that Fawkes was stockpiling under the house of Parliament.As a side note, King James was almost blown up too as he had planned a visit to parliament.

Is not intentionally blocking commerce on a website censorship? To be honest this committing the crime to protest the crime sounds more like a Tea Party tactic than any Republican or Democrat strategy.
