Anonymous isn’t known for subtlety. Just ask HBGary Federal.
About a week ago I was officially hired by SemiAccurate. I hadn’t gotten around to posting about it, because I’ve been a lot of fun, writing some really interesting articles.
The Spammer Scammers are going after your Blizzard Battlenet account now. I always check my spam box before emptying it, and this one caught my attention, because it’s really well written. None of the usual grammar mistakes, none of the misspellings. It’s really quite well written
