Guy Fawkes Day (wikipedia.org)

This reminds me.. whatever happened to Anonymous' vows to take down Facebook today? Are they still standing on that?

Somehow Guy Fawkes is becoming the Che Guevara of our time. Ironic that a mask is the symbol of resistance today.

I just hope it doesn't become too much politicised through all the OSW stuff and that someone still cares to keep the lulz alive.

I think the idea is that you bail on your bank and get a different one, or possibly none.

Although personally I'd advise against a run on the banks, it's never worked out well at any point in history.
