So there was the time a bunch of you really, really hated a simple post about Anonymous inspiring tee shirts and a donation to charity. And there was me, right there in that GIF, responding. But we’re getting a couple of impassioned editorials out of it, one pro and one anti, so it’s clear that it’s high time we had the discussion about whether Anonymous identifiers like tees, masks, patches, and stickers are a terrible, terrible idea or a really great one. While our guest is writing up his op/ed, we at Cryptosphere Global HQ would like to encourage you to take this waiting time to buy something nice for yourself or a loved one from the FreeAnons or WikiLeaks store.
