1200 People Agree To Boycott Sony With Anonymous

If you own a Sony console, you've probably been paying attention to the attacks Anonymous has levied against Sony and the PSN. How fighting a corporation by screwing over a bunch of your fellow consumers makes sense is beyond me. Regardless, Anon marches on.

This time they're planning a sit-in to disrupt Sony's retail store business worldwide. Come next Saturday, be prepared to shop for a Sony product somewhere that doesn't have a giant Sony Style sign outside.

A Facebook event is organizing Anonymous to ask their moms and dads for rides to nearby Sony Style stores. After they get money for lunch from their ride, Anonymous will sit in and disrupt the normal Saturday business of people looking to buy Bravia TVs, Vaio computers, and of course, PlayStation 3s.

If you didn't think the whole thing was stupid yet, you should know that many of those attending have left their privacy options on Facebook off. With them having already failed at remaining "Anonymous", you'd have to wonder how successful Operation Sony will be on April 16th.

Has anyone else forgotten why this whole thing started? Seems like someone's 15 minutes of internet fame are up.
