After being blocked by Google+ for violating community standards, members from hacktivist collective Anonymous have decided to go into the business of online connecting and launch their own social hub.
The developer behind the project, Presstorm, who according to its website engages in investigative journalism, reportedly set up AnonPlus.com after Anonymous' Google+ page and the profiles of several members were deleted from the social network. So far, the site is just a splash page with a message that describes the mission of the project. A message from Presstorm promises “freedom of expression over an anonymous platform,” but stresses the group is not interested in fighting “anything but oppression or anyone except those who wish to oppress.”
Presstorm said although the site is essentially “the activists dashboard,” those interested in the network merely because of its link to Anonymous “are not who we built this for.”
“You are sheep and although we can try to herd you towards intelligence we cant stop the wolfs,” the message reads. “For those seriously seeking a way to coexist without the oppresion (sic) of the world governments please come vist (sic) us and chat. If you wannna (sic) help ask around, be patient and engage in some intreasting (sic) conversations. You never know what you will learn.”
