Definitely could have spent that time doing something cooler...
So this is weird. Anonymous, the international network of vigilante ‘hacktivists,’ have just hacked into the Neopets server.
This news comes as a bit of a shock, considering that just a few days ago members of Anonymous vowed to take action against white supremacists and the alt-right movement. As far as we can tell, Neopets has no affiliation with the alt-right, so this just seems like a big waste of time and energy.
To make things even more confusing, no one really even knows what Anonymous did to change the Neopets website. When you visit neopets.com, you are greeted with a message from Anonymous claiming that they have taken over:
However, all you have to do is click the X in the top right corner, and then you can just go about accessing Neopets as if nothing had happened.
So yeah, we don’t really know what Anonymous is after, but we know for sure that they could have spent their time doing something else.
