The reason "they" can't be caught is that "anonymous" isn't a set group of people, there is no leadership or anything either, people come and go, anyone can claim they are part of "anonymous"

They'll catch people every once in a while sure but it has no real effect.

Yes, this is understood easily enough, hence my use of the words "associating" and "working under the moniker". "They" is the term I use in reference to those that claim to be associated with the thousands upon thousands of vigilante (or cyber terrorists depending on what you read) hackers that may or may not be the ones who hacked Sony, the US government and other organizations that need to be brought to justice. I think what we have here is a regular "Justice League" of unbathed computer nerds/super hero wanna-bes spread across this country and around the world, hunkered over glowing computer screens in their parents basements, seeking to exact cyber mass destruction of epic proportions. All the while zit faced web wheelers every where cheer them on. Justice has finally come! You are probably are right about catching them wont help much but action will be taken none-the-less and thank you for parroting what others have already said.

The funniest part of this whole thing is that Anonymous doesn't realize that if they want to change government policy they need a lobbyist. They need to get a non-profit 501(c), and to get people to donate money so that they can pay a lobbyist to petition and woo government officials to change the "unfair" laws.

Yes, Anonymous. That is how the US government works.
