Anonymous attacks, beware!

Gang called "Anonymous" terrorizes the internet, says FOX in this incredibly stupid piece which includes e.g. stock footage of a van exploding.

Even though this is completely and utterly idiotic and really serves only to scare people, it makes me wonder whether this is just another step on a co-ordinated attack on anonymity on the internet. After all, if you can equate anonymity with terrorism, wouldn't people be more amenable to having to prove their identity whenever they are logging online? And that would mean turning the internet essentially into a controlled substance - a walled garden where you can play, but only if the owner lets you.
