Anonymouse is told to “go away”

Facebook’s marketing director, Randi Zuckerberg is rallying to banquish Anonymouse. Zuckerberg said at an event on cyberbullying this week that Anonymouse (sister to our very own Onymouse) must “go away”. We are unsure where Anonymouse is being banquished to or whether this is code for a bullet to the head as in “make that problem go away”. Zuckerberg said that Anonymouse is a bad influence and that people use the mouse to accomplish bad deeds. 

“I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors.”

But how does one hide behind a mouse? We know that Anonymouse is powerful (she is often seen clutching a large meat cleaver) but c’mon, this is a mouse! And a girl mouse, at that!

This is not the first time that Anonymouse has come under fire. Eric Schmidt, Google CEO, called Anonymouse “dangerous”. I know for a fact that at the time of this claim, Anonymouse was sitting at Cafe Trieste drinking a cup of Earl Grey. And at that point, I could only imagine her being dangerous in the kitchen as she prepares her world-famous English scones with clotted cream.

We’re determined to get to the bottom of this story and will be updating you as we hear more.
