A leaderless group on the internet. Anonymous could be anyone and therefore, it is primarily split into divisions of hacktivism, lulz and protesting. The hacktivism (don't think I need to explain this) section of it is the most well known form of Anonymous, however many people do not understand that this is only a subsection of Anonymous and not the entire thing. The "Lulz" section are the people who like to... make lulz. The protesting section of it is when people protest against something (like Scientology) wearing Guy Fawkes masks to conceal their identity. The term "Moral fags" is a term to tease the people who protest and use hacking for purposes other than lulz in the Anonymous group according to the ED article (I don't advise you go there).
Anyone could be Anonymous, even you! Fox news won't like you, though.

1. (n),(a) someone who does not reveal their identity, generally in regards to published material

2. (n) the collective name for anonymous people on the internet, generally in regards to 4chan. Most anons are stupid /b/tards that couldn't print their own name in lua or python, but are looked upon by many as hackers on steroids. Although they are the amalgamation of every anonymous (non-tripfag) 4chan poster, they are still looked at as a homogeneous group by the less perceptive; who clearly either think anonymous means "that guy who wrote a lot of quotations" or haven't seen anons insult and flame each other over the slightest disagreement, which they do all the time (using language like ur a fucking retart). The stereotype of anonymous being some "elite hacker group" was further perpetuated when the script kiddie "h4x0rs", lulzsec, portrayed anonymous as a proper hacking army. The old media had a humongous erection, and even further cemented in people's minds that "anonymous" was an organized and clever hacktivism group. Of course, some anons, especially the 13-year old "hey /g/ DDOS this kid's blog cuz he wuz mean 2 me at school" type, are fond of embracing this depiction. And, as we all know, anyone who takes the internet, and especially 4chan srsly clearly lacks purpose and should an hero.

A group of script kiddies from 4chan, these internet terrorists act like they are doing the internet a favor by ddossing random sites they don't like and hiding from authorities. Typically they are 13-15 year olds who think using TOR is super leet-haxor material. They like to silence those who criticize them with ddos attacks.
"We are anonymous we do not forgive blah blah blah."
"So you think you have some kind of power by copying and pasting that shit around the internet?"
"Oh, you question anonymous? Don't worry, we'll take care of you."
"Thank you for protecting and serving your OWN agendas and personal interests you fucking pieces of garbage."

Self proclaimed "Hackers on Steroids". Bunch of 14 year olds who probably never have been socially accepted at school. Usually making agressive comments towards African-Americans. Not exactly a powerful force due to the fact if a situation occurs in which their community (4chan) shuts down , they will whine like sissy bitches. Secondly , no one IRL knows about them , let alone cares lol. But hey , it's for the lulz right?
John: Dude , Anonymous is getting stronger.
Sam: You mean that group of faggots protesting outside of the Scientology thing?
John: Yea! Theyre gonna rule the world one day!
Sam: Oh please , not even Apple is scared of them.

Bunch of mc donalds employees who have seen v for vendetta one too many times. Some of them do it for the lulz which is acceptable, but some of them actually think they're some sort of revolutionary movement - lame.
Anonymous is made up of white arts degree students, who are never going to face any real challenge or hardship in their tame lives, so they compensate by trying to be part of anonymous.

A large group of cowards sitting behind their computers being assholes, on the internet, just because they can get away with it through their anonymity and supposed proxies. They usually come from 4chan while other members of anonymous always somehow roots to 4chan even if they came from another website.

Anonymous has two purposes, to create trouble (trolling), and to masturbate furiously (fapping) emptying out their children as a part of their daily routine.

They create trouble so that they may laugh at it (calling it lulz). Anonymous will laugh at anything and anyone that man has ever thought of or seen. At the end of the day, they will laugh, masturbate, and sleep.

If one is targeted by anonymous they must treat them the same as trolls are treated. Don't react, don't respond, they'll lose interest and they'll eventually move on.

As a more broad term:
Anonymous is people without a face or identity. Anyone can be anonymous, as long as they choose not to show their face and keep their identity private.

In a way Anonymous could be said to represent the general masses of today's society that is unbound to the burden of one's own identity.
Anonymous faps to porn, hates on everything, faps to porn, hates on everything, faps to porn, hates on everything, faps to porn, time to sleep.

Despite all this, one can never be completely Anonymous on the internet even with proxies.
"There is no way to hide on the internet, no matter how hard you cover your tracks you can get caught. You're not invincible." -Matthew George (Anonymous)

Anonymous could be considered geniuses.

Anonymous could be considered retards.

Anonymous is sometimes even brilliant.

To learn more about Anonymous please visit /b/ (google b) to create your own opinion on the matter. It's not that bad of a place. Go browse with an open mind. Don't mind the gay porn, gay furries, cartoon ponies, dicks, gore, white supremacy, misogynist beliefs, men wearing woman's clothing and exposing their penises (called traps), pictures and moving pictures (.gif) of dead people, moving pictures of people dying, FBI luring with child pornography, young boy pornography, infinitely re-posted content etc etc and just see what anonymous is with your own eyes.

Anonymous members generally wear Guy Fawkrd masks. Anonymous itself is an idea in which anyone can follow. True members of anonymous, also called "Anons" believe that humanity deserves freedom in all ways and hate censorship. Many Anons participate in protests that are generally anti-government based. Anonymous consists of hacktivists, activists, and normal believers. They are legion, they do not forgive, they do not forget, expect them.
Person 1: Have you heard of Anonymous?
Person 2: Yeah, those hackers kind of scare me.
Person 1: Well, they aren't all hackers, and I think the entire idea of Anonymous is Pretty cool.
