How do you know they didn't? Do you know what precautions they took? Or the scale of the attack? We're not in any position to judge their competence, since we don't have enough information to do so.
I could be a trained martial artist and carry a gun and have a bodyguard or two, and most would believe that I have taken proper precautions against a possible attack on the street. Actually, most would consider that total overkill. But if a group of fully equipped navy seals or some shit swarm me I'm still going to get my shit ruined.
Also, if we're going just by that video for some reason, the dude who made it said that PSN wasn't a target since they don't want to target the players. You sure you
watched it? =p
Actually, they are an organized group. They do have a leadership group that authorizes these attacks. Said leadership group was the ones who made the denial of the most recent attack on the PSN servers(scroll down to the paragraph next to the ps3 picture). They say that different people work with the different operations, but it's the same people running the show (AnonOps) and several former members can attest to it (some have). Membership to the group is open to get in, this is true. But you have to remain "Anonymous" to stay in, once your discovered, you're out.
Anonops =/= Anonymous.
