There's nothing to discuss.

Haha, yeah. The Scientology website has been down quite a few times. I'm sure some of the others ones have too but I didn't check those. Apparently there is some kind of 5000$ bounty on Anon.

Anon delivers, motherfuckers.

This is a really interseting battle and I'm lovin' it. Scientology is a powerful cult, and much of their power is their ability to hunt down and destroy their enemies. The current "Fair Tax" that Mike Huckabee is propositing? The entire movement was actually started by Scientologists as a way to combat the IRS, which was challenging their status as a tax-free organization in the 90's. The Scientologists eventually won that battle, but this survives as a way to destroy the IRS. Think about that - Scientologists beat the IRS.

In a way, these two enemies were made for each other - Anonymous likes to annoy people, particularly self-important people. Nobody takes themselves more seriously (over a more ridiculous premise) than Scientologists (watch the Tom Cruise video, where he declares that Scientologists are the only people that can help humanity). Scientologists go after and destroy a target. Anonymous is, well, a crowd. A name. An idea. How do you seek out and destroy it? How do you kill an idea (see - War on Terror)?

Most importantly, Scientology's largest vulernability is their public perception. They are very conscious of their public image, and Anonymous is built around exposing the gulf between public perception and reality. It's going to be really, really interesting how this plays out.

Yes yes yes. I hope this doesn't peter out in the long run.

I mean it feeds their claims of persecution but no one believes those claims except people who are already scientologists and who already believe they are persecuted anyways.

I read one news article which referred to anon as a "wacky bunch" which seemed almost sympathetic (as opposed to other news organizations.) Let me see if I can find the link... couldn't find it but here's another good one from the National Post:

Honestly, until a little while ago, i always just thought Scientology was just some wacky club that certain celebrities joined for some reason... until i realized/ discovered just how fucking dangerous they really are.

First off they have their own freaking secret police

and secret operations

They're rickrolling the phones at $cientology HQs worldwide. This is how all wars should be fought.

They'll get bored and give up in a week, but it'll be a fun week.

Seriously, can't you just see the President announcing at a morning press briefing that many of our strategic positions have been rickrolled by the enemy but assuring the public that we're going to stay the course and triumph?

oof. finally! this could get interesting. :D

i always get offered "free stress tests" from scientologists in the subway. they sit around with their volcano books and weird contraptions just waiting to lure you in and steal all of your worldly possessions. CREEPS.

There was a world wide scientology raid today.

I want to see the day when anon says "We did it for the lulz and we won".

Some general coverage. (http://forums.megatokyo.com/index.php?showtopic=1728579&st=0)

I love this.

I'm pretty pumped about this whole project and have been following it very closely and yesterday was a huge success (well except for New Zealand lol).

This video is a great summary of 02/10/08
Anonymous vs Scientology 10/02/08 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTxK6XEzZDk)

And I'm proud to say that the second picture looks like it's Danish:cool:

02-11-2008, 06:31 AM
The picture where it says Scientology hjernevasker. That's from Norway I think.

02-11-2008, 06:31 AM
Oh, well... it'd could've been Danish. Same fucking words anyways.

Maybe if these people didn't act like idiotic children there would be some sort of impact. If you're a Scientologist and you look out of your window and you see "longcat is looooooong" you're just going to laugh to yourself and go back to thinking about Xenu for a while.

lol we wear V for Vendetta masks we're so cool scientology is stupid.
