http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/%22Anony...Scientology%22

personally i hope they wipe each other out, because there is no way i want to have one iota of respect for 4chan or encyclopedia dramatica jerks

The Internet-based group "Anonymous" has released statements on YouTube and via a press release, outlining what they call a "War on Scientology". Church of Scientology related websites, such as religiousfreedomwatch.org have been removed due to a suspected distributed denial-of-service-attack (DDoS) by a group calling themselves "Anonymous". On Friday, the same group allegedly brought down Scientology's main website, scientology.org, which was available sporadically throughout the weekend.
Several websites relating to the Church of Scientology have been slowed down, brought to a complete halt or seemingly removed from the Internet completely in an attack which seems to be continuous. The scientology.org site was back online briefly on Monday, and is currently loading slowly.
On Monday, the group released a video titled: "Message to Scientology" on YouTube concerning their intentions to attack the Church of Scientology. A robotic voice on the video begins with "Hello leaders of Scientology. We are Anonymous," and continues by explaining their motivations: "Over the years we have been watching you, your campaigns of misinformation, your suppression of dissent and your litigious nature. All of these things have caught our eye. With the leakage of your latest propaganda video into mainstream circulation the extent of your malign influence over those who have come to trust you as leaders has been made clear to us. Anonymous has therefore decided that your organisation should be destroyed." The message goes on to state that the group intends to "expel Scientology from the Internet". As of Wednesday, the video had been viewed 370,347 times, favorited 2,473 times, and is currently YouTube's top third video of the day.
...


if this video is any indication, it seems like the assailants mean business....



The "Message to Scientology" video was highlighted as the "YouTube Video of the Week" by The Michigan Daily. Commenting on the video, the piece states "if this video is any indication, it seems like the assailants mean business". In a blog post on USA Today's website, Jess Zielinski wrote that it was "not a shock that hackers hold a grudge against Scientology," and in a followup post on another USA Today blog, Angela Gunn wrote that "those of us who remember ... the adventures of Operation Clambake are fascinated to see this kind of thing flare up again". Blogging for Wired magazine, Ryan Singel wrote about the incident in a piece on Wednesay titled "War Breaks Out Between Hackers and Scientology -- There Can Be Only One". Singel wrote that the Project Chanology wiki page "directs Anonymous members to download and use denial of service software, make prank calls, host Scientology documents the Church considers proprietary, and fax endless loops of black pages to the Church's fax machines to waste ink". According to Wired, "The Church of Scientology did not immediately respond to a call for comment".
The viewpoints expressed in the video are echoed on the "Project Chanology" website, an open source of information and direction for those within Anonymous, which talks of tactics such as blackfaxing and prank calling alongside other "real-life" methods of attack. The satirical website Encyclopedia Dramatica also has a similar page devoted to "Project Chanology".

They actually mentioned this on the radio this morning. I wonder how much hentai it would take to submerge that particular cult?

I wasn't aware Anon was capable of doing something like this. They've been keeping up since the beginning of the week, which is a long fucking time for anything to last on 4chan.

By far the best part is how they hacked the Scientology hotline to play Fresh Prince of Bel Air

also, if anyone cares, here's the secret documents the Scientologists don't want made public.

People pay thousands of dollars to be able to see this, it's a lucrative opportunity!

I take it you weren't in on that Jew bitch/teacher/dominatrix that got her shit ruined at the beginning of the year?

Perfect way to start things off, the chans are getting way more aggressive.

Scientology really deserves it. They're the largest organized cult in the Americas and have actually done tons of heinous shit. Putting rattlesnakes in peoples' mailboxes, outright killing others, etc.

I get the impression that some channers are really going to 'get it' as a result of all this.

Outright killing people? Like, who?

P.S I take it that last post was the reason Spetznaz got banned?

Nah, he thought he'd be funny in Seths serious thread, so someone decided he has never really been funny and needs to shut the hell up.

It has been said before that this raid would fail, and although we do not see that happening at this moment, we as a network have taken a vote and decided that this raid on Church of Scientology was not done correctly.

It has come to our attention that this raid has evolved into more than Anonymous attacking Co$, the raid has turned into namefagging, giving people an area to attack.

This is not what the raid originally started as. Partyvan declares this as a threat to the network, and Anonymous alike. We have been under constant botnet attacks, 711chan hacked, and tons of drama over this. You guys did a very poor job of staying Anonymous. It's obvious that a lot of you broke rules 1, and 2.

We are sorry to inform you that any more of this Scientology stuff will no longer be allowed on this network due to the epic amounts of spam, namefagging, and bullshit that goes on.

You may feel free to use our Wiki as a base, but 711chan will no longer support the 'raid' either.

Long live Anonymous.

TL;DR: Decentralize.

For those who want to continue this, please join this network instead.

/server -m irc.esylum.net -j #xenu
711chan in whole will be back online shortly. Just stick with us guys. We love you.
My guess is that without a dedicated chan nobody's going to give a fuck anymore.

So much for that!

Errr.... Just because Chan wants to go home now doesn't mean it's over. Now they are now going to set them self up to die by saying "no more".

BTW, what does TL;DR mean?

"Too Long; Didn't Read." Or something along those lines. The way it's used there is to sum up the whole previous statement for lazy readers.

If the Partyvan Wiki's still up it might have a chance, but 711chan is where most of the coordination went down, and I don't see it working as well with an IRC instead of a message board.

I could be wrong, Anon's a crafty bunch.

Well, it's been more like 13 days, but it was only just beginning to recieve media attention.

It's not a serious problem, either, they're just being really stupid about some kids messing with their site.

I don't see this ending in anything but failure for Anonymous. You can't expect them to annoy Scientology into disbanding.

I'm really big on misinformation, so they might do another big hit in a true Anonymous way. Hiding behind blaming other "outside" people.

I don't think they ever thought that would happen. But they are becoming widely known among the common people which = fame. And fucking with the Scientologist and getting away with it would be a big win.
