"Anonymous" vs The Church of Scientology
I'm rather surprised that there isn't a discussion topic on this. For those that don't know a recent coordinated DDoS attack on numerous Scientology-related web sites signaled the beginning of what some are terming a war against the Church of Scientology. This stemmed from the removal of an "edited highlights" video of Tom Cruise speaking about Scientology from YouTube after the Church cited copyright violations. To many this was deemed to be the last straw in a long series of perceived strong-arm tactics by the Church to silence criticism and dissent about its motives.
A very loosely coordinated group of ordinary folks, ex-Scientology members, and yes, even some hackers are organizing protests across the globe in front of Church of Scientology locations on February 10th.
Even though the group has no official structure it's receiving positive press from major news outlets and publications. "Anonymous" points out that it is not protesting the belief system of Scientology per se
but instead seeks to increase awareness of the alleged brainwashing and conditioning methods condoned by the Church organization as well as seek the revocation of the Church's tax exempt status.
There's really a lot of information that I can't even begin to touch upon, so instead I'll point you to some very relevant links:http://xenu.nethttp://enturbulation.orghttp://whyaretheydead.nethttp://www.xenutv.com
