Westboro Church gets spanked by Anonymous
If the movie “Hackers” taught us anything, it’s you don’t want to mess with sexy, counterculture revolutionaries with something to prove. That’s why the Westboro Baptist Church made a bit of a mistake when they sent an open letter to Anonymous telling them to “bring it” after it was rumored the group was planning on crashing their sites (which was apparently a play by the WBC to gain attention).
Well, you play with fire and you get burned, boy! It didn’t take long for Anonymous to hack the gibson, and as of right now, they’ve successfully been taken down.
Now I’m not the biggest fan of this kind of guerilla action (mostly because I’m scared to death of getting my gibson hacked), but it’s hard to feel bad for these fuckfaces. What I worry about is the free publicity they get from these kinds of actions. The Westboro Baptist Church seems to always manage to find a way to make it in the news, don’t they?
