It's On! WBC vs. Anonymous

The group of computer hackers known as "Anonymous" are now prepared to do battle with the Westboro Baptist Church. Anonymous is, perhaps, best known for their battles with the Church of Scientology. There were reports last week that Anonymous had initiated the fight with WBC, but the group claims the "open letter" to the hateful church was, in fact, created by the church itself.

The hackers were not happy with the "God Hates Fags" church pretending to be them, so they issued an actual open letter:
"We know that YOU in fact posted the Open Letter supposedly from Anonymous.

We know that you thrive on attention.

We know that you are short of money.

We know that this is a trap.

We know how you work. You don’t give a flying fart about what your God thinks. But you know that putting God and Fag in a sentence together is guaranteed to make someone angry. You push it. You really push it. But you stay within the law. And then when some poor fool snaps, you sue them for infringing upon your rights.

Some of Anonymous thinks you’re the worlds greatest Trolls. This is bollocks. You’re in it for the money.

No doubt some of us will fall for it. But know this: most of us don’t give a damn. You are shamelessly riding on the /b/andwagon after Anonymous’ recent mass media coverage in order to get more publicity and more idiots to sue."
The Westboro folks are not smart to fuck with these Anonymous people. Scientology has billions of dollars and had trouble with them. The WBC lunatics don't have L. Ron Hubbard money, and any lawsuits they are planning will not work when trying to stop an internationally based collective of computer hackers. But I will certainly enjoy this drama as it plays out.
