The term "participant" seems to be used rather vaguely here. Participants in what? Scientology protests, website attacks, or both? As I read it, it seems to refer to Scientology protesters who haven't taken part in website attacks. -- 04:42, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Nobody cares about mainstream media anymore. I don't know why it is a requirement of this site to cite it. I got the feeling people will go it alone, without mainstream media.
Its not a requirement of this site. In fact much of this article is based on irc conversations - which are definitly not "mainstream news sources" (or news sources whatsoever). Bawolff 00:09, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Crackpots? Heh, they've always been called out.

i would say that, as in all cases involving anon, motivation is irrelevant.

Co$ puppet/fake arrest[edit]

the 18yr old that was arrested by the scilons has a scapegoat they pull out of their closest,imo. I have seen no info on his trial and the arrest itself is no more then a press release by the scilons. this makes me think that they are trying to delcare a win even that the kid they have is nothing more then on of their own being used a posterboy or some BS. please consider that in how your article is worded. If you doubt the Co$ would do such a thing just look into their history.

How anonymous![edit]

Since the Church of scientology includes training in knocking the hats off people at 50 paces, using gnarly 'OT Powerz' it's as reasonable to assume Scientology action behind every blown-off-hat as to assume that every 'anonymous' action by unnamed people claiming to be anonymous is from the same people who brought you the anti-Scientology activities that have been so much fun :)




What do these people think they're going to accomplish by DDoSing some servers? Justice? Public opinion in their favor? Resolution of the case in favor of TPB?

What am I saying; they're just doing it because they think it's funny. They're basically TPing company property. I'd be quite all right with it if they were all caught and fined. Wtachi (talk) 04:58, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
