Westboro Baptist Church tries to troll Anonymous

A few days ago a “Cease and Desist” letter from the shadowy hacktivist group known as Anonymous towards Westboro Baptist Church was published, warning the terrorist extremist church group to stop picketing funerals of fallen soldiers, to stop making vulgar and slanderous claims against certain groups of people, and to go back to their hometown and to leave people alone. In an interesting plot twist, Anonymous published a press release yesterday denying that it had sent that letter. Anonymous goes on to say that it was Westboro Baptist Church who actually created that letter in an attempt to lure unsuspecting Anonymous members into performing a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on the church’s servers. Calling it a “honeypot,” the church’s goal was to farm the IP addresses of those lured into attacking in order to turn around and sue them. However, Anonymous was unfazed, retaliating that the church “does not have enough to offer right now.” Anonymous pretty much gives a lengthy version of “we give your troll attempt a 2 out of 10” and tells WBC to go away as Anonymous is busy dealing with groups that are of actual importance. Anonymous doesn’t dismiss WBC completely though. Should the lulzfactor of dealing with WBC become lulzworthy enough, Anonymous will consider going after WBC. Until then, “don’t call us. We’ll call you.

  1. I have to say I was very interested when the first letter came out. I was hoping that the WBC was finally going to get what they had coming. Then when the anon issued release was sent out I was a bit shocked that somebody would have the balls to rattle the anon bees nest. Personally I never want to mess with them.

  2. I thought it was a bit odd that Anonymous would tackle WBC because Anonymous is a huge proponent of free and uncensored speech. It sort of goes against what Anon fights for.
