The Birth Of "Anonymous"

Dear Dibbell,

I actually enjoyed reading your article, "The Assclown Offensive: How to Enrage the Church of Scientology". I heard about the group Anonymous, maybe a year ago, but never really knew what they really stood for or did. I was always under the impression they just hacked websites, just to hack them. The reason I like this article so much is because it revealed the true story on the creation of this group. Its amazing how a common enemy or belief can really bring random individuals together. This is a group of people who never met, but some how can operate as an efficient machine.  It must have been the common goal they all shared. They wanted to fight against the church of Scientology, who they believed were attempting to manipulate and influence the public. I think you can find evidence in of this happening in any social network, press release, advertisement, etc. Regardless, they were pulled to take them on. Personally I'm slightly torn on whether to be for or against the current actions of the group. 

I think it would be best for Organizations to keep their protest and rebellion to the internet and social media. By entering and disrespecting a persons place of worship is taking it to a completely different level. By running into a building greased up throwing sticnk bombs, does just that. At the end of the day every individual has the right to worship who and what they want , especially behind close doors. If annyonmus is worried about the negative affects on the public done video media, then thats where they should focuse thier "attack".  But again, that's just my opinion.
