In an apparent response to Westboro Baptist Church's stated intent to picket the funerals in Newtown, CT. Hactivist group Anonymous has posted what has to be one of the most daring internet assault plans in recent history. They aren't just taking down the WBC's websites, they've actually posted personal contact information on their members. Data includes address, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. They didn't stop there either, they've also gone after twitter feeds and posted a Whitehouse petition requesting revocation of the WBC's tax exempt status.

Additionally their warning this time is not only stark but surprisingly aggressive. I've been watching Anonymous for some time, but this is the first time I've ever seen them make such an explicit and comprehensive threat. This time they are not merely threatening to take down websites, this time they state:

We will render you obsolete. We will destroy you. We are coming.

I mean, it doesn't really get much more explicit than that now does it? In addition to the petition to revoke WBC's tax exempt status, they've also posted a petition to recognize WBC as a hate group. This one has already garnered over 110,000 signatures, pretty much guaranteeing a presidential response.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
