That's because in most peoples minds, Anon. is the lesser of two evils.

Isn't it?

London was pretty awesome.

That was the best protest ever, great blog post. If only the Internet has been invented back when most people cared about protesting, we;d have been unstoppable.

That's the most amazing protest ever. Seeing an internet culture transplanted into real life.

Now if it was only in LA, then we would get somewhere!

500 people rick-rolling the UK Scientology head office. It was at this point I saw the corners of the cops' mouths twitch into smiles as they realised it was ok: we were from the internets.

London is bigger than LA and is (arguably) more important.
That said LA definitely has control over media, and also has the highest density of scientologists.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I just love to watch Mark Bunkers videos on this, they fill me with joy unknown to me for so long.



They said that no one would show.  ::)

You do have the right of Confederate flags...

As for the Scientology protests, it seemed to me like an orgy of internet trolls somehow manifested themselves outside the phosphoresence of the computer screen and began shouting obscure internet memes. I'm sure scientologists thought a lot about their beliefs after that triumph of Right to Assembly. Let us pray Anonymous never embarasses themselves, or humanity, again.

I smiled at the Rick Rolling, though.

countries like britain are very less ready to accept things like scientology.

an american comedian (i think it was rich hall or somthing) once said somthing like " a guy in britain finds the virgin mary in a grilled cheese sandwich he's made and phones his friend who just says "wow thats wierd, but in america it starts a cult following and the sanwich was sold for $17000, worst part is, the sandwich had a bite taken out of it."

i so wish i was at that protest and i hope the V masks are going to be a recuring trend in protests.

arn't internet jokes wasted on high up scientologists, i'm fairly sure they won't undertsand the insult in being "rick roll'd".

Man if only Darfur was this popular, maybe they need some scientologists. Honestly I don't think it's anything to be proud of. That energy could have been used for much more positive things. But sadly starving children apparently aren't worth it. Of course I don't agree with what Scientology does. But I would have rather seen all that effort going towards raising money for a charity rather then just protesting Scientology. The value of the masks alone would have been gladly accepted by any charity.

And why doesn't the OP just change the title to "Scientology bashing". I mean does it make you guys feel better, the lack of actual discussion that goes on here is a joke.
