    Have the hackers crossed an ethical line? This religious nut group erased any ethical restraints long ago. Unfortunately this will not change their opinions or intentions.

    They're hackers. Most of what they do is unethical.

    That said, I can't say I feel too bad about them exposing the personal information of a group like Westboro.

    Maybe I should have asked if they returned from crossing the line? :)

    Very true. Should something that's ethical be considered law? What I'm implying is, should we consider this act legal? Honestly, I love this kind of stuff. While most others would just sit around and bitch and complain about how we should go about banning guns or not (including myself) these guys are doing something about their situation.

    Do I really hope someone does harm to these assholes? No. But I do hope that the hate they spew can be eliminated from...whether that be via fear from good people, new laws classifying these people as ASSHOLES and allowing police to escort them away from anything they are protesting (or use appropriate force).

    I think you misread my post. I said Westboro erased ethical restraints long ago.... (or rather, when I said "religious nut group" I was referring to the Westboro idiots.)

    you shouldn't even need to recognize someone as a hate group to prevent them from protesting at a funeral. If there's any time a person is entitled to complete privacy, it's when they are grieving their loss.

    What is this going to do? Some nutjobs are going to go attack these idiots at their homes, or what? You're only going to embolden them and that is unethical anyways, so we shouldn't want that. I understand the need to lash out at people like this but hate breeds hate. When will people realize that...

    It's probably wrong of me to hope that someone burns their filthy, incestuous church to the ground and then pisses on the ashes, but...

    WBC is a scam.

    They try to entice people into physically harming them so they can sue, and they do so while hiding behind their first amendment rights. Hell I wouldn't even be shocked if those Phelps assholes didn't even believe a word they say about God hating fags, etc. Every time there is talk of protesting them, they get in the news, and the chance of riling somebody up to the point of physical harm. Honestly, if these people would be simply ignored, they would likely go away.

    Absolute scum of the earth however.

    Go Hackers!

    Not saying it would be a good thing, but the WBC is actually fairly small. They're just bigoted loud mouths who make a lot of noise. If something happened to them it wouldn't embolden their cause, it would just thin the herd. Plus it would be fun to protest their funeral.

    I understand where this sentiment comes from, but Anonymous has a history of combatting violence, childporn, and hate. The only real moral gray area in which they work is piracy.

    That would constitute an attack, I think. :chuckles:

    I'd settle for people just forgetting they exist, but that will never happen.
