girl-wonder under attack

I hopped over to girl-wonder.org just now to find that some... I can't even think of a word to describe them adequately... How about weasel fuckers? That'll do. Some weasel fuckers have attacked girl-wonder.org by filling all the forums with really offensive pictures. I mean grossly nasty. I wouldn't recommend going over there until they've had a chance to clear it up.

I'm stunned. I mean I know they had some trolls in the responses to the first column, but this is on a different level. It's web terrorism.

Think I'm being hyperbolic for effect? The dictionary definition of terrorism is
the unlawful use or threat of violence esp. against the state or the public as a politically motivated means of attack or coercion

Unlawful? Check.
Use or threat of violence? Yes. It's the brutal invasion of a shared webspace to fill it with images intended to upset and intimidate its users, not forgetting the thread titles that are simply threats to rape the moderators.
Against the state or public? It's a community area.
Politically motivated? I think we can take that as read.

So tell me, what part of terrorism is not an appropriate description of this act?

I cannot imagine what these braindead weasel-fucker terrorists thought this would achieve. Sure, it inconveniences everyone for a few hours, and upsets us that our community space has been violated in this way, but it's not going to stop us.

Hell, the biggest message it sends is that some assholes feel so threatened by the mere existance of girl-wonder that they tried to do the web equivilent of firebombing it.

From what I've been told, it was a bunch of MFs from Slashdot and 4Chan

When I got there in the morning (though it was early and maybe the forums got hit by a bunch of different troll teams) it was just the GNAA going at it. There's no real reason they do anything other than to piss people off.

Thanks for the info. I better update my computer security before I visit again. I feel sad, my strictly small-time excursions to the web so far had only exposed me to kindness, humour and interest.

I guess this is ANOTHER case of not being able to have nice things. Because someone will just ruin it all..

4chan would make sense (as in, people from there spamming). Though I've also heard that some people from the "Superdickery" (aka: Superman is a dick) forums may be responsible as well.

Apparently, some of the people there didn't take too kindly to "feminists" invading their comicspace.

If that's true, I'll have lost even MORE respect for those forums (SD) than before. But it wouldn't be a surprise.

I'm perplexed as to what they can imagine this has possibly achieved. So they inconvenienced the forum for a couple of hours; it's all back to normal now. But the people who saw all the vandalism aren't going to forget this peurile, bullying, misanthropic attack for a long time.

I think for only a few of those trolls it was personal, the rest are just fungus that grows wherever conditions present. In any case, they caught us sleeping, (literally, Mary is in a whole 'nother time zone) but we're fairly confident it won't happen again.

I appreciate your anger, but I'm not willing to call them terrorists; it gives them too much power. They're pigeons that take over a public space and crap everywhere, geese at the worst.

I give them no power. I don't care who they are. They are pathetic scum. But their actions are not just nuisance, they are illegal.
