"Every time an Anonymous member goes to jail, a thetan gets its wings." --Tom Newton
Another Anonymous member pleads guilty to cyber-crimes in a federal courthouse. Nothing unusual there. What is strange about this case is how, for several months now, Anonymous members have DENIED than Brian Thomas Mettenbrink even existed.
Yes, that's right. They went a step beyond disassociating from him (as they do with all Anonymous members who get caught) and actually insisted that there is no such person.
In fact, one particularly pernicious "Anon" repeatedly accused me of having fabricated the whole scenario, federal case included. I'll post some of their hilarious denials below the proof (displayed in huge red letters):
"A Nebraska man agreed to plead guilty today in federal court in Los Angeles to participating in a 2008 cyber attack that shut down websites for the Church of Scientology, prosecutors said.
Brian Thomas Mettenbrink, 20, was part of a group that called itself "Anonymous" and planned the January attack as part of a campaign against the church nationwide, according to the U.S. attorney's office."
For your amusement, here's a comment left by the pernicious Anonymous member I mentioned above:
"El Diablo has left a new comment on your post "ANONYMOUS HACKS ANOTHER SCIENTOLOGY WEBSITE. ARRES...":
Been wondering how long it'd take for a new entry.
First off, commenter above is right. Everyone is pretty much scratching their heads over who actually did this. Perhaps it's someone self-identifying as "anonymous" - or it could be the last hurrah of a disgruntled insider. Or maybe YOU made Brian Mettenbrink up!
Thing is, NOBODY KNOWS YET. All just speculation. But why let the (lack of) facts , stand in the way of a good story, right? :P
So go on...get your behind into gear. You sounded pretty sure about it all, so finding verification should be a cake-walk, right? :) "
This is extremely gratifying. After arguing with "El Diablo," quite possibly the most obnoxious Anonymous member there is (incidentally a Holocaust Denier as well) about the very existence of Mettenbrink, I have proof-proof. "Proof-proof" is proof which cannot be suppressed without exposing the deliberate obfuscation.
What I often find infuriating about Anonymous is that, while they will put every assertion of mine on trial simply because I expose them as the Cyber-Bully Cult that they are, they openly and aggressively pursue anybody who challenges their own assertions. The difference is, I actually provide evidence.
I wonder if the inmates at Brian's future home have Internet connections...If so, then maybe his Anonymous cohorts can protect him by cyber-bullying the other prisoners into submission.
