Anonymous Anti-Scientology Group to Attend SubGenius festival


The Church of the SubGenius has invited the anti-Scientology group "Anonymous" to take part in X-Day, its annual End of the World festival in New York, on July 2nd to July 6th, 2008.

The actions of Anonymous, the worldwide organization of "hackers on steroids," have attracted the attentions of Scientology and the Church of the SubGenius. The SubGenius church recognizes Anonymous as acceptable to its own creed, "Slack."

X-Day will be a celebration of free expression, performance art, rock and roll, pornography, and adult entertainment. Members of Anonymous who attend X-Day will remain anonymous and keep their identities a secret. Random behavior is encouraged.

  I picked  
The wrong reason. It should've been for copying. You had at least one entire sentence, and other long stretches copied directly from the source. Your re-post is no different, but since you'll probably scream about it again, I'll leave it up.
