Anonymous hackers take down EDL web site

English defenceless

Right-wing Muslim-baiting nut-jobs the English Defence League have come in for a bit of a poking with a sharp stick wielded by hackers with a conscience.

#TeamPrinc3ss is credited with a part in the hack, though to be honest we don't really know what that means. Twitterer froobze, has something to do with it, describing him/herself as a 'Social engineer of Team Princess and media representative', as he twits from his 'secret bunker' somewhere.

The hack may have something to do with Anonymous, orTeamprinc3ss is a splinter group, or a separate gang with similar aims or something else entirely.

What we do know is that the website is currently offline in what is claimed as a take-down by someone or other.

We're guessing this is a UK-based initiative - who else has heard of the EDL? The group seems to have emerged from Luton and is proud to claim a selection of different races amongst their number. The outfit claims not to be racist - it just wants to get rid of the Muslims.

Some hope.

Anonymous isn't a group fs.

Anyone can be in Anonymous. That's the point.

We were going to wipe the EDL site out completely if they'd gone ahead with their racist Sept 3rd Neo-Nuremburg effort.

Luckily for them it didn't happen.
