Excerpt: Project Chanology (also called Operation Chanology) is a protest movement against the practices of the Church of Scientology by members of Anonymous, a leaderless Internet-based group that defines itself as ubiquitous. The project was started in response to the Church of Scientology’s attempts to remove material from a highly publicized interview with Scientologist Tom Cruise from the Internet in January 2008. The project was publicly launched in the form of a video posted to YouTube, “Message to Scientology”, on January 21, 2008. The video states that Anonymous views Scientology’s actions as internet censorship, and asserts the group’s intent to “expel the church from the internet”. This was followed by distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), and soon after, black faxes, prank calls, and other measures intended to disrupt the Church of Scientology’s operations. In February 2008, the focus of the protest shifted to legal methods.
