    Hundreds of ISIS social media accounts shut down

    Anonymous: We've taken down 800 ISIS Twitter accounts - Feb. 10, 2015

    Hundreds of social media accounts apparently linked to terrorist group ISIS have been shut down.
    Hacking group Anonymous claimed responsibility for targeting nearly 800 Twitter accounts, 12 Facebook pages and over 50 email addresses because of their links with ISIS.
    Twitter (TWTR, Tech30) did not respond to a request for comment. Facebook (FB, Tech30) said it had shut down 11 of the 12 pages listed by Anonymous because they breached its rules. It declined to comment on whether it had been alerted to the offending content by the hackers.
    Anonymous declared war against Islamic extremists last month, saying in a YouTube video that they would track down their websites and social media networks and take them down.

    Anonymous is not near the enemy everyone seems to want to make them out to be.

    It doesn't matter, 30 seconds after they were taken down, 800 more accounts were put back up. There are no limits on Twitter.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
