I think it would be fun if they just flame each other and leave us all alone.

One of the unwritten rules of the Internet is not to piss of smart, technically competent people. It is very easy to bring down large websites, and it's difficult to know, for sure, that you are secure. The people doing unreflected denial of service attacks are the ones that are getting arrested - but they're the idiots.

True.. and pissing off Anon is definitely creeping into that corner of the 'Tech Savvy Crowd' by several orders of magnitude. Not to mention WBC is one of the most hated groups out there.

It's like dousing yourself with gasoline, then lighting a flare in the middle of a kerosene storage facility that is leaking all over the place.

You *may* not get burned alive, but the probability of it is astronomically high.  Poking a bear with a pointy stick, or walking through an active minefield are also apt analogies.

Depends on how close to Wisconsin you are, I guess.
