    that's some epic, right there.

    free hugs = win
    getting the scilons to call the cops when you arrived and having the cops leave and get a few hugs in = super win
    getting the scilons to pack up their table and leave = super mega win

    OK!

    So we started out on the corner of 4th and Market. Fair crowd. Huge were given out sporadically. Our whole crew hadn't arrived yet.

    There was a Greek parade at the same time, you can see some of the floats in the pics.

    Eventually we decided to move. I found out later that a anon running late had spotted a "Free Stress Test" booth up the block from us and called ahead. With Tommy Gorman leading the way, we arrived at the target location and found 3 scilons trying to give out books, tests, and fliers. UH OH!

    Immediately we surrounded the area and began giving out hugs and flyers. One anon made a sign with "This man is lying" ala the Clearwater gun man. There were many tourists coming out of the hotel nearby, this must be one of their target locations. Naive tourists are easy prey.

    So in the spirit of Fair Game, we got their VINs and license plates. If we have any PIfags here, I'd appreciate some infoz. I would do it myself but it's like $20 online.

    So they packed up their shit and left and we went back to 4th and Market and gave out hugs till... 5 or 6pm at least. 6 hours of hugs. No molestation.

    The best part was when a man started asking what we are about. We gave him the spiel and he knew about CoS because they had gotten him in for some auditing! He was almost going to go for it, but we convinced him it was a total scam. He walked away a much more knowledgeable person with fliers and hug afterglow.....

    Thanks to everyone that came out!

    [keep checking pics as it will take awhile to up them]

    Looks like you guys had a great time! It's hard to judge which raid was more epic, so lets call it a draw. I'm still waiting for someone to put up the video of the Scilon girl who ran out of the org to give me a hug though..

    yeah well ning just went down.. ugh... i had a perfectly resized and updated version there.

    that flyer is very touchy. for one, the bottom left advertises march 15th. fail.

    i had someone pretty it up into a 8x10 (which it is NOT in that source) so the text wouldnt be all fucked up. print it stretched to fit at MAX dpi. it took my printer 3 min to print the master copy i used for the dittos.

    the text is super small and hard to read so if you fuck up any step, it will be a waste of money and paper.

    When did Anon start Fair Gaming exactly? Spirit of fair game is illegal harassment.
  21. everanonymous Member

    Re: 3/29/2008 San Francisco EPIC hug raid & booth shutdown. [pics]

    We're using the term in the sense of information gathering. not so much harassment. getting VIN and license numbers is to identify IP's and following cars later on and all that other stuff. i'm under the impression we aren't going to use this info to follow and harass them like they do to us.
  22. Bakebehe Member

    Re: 3/29/2008 San Francisco EPIC hug raid & booth shutdown. [pics]

    I realise, my point was maybe its not a good idea to use the term seeing as how you mean it one way, while the scilons mean it another, that's all.

    PM me re. records...for my infosec firm, I set up two accounts for unlimited public records search some time ago, and I can run records for SanFranAnons if it's ever needed.

    Just wanted to congratulate SF anons on your epic win.

    I'll put it up when my movie maker program quits crashing.

    Though I will say that Matrix FAILED HARD while he was filming with my camera. For all the win we've accomplished, almost every video he took is a shot of feet because he decided to simultaneously hand out fliers, and just about everything else is flashing lights in Times Square or the books on display in the Co$ windows. He just couldn't keep the camera on us . . . ever. Last time I ever lend my camera out to someone during one of our missions.

    For shame, facepalm.jpg.

    . . . At least he got that homeless guy who ran up to us for a hug when we were in front of the "Church."

    Anything for next weekend? I didn't even know about this. Still reeling from spring break.
  31. Re: 3/29/2008 San Francisco EPIC hug raid & booth shutdown. [pics]

    check the raid calender.
  32. Re: 3/29/2008 San Francisco EPIC hug raid & booth shutdown. [pics]

    Whoa. I posted to the other thread, not knowing you guys had gotten them to pack up their table on Geary. Awesome! *Now* I feel really bad I went out so late yesterday. Would have loved to be their to photograph all that.

    Wish I could have been there for the table. FACK! Great to see everyone, again.

    I will admit that's pretty good. One of the best moments for us was at about 6:30 when we found two stress test tables in the subway tunnels. Got one Scilon to smile when we showed up to Rickroll behind them.

    Yet, I don't have that video uploaded yet. In the meantime, here's a glimpse at our huge success in Times Square.

    If terrorists were all that good looking and huggy, I would support their siege.
