The IRC platform VoxAnon.org, founded to foster conversation among members of Anonymous, was taken offline today in an attack claimed by Anonymous itself, as the infamous hacking group apparently continues to struggle with internal strife.
â€œThis page (http://www.voxanon.org/wiki/Main_Page) is currently offline,â€ a message on the website read. The faction was recently established as an alternative to other Anonymous IRCs such as AnonOps, but soon came under criticism.
Even its supporters admitted the platform may host security companies and police instead of authentic Anonymous members. â€œDo you wanna know the best thing? 90% of the people connected aren’t trolls or feds!,â€ one of the VoxAnon members said. â€œProbably just 10% or something, haha. It’s actually possible to have a real conversation.â€
Furious that the platform suffered one attack after another, the Voxanon member threatened the alleged attackers. â€œI love IRC, I love Voxanon and if I find out who you are, you will feel sorry,â€ the young supporter said. â€œTake it as a threat if you want, but stay away from my beloved network.â€
Vox Anonymous was planned by â€œveteran Anonymousâ€ members that wanted to build a new community to facilitate discussions about the international movementâ€™s activities.
â€œWe represent a home to the homeless, a hivemind to abandoned, and a temple for the unfaithful,â€ their â€œConstitutionâ€ reads.
