Lulzsec calls it quits, the Internet breathes a sigh of relief for now

Notorious hacking collective Lulzsec, responsible for quite a bit of tomfoolery in this series of tubes we call the internet is apparently calling it quits. In a post in their favorite data dump pastebin, the group has announced that “it’s time to say bon voyage. Our planned 50 day cruise has expired, and we must now sail into the distance, leaving behind – we hope – inspiration, fear, denial, happiness, approval, disapproval, mockery, embarrassment, thoughtfulness, jealousy, hate, even love. If anything, we hope we had a microscopic impact on someone, somewhere. Anywhere.” The group has added “We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us. The support we’ve gathered for it in such a short space of time is truly overwhelming, and not to mention humbling. Please don’t stop. Together, united, we can stomp down our common oppressors and imbue ourselves with the power and freedom we deserve.” Some people are saying that their sudden and abrupt departure was a direct result of several organizations banding together and looking for the group, including the FBI and other hackers. Whatever the case, the entirety of the internet is breathing a sigh of relief, and we can all go back to sending chain emails and putting grammatically incorrect captions on cat pictures again.
