Just as the Anonymous #OpISIS was hitting full swing, Facebook decided to shut down the main Anonymous group page for the team hacking the living hell out of ISIS.
The page simply says “Anonymous” but the URL terms it “Cyber Brain.” The group has been run by Red Cult team members for years, along with a handful of other popular Anonymous pages and groups. But this page was one of the first places where information on #OpISIS was being posted, as soon as Counter Current News ran with it.
Our contacts in Red Cult tell us that Facebook gave no warning and no explanation for why the entire group was shut down, except to say that the entire group’s existence was a “violation” of Facebook Terms of Service and “Community Standards.”
But that was nonsense. The group was very careful not to cross any lines with Facebook’s Terms of Service. So why was Facebook apparently siding with ISIS over Anonymous? After all, it was on the Cyber Brain page that our Counter Current News articles – calling out Facebook and Twitter for refusing to deactivate ISIS member propaganda and recruiting accounts – were first posted.
