Anonymous Attacks Isis

Having spent most of my career in ecommerce, one simple rule that one learns very early on is to not piss off the nerds.  

Hacker group Anonymous has been actively hacking Isis, sharing what they're learning with authorities, and shutting down known Isis Twitter accounts.

They're also RickRolling Isis.  Check it out:

Not sure what RickRolling is?  Let's go to Wikipedia:

Rickrolling is an Internet meme involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up". The meme is a bait and switch; a person provides a hyperlink which is seemingly relevant to the topic at hand, but actually leads to Astley's video. The link can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true destination of the link without clicking. People led to the music video are said to have been rickrolled. 

Why is this relevant?  Because that Rick Astley song sucks.  I mean it really sucks:

I love it that some idiot in a dung hut somewhere is clicking on some hashtag like #DeathToInfidels and is immediately served up this.  

As stated earlier, don't piss off the nerds.
