The FBI Attempts to Intimidate the Internet!

The FBI served 40 people with search warrants and seized electronic devices as their conducted a blatant intimidation campaign against internet free-speech activists. Raw Story has the story here, but we have an update.

From AnonX:

FBI had a warrant to take all my electronics. They came in the dorm room bustin in @ 7:00, and pushed everyone out of bed. They searched the place and questioned all people involved.
I was a passive admin for Operation Payback, and quit early to avoid complications with the law, but it seems the FBI has gotten the better of me.
Questions shall be answered whenever I have time, and when I find a public computer to use as they seized all my electronic assets.

TL;DR: FBI took all my stuff and questioned me about OP
Also, AMA.

No, this is not a hoax. Among those questioned were at least three current IRC operators– who all had their personal items and electronics seized.

Roderick F. Coffin III is the point-of-contact g-man behind the raid in Georgia, who– as this business card shows—

works at 2635 Century Pkwy NE, Suite 400, Atlanta, GA 30345,
can be emailed at roderick.coffin@ic.fbi.gov,
telephoned at (404)679-9000×6029 or faxed at (404)679-1417

*UPDATE* ANOTHER PERSON HIT BY FBI. ANON-Y WAS NOT RAIDED BUT SUBPOENAED:
