Submission + - Epilepsy patients attacked through forum

BotnetZombie writes: Wired has an article about epilepsy patients being attacked via their forum. The Epilepsy Foundation runs the forum, found here, and it appears that quite many posts included javascript redirecting the readers to pages with flashing lights and disturbing patterns. Going to pages like that means bad news for many epileptics, some of whom are interviewed in the article. Another disturbing part of this story, is that the party being accused of this bad deed is none other than Anonymous, most famous for their battle against the Church of Scientology. Are Anonymous really that bad, or could this be a mean plot by CoS to crucify Anonymous for something they didn't do?
