    I wonder what Alan Moore thinks of the use of the mask.

    The Guy Fawkes mask was adopted by Anonymous during "operation chanology" to counteract "fair game".

    Google the quoted words for the real story. ;)

    Ironically, the "operation chanology" search gave me the answer about how Alan Moore felt about them using the mask. Thanks. :)

    Happy to be of service. I had to sidestep the cult/religion trap.

    Cheers.

    I know you already found it, but for those who haven't:

    Alan Moore had this to say about the use of the Guy Fawkes motif adopted from his comic V for Vendetta, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:

    “I was also quite heartened the other day when watching the news to see ... that they suddenly flashed to a clip showing all these demonstrators wearing V for Vendetta Guy Fawkes masks. That pleased me. That gave me a warm little glow."

    And I guess I sidestepped the "s" word for no reason then.

    Believe me, given my druthers, I would write quite a bit about the "s" word. Not complimentary I might add. ;)
