Only two days after showing real promise of their activism in airing out the Arizona PD’s dirty laundry, hackers Lulz Security decided to retire on Saturday after 50 days of Internets mayhem.

In a farewell press release posted to its website, the group of six hackers outlined some of its motives over the last few weeks, namely, “the raw, uninterrupted, chaotic thrill of entertainment and anarchy.” Yet, despite the group's more mischievous ambitions, LulzSec admitted, “We hope, wish, even beg, that the movement manifests itself into a revolution that can continue on without us.”

And then they leaked a massive data dump—AOL and AT&T internal information, user logins for EA game Battlefield Heroes, and more—without context.

Shine on you crazy, Love Boat-loving diamonds.
