LGF Gets PunkedNovember 27, 2008
As a former member who was unceremoniously shown the door, there was quite a temptation to go with the nuclear option once I discovered that I had access to LGF’s precious dictionary. But alas, I couldn’t bring myself to do something quite that assholish, so I decided to have some mercy and go for a simple prank instead.
And since the enigmatic Zombie holds the primary key to the site, I know that my handiwork will only remain posted for so long. So, I figure that I should probably document everything with a few screengrabs, just for chuckles:
Banning netizens has a way of coming back and biting one in the ass, eh?
So, I left the blog standing, but is anyone wondering where the dictionary itself went? To the nervous lizardoid horde, I say not to worry, ’cause I kept it fully intact….here.
Update: There are LGFers claiming that I “hacked” the dictionary. Since I predicted that this might happen, I decided to snip another ‘grab while I was in there (email addys redacted):
See, I was a user with administrator status. And anyone who knows anything about how a wordpress.com blog works can tell you that someone doesn’t become an administrator unless they’re invited.
No hacking. Not my thing. Just thought I’d clear that up.
Update: Well, I thought perhaps CJ would let pride get in the way of saying anything about it, but here it is:
ChenZhen proved why he was banned in the first place, and showed the world that he’s a true creep who should never be trusted with anything.
“True Creep”? C’mon Charles! That hurts.
Fair enough though, ’cause everyone is entitled to their opinion. But speaking of opinions and “showing the world”, I couldn’t help but notice that 54% of CJ’s peers thought he’s worthy of the “Pro-Censorship Ass-Hat Award“. This is an honor that, from a certain point of view, was “proved” to be deserved based on the fact that even the “trusted” guardians of the LGF Dictionary have turned on him, looked to a seasoned master of the fine art of the flame war, and allowed this punking to transpire.
