Default Most insane hack ever.

This is messed up! I go to check out 2+2 every morning and come across this

http://forums.twoplustwo.com/showthread.php?t=84850

where 3-bet.net has been hacked. really look at the hacked site. anyway its full of clues everyone is trying to figure out what has happened and I guess the owner of the 3-bet had a dispute with someone. Anyway the circles this guy is creating with clues and puzzles is sic.


...or publicity stunt

On a side point, when did 2+2 Change software, the only reason i didn't join the other was because of the software and how hard i found it to function.

I suspect it is a stunt, but it is good.

well if its marketing than someone needs to scoop this guy quick for all the itty bitty details he put into this thing. Did you read the titles of the books? Not to mention the amount of clues in alt txt and the rest of the source

If its not a marketing plan this guy has some serious inner problems and should probably seek out for some psychiatric help real fast

I think the johncow.com blog did a pretend hack for publicity not so long ago. Not sure how that worked out but probably got a few blog posts and forum links for it, maybe its becoming a bit of a trend. I mean, I had never actually heard of 3-bet before but I do now, and I will probably visit there sometime in the future to see what its all about.
