Reports are coming in from several contributors about an ongoing power struggle at one of the most popular destinations on the Internet. Strange
activity has been reported over the last few days including mysterious security
The strange activity follows the appearance of a mysterious poster claiming to have insider information about the nature of the governing
administration. What followed were demands for a large ransom in exchange for silence.
Despite several attempts to secure the site against what seemed to be repeated hacking attempts the poster kept reappearing to dare and taunt the
administrators. All traces of the hacker’s numerous efforts at blackmail were erased as quickly as they appeared and any mention of his activities
were quickly whisked away into a special containment area.
The hacker hinted that the administrative personnel were in fact federal agents tasked with keeping track of certain subversive elements attracted to
the content of the site. This fact in association with recently leaked
about a certain posting referring to the use of certain “forms” to keep in “compliance” with “our new fed partners”
raised the suspicion of several members. Whispers of cover-up were seen in the board’s chat-room.
Having failed to pay the ransom demanded within the required timeframe, the hacker has delivered as promised.

All of the administrators and moderators appear to have been locked out and banned from the forums and the “special containment area” has been
. The ongoing planning and correspondence of nefarious activities behind the
scenes of the site are now clearly visible to any visitors and members.
The resulting power vacuum has resulted in several coups and counter-coups. At least three different factional ringleaders have announced a takeover
including members identified as cmdrkeenkid
As with all crises involving temporary loss of administrative control certain unstable elements have been observed running amok or posting nonsense.

It is not clear at this time which faction is poised to consolidate power and what if any repercussions the unstable elements will suffer when someone
finally takes control.
In fact, several of the ringleaders have garnered support from disloyal and disgruntled members of the old order however, many of those members have
pledged allegiance to more than one leader.
Under such circumstances the power struggle could quickly escalate into full-blown civil war.
It is also not clear at this point in time what has happened to the deposed leadership and their return cannot be ruled out. In such an eventuality,
watch for the usual cover-ups and for proper revenge to be meted out to any members who showed disloyalty in a time of crisis
. If a new
administration holds on to power a purge of the old order and their loyal followers is expected.
The situation is fluid and the power struggle continues. Considering the power and reach of the old order, look for the federal agents to restore
their power base and implement a cover-up.
