Yeah, the whole Russian hacker fiasco that I mentioned earlier. If anything, our "Golden Age", if you want to call it that, ended when that shit happened. It was saddening that we lost so many members, but not that surprising considering just how many times that bastard hit the site.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

What if the hacking was an inside job...organized by a sect of mods/users who wanted the site to appear vulnerable...which then created a pre-disposition for the site to be innevietably acquired by an outside buyer. However those initial mods/users that hacked the site...were employed by the same firm that eventually purchased the website.

The entire objective of the hacking was to create a temporary decrease/dip in the sites traffic, which then allowed the buyer to bargain at a far lower price. This was because the buyers approached the owner of the site after its value had decreased due to a drop in traffic and thus decreased its revenue from ad views/clicks.

However they knew the traffic would increase over time, and since the acquisition the revenues generated from this site have eclipsed their pre "hacking" period. This is because the site now serves as a redirection hub, where traffic is generated by having consumers of other sites view ads from this one when they transition from certain pages on other sites owned by the firm that bought this site.

Lux...... do you even read what you type, or do you drift in and out while you're typing it?

What are you smoking?, may I have some too I've got a report for biology. C'mon don't hog it.

Ps. Where does your username come from?. Is it the measurement of light intensity(Lux) or something else?.

There is (or was I should say) nobody in a position to pull an inside job like that.

I do not believe Lux smokes a anything...because that would interfere...with the natural flow of Lux's posts...

I believe the golden age of heresy online will come when the chosen one arrives and ushers in a new age of peace, prosperity and enlightenment in these difficult times.
The site will rise from the ashes of our dreams like the phoenix of myth and transcend the electronic boundaries imposed by the natural laws of physics, transfiguring the populace of heresy and Lo it will be glorious.

I shall now quote from the book of Ezekiel

I love a good Lux thread now and then. The rambling insanity makes me laugh.

The golden age of heresy will come again when we could all agree with Lux and perfectly understand what he means. There will be peace of mind, numbness of senses and happyness forever. Also, russian hackers will be cheerfully hacked to death.
