View Full Version : I'm hoping this is some kind of joke

According to this if your child installs Macromedia Flash on your computer he is a computer hacker. And Flash is a "dangerous hacking tool".

And if you find "Lunix" on your computer you will have to get a new harddrive.

What kind of idiots are these people?

OMG This is too much
Wow, I guess any bright child (or should i say boy child since this guy apparently thinks no female might be involved in this hacking stuff( with any aptitude for technology should be shut away in a wayward home for misguided youth!

Since when is comet cursor a hacking tool? And Bonzai BUddy might be good for teaching you how to edit a registery to get the crap OFF your machine but thats about it.....

Some peoples kids!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

OMG.....I had comet cursor installed on my machine a few years ago.


There. I've said it. Is there some type of 9 step program or something?

I knew installing flash was a mistake, but the people in the quake room made me do it between handgun lessons and leet speak class...

Chris , when ya find that 9 step program (13 steps maybe?) maybe you can hack into my machine with Bonzai Buddy and get me the info? (I just KNEW that purple ape was evil!)

If your son has requested a new "processor" from a company called "AMD", this is genuine cause for alarm. LOL!
If your son spends more than thirty minutes each day on the computer, ...
The safest policy is to limit your children's access to the computer to a maximum of forty-five minutes each day.ACK!! :eek:
Quake is an online virtual reality used by hackers.This is true... ;)
Is your son obsessed with "Lunix"?Uh, oh!
BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operation system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War.
They may also be used to break into people's stereos to steal their music, using the "mp3" program. LOL!
Your son may try to install "lunix" on your hard drive. If he is careful, you may not notice its presence, however, lunix is a capricious beast, and if handled incorrectly, your son may damage your computer, and even break it completely by deleting Windows, Isn't this a good thing? :p
Excessive time spent on the computer, communicating with his fellow hackers may cause temporary damage to the eyes and brain, from the electromagnetic radiation.There are only 2 people I know that have a prescription for glasses stronger than mine!

The AMD one is the best...
Well, no comment. I don't know in which year they live...

14 Dec 2001, 22:41
Awwwww... I upgraded my computer... I'm a hacker? :(

Please tell me where I can get help.. oh please, oh please!! I'd better get rid of Flash.. I knew there was something wrong that program ;):D

what a load of bollox!

A complaint has been raised with the host in regards to this artical.

:confused: :mad:

16 Dec 2001, 17:20
I think I should contact AMD. They are claming AMD is a 3rd world company that uses child labor.

16 Dec 2001, 23:14
for those that haven't noticed, it's a satire.

there is a posting on this at TalkLoud.net Its funny as mess..

But good point it's a Satire, also a good way to get hits ;)

that article was really funny lol.

Wow. Sounds like this guy is not only hocking AOL service (I wonder if he's getting a kickback for actually saying AOL is "responsible" and "trusted." Also, what is he trying to do? Take out the local service providers? Let one global company run the entire internet? By this section alone I'm peeved at the guy.

AMD processors, regardless of where they are made, have no point in being in a converstion with 'hackers.' Blah!

But, as this is a satire, I tried to calm down after reading it. However, this last bit really got me.

This article is directed mostly at sons, since daughters rarely have the skills to become a hacker. However, it's just as important to watch out for your daughters. Let me explain.

Girls that try to enter the "hacking scene" try to emulate many of the superficial things the boys do, but they rarely have the actual skills to be doing anything illegal.

"Well," you're thinking, "No harm, no foul, right?"


Girls in the hacking scene are commonly known as "scene whores," and this is for a very specific reason. While your girls may not be breaking any laws, they may be throwing themselves at the feet of pimpled teenage hacker geeks, looking for love and attention.

Do you really want a pasty geek felon as your son in law?


Damn him. damn him to hell.

I'm consistently amazed by the amount of people who complain about things posted as jokes like this! :stupid:

26 Dec 2001, 02:04
Hehe, I fail most of that stuff. I fit in with everything there except wanting an upgrade to an AMD processor (why would I want one though when I currently have a Pentium 4 at 1.6GHz?) and using Linux (the numb-nut spelled it wrong). I heard that it was written as a joke to get a lot of kids in trouble when their parents read it.

Where did you find that is says it's satire? The site's mission statement clearly states well just see for yourself:
Quote from their mission statement:
This site is aimed at middle class white male professionals - the sort of people who have been sadly sidelined by today's victim culture, and the domination of homosexuals, geeks, amputees, racial minorities and Canadians, who have all risen up with their discrimination laws and 'equality' to sadly control the media agenda.

Maybe I just missed the bit about it being satire, but this is just going a bit to far even for satire. So it seems that the people who run the site are white male supremists.

i came across this a while back and everything

oh man...someone should nuke them. LOL! :)

Well judging from the fact that so many people didn't realize that it was a joke there's something wrong with that article. And he sounds dead serious about everything in that article too :eek:
