    First it was revealed that Facebook ****ed with hundreds of thousands of users without their knowledge or ethically meaningful consent, and now everyone's favorite quiz site and hangout for creeps OkCupid has done the same thing. This is in fact illegal completely okay because apparently we live in a dystopia where companies can do anything as long as users "consent" by clicking past the legalese mess that is a terms of use agreement.

    So, that got me thinking. Could we be the subjects of something similar? Ramza uses a lot of big words; I wouldn't put it past him to experiment on humans.

    How long does it take to catch a sexual predator on an internet forum.

    The scary part is because I'm fond of poststructuralism any and all experiments I conducted would be so constructed as to accommodate the potential of the subjects to become aware of the experiment and record any resulting reactions.

    Y'know, hypothetically.

    How many nerds does it take to ....... (fill in the blank.)


    And yes before you say you're not one, the fact you're here belies that notion.

    It's an attempt to measure the destructive power of geek rage. By planting false rumours all over the internet that there will be an Episode VII and capturing all the unleashed anger when we find out JJs really filming a sequel to Super 8, our collective governments will channel that rage to destroy North Korea. Or Guam. One or the other, I'm not sure which.

    It's an experiment to see if love can blossom on a message board.

    At first I just assumed the site was run by marketing people who trade consumer habits data for money but now I'm leaning more towards somebody who owns the site that needs to do some research on global attitudes towards the proposition of the existence of absolute truth.

    Ramza can't see him pulling that off but there are a few mods and admins in the past I can think of that probably would [face_thinking]

    Maybe all the mods are pan-dimensional mice looking for the question which 42 answers.

    I have to exercise my brain when people talk like that (the I was barely able to keep up with the guy at the end of the second matrix) but basically he said is that he wants to leave us the possibility of finding out and find out how we react.

    (Figured that out at 12:18 AM)
