Flash games were a lot of fun. I kinda miss them too.

I am guessing he's getting a permanent IP-Ban, am I right?

I do admit I had a bit of a plan I wanted to do - I wanted to get him to say yes, then I'd go digging and try and find his friend Shawn provided the guy existed. I'd then show Real Shawn that Jacob made an account in his name, and put him into a variety of asinine stories. See if that resulted in any strife amongst them.

But then there's the chance his whole social network and persona is generated for this forum, and I decided there were better things to focus on. Like, literally anything else.

Would a permanent IP ban prevent him from operating his sleeper accounts? Would it just require him to use a VPN or a different computer?

nah if he put on an internet condom his accounts would still be accessible (assuming he saved the passwords). But it wouldn't be too hard for Sig to just ban them on sight next time he reared his head.

Jake ain't exactly a subtle boy.

Google was basically optimizing a search engine program that would help the Chinese government hide search results for things they don't like much easier than the current "Great Firewall" until a bunch of people in the privacy department rose against it and forced management to cancel, because what they were doing was effectively aiding a dictatorship bent on hiding information about their own human rights abuse scandals to do so.

I used to play browser games on Newgrounds a lot. Some were just silly little time wasters, some were actually quite elaborate and interesting.

...That car...


...I would understand if it was all religious symbols and texts. I really would.

...I would have been less surprised if it was political stuff, like a car covered in Trump 2020 posters.

...But to have all those *things* to promote tobacco?



And the more you look the worse it looks. "IF MOM AIN'T HAPPY NOBODY IS! *gibberish* WE DON'T EAT WHERE MOM CAN'T SMOKE!" Really?!!?!!?!?!

The best part of this is once you get to the lower layer of protest messages, and realize that this guy, while trying to promote tobacco and smoking, is also protesting against DRUG COMPANIES AND THE EVIL DRUGS THEY PUSH ON PEOPLE THAT WILL KILL THEM...

And Obamacare.  Of course.  Clearly this guy is a Death Panel believer.

Can you be pro-tobacco and anti-prescription-drugs without reality somehow imploding in on itself from the concentrated stupidity?

He mostly did that whenever Linux was mentioned because Stallman wanted to take credit for Linux because it was originally built on top of his GNU.

It's a bit more complex than that.  Linux is just a kernel; it won't run without the rest of the bits of the standard operating system built around it.  GNU was supposed to have its own kernel (the Hurd), but it's the one part of GNU that never seemed to have any decent work done on it.  Linux happened to fill that void perfectly.  So technically Stallman has a point when he complains that calling the OS "Linux" is incorrect.  It's just that he's so ANAL about the whole thing that people choose to ignore him like the creepy uncle ranting in the corner rather than take him seriously anymore.

I miss flash games (or browser games in general). They used to be everywhere, but nowadays so few folks are still making them. It's such a shame, if you ask me.
