    Not quite as good as the P-P-P-Powerbook, but hilarious. I'm sitting in the school library and I laughed out loud and everyone just stared at me. but it was worth it.

    That made my day. Funny too, in the Daily Mail there was an article about a guy who pranks Nigerian scammers, got them to pose with "code word" signs including "PLONKER" and "I can't believe it's not butter". all very very funny :D

    Greg_ValveOSL tried to steal br0kenrabbit's info, so br0kenrabbit paid him back. He gave the account back in the end.

    What surprises me is that all this could be done in the first place, obviously Valve / Steam isnt very secure.

    How do you come to that conclusion?
    It's very hard software-wise to protect against social-engineering and/or stupidity.

    When someone gives you their account information, including login and password, and you then log into their account... how does that make the company who hosts the account insecure?
