    The ending was ok, your standard "tightasses will get upset" approach. But the references are so good, I know people who act exactly like that on video games. myg0t got them so good.

    I know far too many people who are exactly like that guy when playing counter strike. For that reason, I'm glad to have a mac that doesn't run it. It was almost as fun when I was playing Soldier of Fortune online last year and I kept killing this person called something to the effect of "ur_/|\0+|-|3r" who decided that I the server was lagging unbelievably because my ping was slightly higher than most, so they convinced the rest of the group who was playing that I was "hacking" and using cheats, and aimbotting, and lagging the server, and kicked me. So I kept coming back, without a word, over and over and over. Eventually they got so incredibly pissed off that they left. The guy in the flash movie was exactly how I imagined "ur_/|\0+|-|3r" to be. Haha. :p

    Yeah, seriously. I can imagine that this is how people act, except maybe/hopefully the end bit....

    I think you're a little too smug in your approach here.

    If you had just done it and not let anyone know it would have been much more poignant. Do the deeds, don't look for the recognition - revel in the fact that they messed up and you let them know.

    It's not for any "recognition", I just saw it, and thought it was funny, I thought others might too, and they did.

    Damn right, these things need pointing up, there's enough crap on the net as it is, anything that plants a flag and say "this is mine" is a good thing.

    Most of us at MR would never have seen it otherwise... and being the sadistic bunch that we are, we revel in this kind of thing. Its what separates us from the "humans" we have to live among.

    What's a human? Do they live on Earth? Are they on the internet? If not, well... I don't care.
