4Chan Followers Hack Time's 'Influential' Poll
Presidents, religious leaders, captains of industry--Twittering talk show hosts? Who's the most influential person in the world? Moot, the dude that runs 4Chan, obviously. Government and wars and religious dogma are all well and good, but if you want real guidance, look no further than the dude who runs the site that helped Rickroll the world.
This according to Time Magazine, which claims that its latest poll of the world's most influential people was not--repeat not--hacked. Says the magazine,
Moot denies knowing about any concerted plan by his followers to influence the poll, though TIME.com's technical team did detect and extinguish several attempts to hack the vote.
How's this for anagramal conspiracy--the first letter of the first 21 names on the list spell out the phrase "marblecake also the game." Music Machinery claims to have the details on the hack, which, like all great things in this world, was supposedly launched on 4chan's /b/ board.Originally posted to AppScout.
